There is actually a whole website dedicated to this called www.napkinfolding.com! I do think some of the traditional folds are a bit fussy.
Like this...wow! Certainly would make for a conversation starter! What is this exactly? And what do you do with the little cup when you put your napkins in you lap?
Basically they folded the napkin in a square and then placed the utensils on top over your small plate.
Theresa and I are styling a wedding in Manhattan so we have been thinking of napkin folds. Do you have a favorite fold? Did something work well for your wedding? Please share!
