  • Napkin rings

Setting the table with elegant cloth napkins and beautiful napkin rings gives an added touch to your dinner party decor. A classic double rolled napkin slips easily into napkin rings of all shapes and sizes while fitting in with almost any theme. Make a special look with napkins and napkin rings on your next dinner party table, and your guests will appreciate the extra care that you give.

Step 1

Lay the napkin out flat on the table in front of you. Fold the napkin in half from right to left.Smooth the napkin so that the layers are even and the fold is straight.

Step 2

Fold the napkin down from top to bottom. Smooth the napkin again. You will now have a napkin folded into fourths.

Step 3

Turn the napkin so that a corner is at the top, and the folded edge is on the upper left side.

Step 4

Grasp the corner that is on the left and begin rolling the napkin toward the center, beginning at this corner. Roll the napkin layers smoothly and firmly, but not so tight that they wrinkle.

Step 5

Stop rolling when you reach the center of the napkin. Grasp the corner on the right side and roll that half of the napkin smoothly toward the center. Stop rolling when both rolls touch in the center.

Step 6

Slip the napkin ring onto the rolled napkin to hold it in place. Turn the napkin over so that the rolls are on the bottom and the smooth napkin surface shows on the top. Put your rolled napkin in place on the table.
