I was trying to go for “Folding Floral Face-Wipes” but even I can’t take alliteration that far in a title.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Tonight is our big dinner party and as you know I’m going all out on the decorations: fine china, silverware, and even linen tablecloths and napkins. I wish the napkins were pink or red but I have to be satisfied with white ones and even so they make a cute little flower button for your place settings!
Start with a nice thick cloth napkin. Obviously, linen has that nice stiffness to it.
Unfold it and then re-fold it into an isosceles triangle. Don’t worry about the creases. The lumpier the napkin is, the better.
Starting from the point across from the longest edge, start folding/rolling up the napkin until you reach the end.
Then start at one end of your napkin sausage and start rolling it up.
Don’t try to make it too tight. In fact, don’t try too hard at any of this. The more half-assed you are the better they will look.
Tuck the end of the napkin into one of the rolls to hold it in place.
Now you’re done. You can place it in a decorative bowl and ornament it with real or fake leaves.
Or do whatever you want with it really.
I made a bunch.
And here’s what they look like in context:
There’s a bit of a resemblance …
Overboard? Me? PFFFFFFT.
