I love to set a pretty table and learning to fold a napkin can really enhance the table setting. Today I’m sharing How to Make a Tulip Napkin Fold Step by Step.

You may also remember when I shared this Bow Tie Napkin Fold a few months ago.

Both of these napkins folds are easy to do once you know the steps.

How Can I Use A Tulip Napkin Fold?

There are several ways to add a Tulip Napkin Fold to your table.

  • Lay the napkin beside the dinner plate with silverware on top.
  • Place the napkin in the center of plate.
  • Add the tulip napkin fold to water goblet
  • Use a napkin ring on the tulip napkin.

Steps To Make A Tulip Napkin Fold Steps

To begin making a tulip napkin fold, lay the square napkin one a solid surface, with wrong side up.

Fold into a triangle with the fold at the bottom.

Then bring one corner of the triangle up to meet the point at the top.

Next, bring the other corner up forming a square with the napkin.

Then bring both of the outside points into the center of the fold.

Now pick up the napkin and fold back at the center with all the folds facing upward.

Lay the napkin back on the solid surface and spread both of the outside points down flat on the surface.

This will leave the center fold facing upward.

Place your finger along the center and spread the folded area open.

If laying the napkin on a plate or placing inside a glass, fold the bottom point under to secure the folds.

Tulip Napkin Fold Options

One pretty way to display this napkin fold is to place it inside the water goblet.

Another option is to place the folded napkin on the center of the dinner plate or on the left side of the plate along with the cutlery.
