Napkin Folding

Napkin Folding Art: The Pyramid

I would like to introduce another segment in my napkin folding series, the pyramid fold. I really like to use this technique when I want to add a bit of height to my table. The presentation is wonderful to use with any kind of napkin and holds up exceptionally with a stiff material. While the fold is easy to do and simple, it still adds texture and shape to any setting.

This fold is particularly popular at weddings. It tends to be used at round tables, because the geometric fold helps to guide the eye around the table. I personally use the pyramid fold to highlight the angles of our square placemats. By off-setting the plate at the corner of the mat, the fold accentuated the print and brought height to the place setting. Enjoy!

Napkin Folding

Start by folding your Pomegranate napkin in half into a triangle. Rotate so that the folded edge faces you, bring the right and left corner up to the center.

Flip the napkin over and fold in half to create another triangle with the open end facing you. Lift and fold the napkin along the center and that’s it!
