The family is due to arrive any minute!
You've planned the meals, have the China out, polished the silverware, and are excited for their arrival.
While you wait, here is an idea to give that special touch to your table.
My chefy daughter learned the art of napkin folding. She has made some for you. We've also given the standard names for these folds. If you see one you like, go to You Tube for instructions. We have found some great instructional videos. Chefy daughter used them to practice will while studying for the napkin folding portion of her exam. She received 180% out of 100% on her exam. Wahoo!!!!
You know I only bring you the best. Without further ado, here is chefy daughter's napkin folding samples and their names.

Many of these folds can also be done with paper napkins. Go ahead and give it a whirl. Surprise your family when a wonderfully folded napkin on their place setting.
