With a few accessories and some folding techniques, you can transform a simple scarf into that certain something of the wedding decoration. In the first place, the fabric and the pattern of the napkins play the most important role. Only after you have made this decision can you choose other decorative accessories and types of folds. From elegantly knotted napkins to perfectly draped textiles, here are 10 napkin ideas we love:

1. Fold napkins – knot

Fold napkins - knot

Getting married in English translates as “tying the knot”. Soft linen napkins give your wedding table a romantic, relaxed feeling. Tie them in an elegant knot and place each napkin on the guests’ salad plates, along with color-coordinated cutlery to complete the fairytale flair. The knot is a symbol of marriage and this folding technique will give special meaning to the wedding decoration!

2. Fold napkins – roll folding instructions

For a casual, simple look, flatten white fabric napkin in rolls. With this folding technique, you have the option of using an elegant napkin ring or binding ribbon. Make sure to combine the colors of the rings or the ribbon with the napkin color so that they complement, but not necessarily match, the decorative hue. It looks even simpler and more elegant if you place the napkins without a ring on each plate together with the menu card, as shown in the photo:

The most popular motif for the wedding table – the heart

The typical sign of love is the heart. Complete the casual and elegant table decoration with more romance if, instead of folding classic napkins into a narrow rectangle, you collect them loosely together in the shape of a heart. A selection of different techniques is available to you. Our recommendation for beginners when folding napkins: standing napkins in the shape of a heart. For this folding technique you need a cloth napkin, which you fold from side to side and then in half again. This creates a square that you place on the plate so that the napkin looks like a V. Then place both outer edges loosely on the inner crease and the napkin will take on the shape of a heart. Our tip: add a beautifully calligraphic place card in the heart and tie it together with matching ribbon.

Fold napkins for a wedding – the rose napkin

Another symbol of love is known to us and that is the rose. Roses are perfect as artistic and eye-catching wedding decorations and not only in the form of flowers, but also on the wedding table as napkins when you fold them in the shape of a rose. Red or pink napkins are the ideal basis. You should not necessarily stick to the exact structure of the rose blossom, here you can see a noble and beautiful variant for elegant and simple table decorations:
