The Rose Napkin Fold
This has to be one of the more beautiful napkin folding techniques. Not only is it pretty its also practical. The rose napkin fold is great for placing items in such as wine glass’s, soup bowls and more importantly end of meal chocolates.

This is where it can get a bit tricky. In the video tutorial I have just used my hand to fold down the folds as I went. If your finding this hard there’s a number of solutions; weigh down the centre folds with an object, wine glass, small dish, paper weight, use tacking pins or sowing needles to pin as you go or try to iron it some more.
