Napkin Folds + Tablescapes

Hello! It’s been a hot minute! But here I am in the midst of wedding season chatting about napkins…! Lol. Napkins are a small but essential part of any wedding table setting. For real. They not only serve a practical purpose but can also add a touch of elegance, sophistication, or personality to the overall look and feel of your tablescape – and your reception in general. One easy way to elevate your napkins, and indeed your entire tablescape, is to incorporate unique and creative napkin folds. I love this, as it can really put a spin on your whole table setting aesthetics! But it’s so easy! (I mean, clear it with your caterer first, obviously, as they are the ones who will be executing it for you!)

Here are some ideas for modern napkin folds that will impress your guests and make your wedding reception tables look stunning.

The Classic Fold

This is the most basic napkin fold, and it’s perfect for a simple and elegant look. Clean, simple; easy. You could of course spruce it up a bit as well, like below.

The Pocket Fold

This fold is ideal for weddings with a more rustic or informal theme. This is the preferred option if you are having flat place names or menu cards, because they can be tucked into the fold.

The Drape

This fold is modern and the one I see most often at my weddings. It’s sleek and stylish. You can also do many small variations on this depending on what plates and crockery you are having, and if you are including charger plates, having a skinny drape, wide drape, etc.

The Knot

Modern but a bit more fun than ‘The Drape’! Don’t worry about these looking uniform, because that’s the whole vibe!

Whether you opt for a classic, rustic, romantic, elegant, or tropical theme, there is a napkin fold that will complement it perfectly – and so many more that I haven’t even mentioned here. In conclusion, napkin folds are a simple yet effective way to add an extra touch of personality and style to your wedding reception tables. Why wouldn’t you want to put your own spin on this?
