Table Setting Tips: 3 Menu Napkin Folds

Table Setting Tips: 3 Menu Napkin Folds
There are a few things I always look forward to when I’m heading to a food gathering or a wedding reception. Of course, I’m always happy to be where I am amongst the people I’m there with, but secretly I’m geeking out over all the little details, and most of all, wondering what’s to eat because, for the most part, my stomach is in charge. Other guests are probably wondering the same thing, so next time you’re planning a dinner gathering or a wedding reception, consider incorporating a menu into your table setting or a little message of greeting. Find inspiration from your menu and think about how you want to extend your theme or add special details into the overall look and decor. It’s a simple way to add a personal touch, and it’s helpful for letting all your guests know what to expect. No matter how big or small your gathering is, every detail counts.

Continuing from my previous tutorial on napkin folding, here are three more ideas that incorporate a menu and how to dress them up:

1. The Single Pocket Fold:

The single pocket fold is very versatile. It creates a perfect spot to tuck in your menu or other essentials, and it’s simple enough that you can dress it up for any occasion. Add a natural element like twine or ribbon to match the overall feel you’re trying to achieve.

2. The Basic Fold:

The basic fold is a simple fold, but I like to spruce it up with twine and other embellishments. Try it with a tag for a place card alternative, or simply layer other adornments on top. You can make these beforehand and focus on your other event details since it holds well in storage.

Upgrade your next table setting with the diamond pouch fold, it’s fancy but easy to achieve. It also has a pouch that is perfect for a menu or flatware.
