I love simple napkin folding tutorials – they are a great, elegant way to turn any table into something themed, without the “tacky” angle.

 

I broke away from the classic red hearts for this heart napkin fold tutorial, simply because I felt like that would take away from the elegance. Like this, an easy heart can be integrated into any tablescape, even at a formal event. You can even fold your spouse’s napkin during a rest room break while you’re out on a date!!

I created this heart napkin fold tutorial using a paper napkin. You can definitely give it a go with a cloth napkin as well – just don’t pre-fold the corners – simply tuck them in. When you’re finished, you can gently press it with an iron.

If you flip your heart napkin over, you can actually use it as a flatware pocket, but I chose to leave it as a napkin beneath the flatware. The flatware actually DOES weigh it down, securing the folds into place.

FYI that flatware that you see in the photo is a new set I splurged on from Target and I’m in love. It’s similar in style to some really expensive brands for a fraction of the cost. The napkins are by Artstyle (unfortunately I can’t find the same print online) and feature two contrasting prints, which gives it a unique look. When you fold your heart napkins, the pattern appears differently on either half of the heart.

 
 


 
 

I used luncheon sized napkins since you do start off with it folded in half. Beverage napkins would simply be too small.
