Napkin Folding 101 - Bowtie

Yesterday I showed you the goodies that I bought on a recent shopping excursion, and here you see two of them in use in this darling Bowtie Napkin Fold. I love dressing up tables with pretty folds, but often lament the fact that I never get to use any of the rings in my ever-growing collection.  Thanks to this fold, found in what I consider to be the definitive book on napkin folding, Top 100 Step-by-Step Napkin Folds by Denise Vivaldo (more about that later in the week), I can have a pretty fold and use my napkin rings too.

 I’m going to give you a sneak peek of the book here with the pages illustrating this cute fold.  Come back later in the week for more photos and information that will have you champing at the bit to add this book to your collection.

Good Afternoon Pattie, I am thrilled to find a new way to fold a napkin as I tend to lay mine, folded and completely flat, but I love your bowtie napkin. The napkin rings are lovely aswell....I love the fact that they look like keys.
I am looking forward to learning a little more about napkin folding.
Best Wishes

I need this book! I am inherently lazy about making the extra effort to fold napkins in special shapes. Great book to have on hand!

I forgot to tell you how great the napkin ring looks!

I love folding napkins so I am happy to have any tip. I'm going to have to check the book referred to... that's just my cuppa tea. Love your napkin ring too.
