As I work on creating a new tablescape for our Christmas Eve festivities, I realize that one of the easiest way to glam up a table is by accenting ones table setting with an easy napkin fold, and an entire table can be done in minutes.
For me, the best part of dressing up your tablescape with napkins is that your children can take ownership and easily learn to fold the napkin themselves. It’s one of those “fun chores” that they’re happy to do.
(I have to chuckle that my daughter videoed all of her “cookie making ingredients” as well. Yes, real life.)
If you’ve forgotten some of the simple “rules” in How to set a beautiful table, just remember this creative acrostic.
F-fork, O-plate (the shape), K-Knife, and S- Spoon (yes, for you type A friends, you must just forget the R). Don’t forget that the knife faces the fork because it protects the spoon.
