I was so inspired by the photos from the previous post that I decided to create my own Winter White table setting. (I have a 9 year old and 7 year old so white is simply not practical anywhere else in my home.)
Instead of a table runner I used a smaller tablecloth and swaddled it in the center of my table. I reused the globes I already had filled with the Epsom salts and put one on each end of the table. As a centerpiece I used the candle ring my sister gave me for Christmas and then placed another larger globe and candle in the center of the ring. I then flanked the centerpiece with two crystal candle holders with white tapers. Interest was added to the tablescape by varying the types and sizes of both the candles and their holders.
Sorry kids but this table is for adults only!!!
I actually think it is prettier in the evening.
And now for my napkin folding tutorial! Did you notice the little cuff in the napkins? I originally learned how to do this with bathroom towels so I decided to see how it would work using napkins. It it very simple to do.
Lay napkin on the table face down and fold it in half creating a rectangle shape.
Fold about 1/4 to 1/3 of one end of the napkin back on itself.
Flip the whole napkin over and fold the same end of the napkin again back on itself. So now the same end has been folded twice, once on each side.
Flip napkin over once again so the folded side is facing down. Take one side of the napkin and fold it towards the middle. Then repeat with the other side.
Flip the napkin over so that the cuff side is facing up and you are all done!
Now you are ready to place them out on your table with the knife and spoon tucked neatly inside the napkin cuff!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
