Updated: Nov 23
The smallest details can make such a memorable impact when it comes to your wedding. There are so many decor components that go into your wedding day that you may not really think about until it is brought to your attention. Napkin folds are more than likely one of those details you might overlook. That is why we want to share some ideas that will help you elevate your reception space with fun and creative napkin folds!
We believe that your napkins can be a real opportunity to play around and have fun with your tablescape, so don’t be afraid of being bold! Let's start with your tablescape. What exactly is a tablescape? The act of creatively and intentionally arranging a tabletop so that it conveys a specific theme, mood, or experience for your guests.
We highly recommend that you embrace the tablescape in the wedding planning process. A beautiful tablescape isn't just something pretty to look at it creates a mood and elevates the overall experience for your guests as they find their seat at your wedding reception.
Now that we have covered tablescape let's get back to the Napkin fold. A beautifully folded napkin sets the scene for a meal to remember and a wedding that reflects little details.
There are several napkin fold methods. We will chat about four of them today. Why only four you might ask. Well let's just say that there is at least 15+ different types of napkin fold and truthfully, I think that there are only four that you should ask your catering company to execute for you. The four I chat about are easy and not very time consuming and will elevate your tablescape. If one of the four don't meet your overall vibe for your wedding tablescape then definitely touch base with your wedding planner for more ideas.
