Fancy napkin folding techniques sometimes appear much more difficult than in reality, so when using a linen cloth napkin, its always SO pretty to dig up some easy napkin folding ideas for your Shabbat and holiday table decor. I don’t think that there is any specific “proper” napkin fold. Just go with whatever mood you are in at the moment. Inspired by David Stark’s Napkins with a Twist: Fabulous Folds with Flair for Every Occasion, I set up my Romantic Red Shabbat  Dinner Table  for a charity event, using the X fold napkin technique, you can use the napkin folding guide below to create your own unique table setting decor. Because this napkin fold leaves a wonderful space in the center, you can place a bud vase, a birthday or Hanukkah gift, a  place card , a personalized cookie or cupcake….. use your infinite imagination and please snap a photo and send it to  The Jewish Hostess to share!

Step 1- Lay the napkin open in a square and fold each corner to the center.

Step 2-Flip the napkin over and fold each corner to the center point.

Step 3- Flip the square over using one firm hand below and placing one firm hand above to clamp and keep the napkin from opening.

Step 4- Fold each corner to the center point once again.

Step 5- Flip the napkin over.

Step 6- Gently pull out center of each quadrant towards the outer edge to create each leg of the “X”.

Step 7- Here are 2 of the 4 quadrants that are open.

Pulling open the third quadrant….

Step 8- All done!

Play around with different placements atop your napkin fold….

A sterling box, or holiday gift is spectacular here.
