The crown fold is very similar to the bishops hat fold in that it looks great lying down or standing up. For this fold in particular, it is especially important to make sure the napkin is rigid prior to folding the napkin. We suggest ironing the napkin with starch before you begin. This fold works well with several of our cotton and linen dinner napkins.
Suggested napkins for this folding style:
White Hemstitched Linen Dinner Napkins
Ecru Hemstitched Linen Dinner Napkins
Iron the napkin flat.
Fold the napkin in half diagonally.
Orient the napkin so the open ends are pointing away from you. Bring the left and right corners of the napkin to the point of the triangle (center of the napkin)
Fold the bottom of the napkin one half of the way up and press this fold down as well.
Flip the napkin over and fold the left hand side over one third of the way. Fold the right side over and tuck the napkin underneath the left fold
Flip the napkin over again and pull the two tips of the napkins down to form petals
