Some easy decorative napkin folds include the goblet fan and the basic silverware pouch. Other simple napkin folds for a formal table include the napkin hat and the napkin dress.
Create a goblet fan napkin fold by folding the napkin in half the long way. Fold one of the short ends like an accordion all the way to the other end. Hold one folded end close and place it into a glass. The napkin naturally fans out over the glass.
Folding cloth napkins adds an element of elegance to the dining setting. Napkin folding methods appear in restaurants as well as many homes.
