The rose napkin fold is one of our favorite folds. Despite coming across as intricate and fancy, the rose fold is not that difficult to do. This fold is perfect if you are looking to impress your guests or if you are looking for a fancy, ornate table setting. This fold works well with most of our cotton and linen dinner napkins. For best folding results, it may help to first iron the napkins thoroughly with starch to ensure a more rigid napkin.

Suggested napkins for this folding style:
White Hemstitched Linen Dinner Napkins
Ecru Hemstitched Linen Dinner Napkins
White Scalloped Crochet Lace Dinner Napkins
Ecru Scalloped Crochet Lace Dinner Napkins

Once all of the tips are folded you are left with a square about 1/4 the size of the unfolded napkin.
