The Best Way To Create A Bow Napkin

The bow napkin is a variation of the basic fold. It is contemporary and stylish, whilst being both quick easy to achieve.

Depending on the napkin you choose, you can achieve very different looks. For example, if you choose a gingham print napkin and tie it with a satin ribbon, you’ll achieve a cute and charming bow napkin. In comparison, if you choose black napkins, you’d have a sophisticated napkin, resembling a bow tie. The bow napkin is incredibly versatile, as it’s fully dependant on your choice of napkin and what you pull it together with.

The bow napkin works best with heavier fabrics, as it needs to be able to hold its structure and shape.

I would recommend using a square napkin, otherwise your bow napkin appears too skinny. It also works best with heavier fabrics, as it needs to be able to hold its structure and shape. An example would be taffeta, which would achieve a very traditional look.

Bow Napkin – Step By Step

 

  1. Iron all of your napkins – this will help you to achieve a more professional looking finish.

 

  1. Lay you napkin upside down on a flat surface.

 

  1. Take one side of the napkin and fold it inwards until the outer edge meets the middle. Make sure the corners are perfectly aligned, before defining the crease and flattening the fold.

 

  1. Repeat with the other side. Take the outer edge and fold it inwards into it meets the middle. Once again, make sure the edges are aligned before flattening the fold.

 

  1. Fold the napkin in half lengthways.

 

  1. Fold the napkin in half widthways, creating a rectangle.

 

  1. Using a ribbon, tie it around the centre of your napkin and pull it tight. Adjust the rolls formed so they sit correctly.

 

  1. Place the napkin atop your plate.

I’ve opted to use a ribbon to create my bow napkin. I’ve especially chosen one with long tails, which, as you can see from the styled image, you can tuck under the plate. This is a unique and delicate way of presenting your napkins and it ties your tablescape together. If you don’t want to use ribbon, you could opt to use a napkin ring. Slide it into the centre and adjust to achieve the perfect bow napkin.
