Folded Flair: Elevating Your Wedding Tablescape with Creative Napkin Presentations

The tablescape is an important factor of weddings that can sometimes be overlooked, but it is the first thing your guests see when they are seated at the table. You can add a lot of detail to a wedding simply by the way you set your tables and display your menus. Below are a few unique ways you can elevate your napkin folds.


The Knotted Fold

The knotted napkin is a simple way to display your napkin to add some textured draping to your place settings. You can simply place the menu on top of the plate next to the color coordinated silverware and boom—textured charm that ties everything together. To add an extra touch of elegance, consider using a contrasting napkin color to make the knot pop.

The Bow Fold

The bow napkin is a fun, more chic way to display your napkin and menus. Wrap your napkin with some finesse, maybe throw in a napkin ring for extra flair. It’s like a little present on your plate, complete with a matching menu bow for that added touch. Consider incorporating a sprig of greenery or a small flower into the bow for a touch of natural beauty.

The Vertical Band Fold

Keep it sleek and clean with this fold. When you have charger plates or menu cards that you want to be the main attraction, this is a good way to show off those details and designs. This also adds some great layering effects to the piece. For an added element of sophistication, consider using a metallic band or ribbon to complement the color scheme of your wedding.

The Embroidered Fold

The embroidered fold is a unique way if your napkins have a personalized monogram you want to show off. You can simply bunch up your napkin and use a stand out napkin ring to hold it all together to create this effortless look. Experiment with different napkin ring styles and materials to find the perfect match for your wedding theme, whether it’s rustic chic or modern elegance.
