The Lost Art of Napkin Folding

When was the last time you sat down to eat and were greeted by a fancy-folded napkin?

 

If you are like me, it was probably during a visit to a fancy restaurant.

 

Napkin folding is a bit like origami - though not nearly as stressful!

 

During this past year, my 10 year old daughter through her Keepers of the Faith group learned a bit about this lost art.

 

Want to join in but don't have cloth napkins?  Neither did we.  Heavier weight paper napkins will work almost as well!

 

Here are a few of favorites along with their corresponding Youtube videos.
