If you want to show off your hemstitched linen napkins, the spear napkin fold makes a simple yet elegant statement to your guests. The sharp angles of the folds will bring out the texture and crispness of your linen 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 and orient the open end toward you
Fold the napkin into quarters.
Orient the napkin so that the open end is facing away from you.
Fold the top-most layer almost all the way forward and press it down flat.
Fold the next top-most layer of napkin forward almost as far as the previous one and press it down as well. Make sure the edges are even with the previous fold.
Fold the next layer forward as you did the two before it.
Fold the last layer forward similar to the three before it.
Finally turn the napkin over and fold the both sides of the napkin to the center.
