Start with the quick folds that work just as well with linen or cotton napkins as paper. Once these designs have been mastered, beginning napkin folders can try making more elaborate ones like the Artichoke (which also doubles as a makeshift bread basket) or a Party-Favor Fold (tuck a flower into the napkin). This title helps to create your own set of personalized napkins by painting or embroidering them with Linda's easy instructions. For ambitious napkin folders who still want to go further, there's detailed instructions for a Swan, a Preening Peacock, and much more. With easy directions, readers can create napkin folds for backyard picnics, elegant sit-down dinners, and buffet suppers. For advice on where to place a napkin on a table, guidelines for table settings, and a foolproof stain removal chart, The Simple Art of Napkin Folding has the answers.
