Book Description

1 April 2009

Use The Simple Art of Napkin Folding to duplicate those beautiful napkin folds you've admired at elegant restaurants and memorable events. It's easy with Linda Hetzer's detailed step-by-step directions and illustrations.  Using cloth or paper napkins, create standing triangular-shaped folds (the "Tavern") for dinner parties.  A few accordion pleats transforms a piece of cloth into the "Poinsettia." Need festive ideas for a children's birthday party?  Make "Sailboats" or "Paper Airplanes." Graduate to more intricate designs that combine napkins with silverware, flowers, and wineglasses.

Special features include

  • A stain removal guide for heirloom linens and synthetic fabrics
  • Easy-to-follow instructions for making napkin rings
  • Graphs for embroidering initials on napkins
  • Instructions for stenciling your own napkins

Filled with inspired ideas, The Simple Art of Napkin Folding turns any square of fabric into a work of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best book on napkin folding 28 Dec 2007
Format:Paperback
I do a lot of entertaining and have recently got into napkin folding. I have bought 11 books on the subject and this one is definitely the best. This is very much an instructional book rather than a pretty picture book which for the serious reader is ideal. It just has b/w line drawings with excellent instructions and a lot of information including making your own napkins and rings. Friends who are not really interested in the subject preferred looking at the books with colour photographs - but for me this is the best of the lot!

Linda Hetzer's book "94 Fancy Folds for Every Tabletop Occasion" is a superb book. It is so easy to follow and the instructions plus the illustrations are self explanatory. Even the designs rated the most difficult and sophisticated are well explained and simple to follow using the written steps in order. The added bonus to the book is the recipe for the bread dough to make your own serviette rings which I have followed with great success. I varnished them and shpaed them to look like bread rolls and have been complimented at dinner parties as they have looked so realistic. The book contains such a variety of designs including children's party napkins. This book should bring back napkin folding to a popular art form as it was a century ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good standby 7 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really like this book, it is very easy to follow the instructions which are illustrated in sketch form rather than photographs. It covers all folds from simple to the more complex. A good standby to have when you want that little bit extra dressing for the table. Came in really handy on Xmas day and New Years Eve, everyone commented on the napkins!
