Complete Illustrated Book of Napkins and Napkin Folding: How to create simple and elegant displays for every occasion, with more than 150 ideas for folding, making, decorating and embellishing Reviews
This book is divided into sections of how to make cloth napkins, napkin ring ideas, easy folds, fans and pleats, complex folds, and pockets and parcels. There is also a template section. The pictures are clear and have clear and easy to follow directions.
I am going to improve my formal dinner table with many of the folding ideas I got from this book. Truth is however you can probably get a better perspective by watching people actually do the napkin floding on YOU tube and save your money. I personally love a hard copy of everything. My table will never look the same. It helps to be retired and have the time to lavish on a detail like a napkin...but it sure impresses my guests.
Great book with abundant coverage of various types of napkin folding. Such fun for our adult children to learn the art of elegant table setting.
Good book. With lots of folds, My daughter will have fun setting the table with fancy napkin folds.
My mom purchased this book for my birthday and I have folded numerous napkins. Directions are easy to follow and I love my table setting with the fancy folded napkins.
Excellent! Made a great gift!
Lots of great folding designs for cloth and paper. Clear instructions and photos make this book very useful and enjoyable.
The ideas were good, just not exceptional.
