If you're setting an elegant dinner table for a special occasion such as a holiday party, wedding reception or anniversary soiree, don't forget the cloth napkins. Using cloth napkins rather than their paper counterparts will give the table a sophisticated look. White cloth napkins will lend a traditional flair to the table, while bright napkins will add a pop of color. As a creative twist, fold the napkins into wine glasses and place one next to each guest's place setting.
Lay the cloth napkin in a diamond shape on a flat surface in front of you. Smooth the napkin with your hand to remove any wrinkles.
Fold the napkin's bottom point up to the top point to create a triangle shape.
Bring the bottom left corner up to meet the top corner. Repeat the action with the bottom right corner to form another diamond shape.
Turn the napkin over, so that the folds are face-down on the surface. Fold the napkin in half horizontally to create a triangle shape.
Grasp the triangle's bottom point and tuck it into a wine glass. Pull the sides of the napkin out over the sides of the glass; the center of the napkin will stick out of the glass.
