Today I am excited to show you how to fold cloth napkins into roses. These are such a sweet addition to any place setting. Wait until you see how easy they are to make too! They are a beautiful way to display napkins for a bridal shower, wedding, baby shower, garden party or just to enjoy on any given day.
A Beautiful Table Set with Love
As a symbol of beauty and love, roses are always the perfect addition to any table. Whether they are fresh roses in a vase, faux roses arranged for a centerpiece, or roses on a napkin ring, you can’t go wrong when adding them into a tablescape.
Setting a table doesn’t have to be a formal affair. Sure, a beautifully set dining table is always lovely, but even a simple setting on a coffee table or buffet can still wow guests.
Napkins are typically the first things guests at a table see and touch. After all, our mama’s always taught us to put our napkins in our laps upon sitting down, didn’t they? Therefore, I love coming up with fun, unique, creative, and beautiful ways to display napkins when guests visit the farm and join us for a meal. They’re great conversation pieces too!
How to Fold Cloth Napkins Into Roses
Folding cloth napkins into roses is quicker and easier than you may think. All you need are 17-inch to 20-inch square napkins. You can use any color that works best with the color scheme of your tablescape. I love using red, but pink, white, and lavender are a few of my other favorite colors.
First, open the cloth napkin up so it lays flat on the surface you are working on. Then, bring one corner of the napkin to the opposite side, creating a triangle.
Begin rolling up the napkin from the bottom fold; going about two-thirds of the way up leaving a 4 to 5-inch triangle at the top.From one end of the roll, tuck in the edge and carefully begin rolling the napkin all the way to the other side leaving about 4 to 5 inches at the end.
Next, tuck the end of the roll into the pocket at the bottom. This will secure the roll in place.
PEEL AND PULL:
Now, peel apart the two layers at the top of the napkin at the top and pull them down and around the roll to the front.
Turn the napkin rose over so it faces you and adjust the “leaves” or “pedals” to your liking.
Now that I have shown you how to fold cloth napkins into roses, it’s time to plan a party! These beautiful rose napkins are perfect to adorn your table and they are sure to be a big hit at your next gathering!
