3 Napkin Folding Ideas You are going to want to try!

Wedding season in is full swing and we are heading into the most popular months. There are many details that go into planning a wedding, and let me tell you not a detail goes unnoticed. An easy detail that can go a long way is how you can fold a napkin. There are a million ways to fold a napkin and each of them are beautiful. I have picked out a few of my favorite napkin folds that I am going to show you how to make.

1. The Bow Napkin Fold

You will need napkin rings for this one.

  1. Start with a square napkin.
  2. Fold the top part down to the middle, then flip the bottom up to the middle.
  3. Fold the left side to the middle, then fold the right side to the middle.
  4. Flip the napkin over.
  5. Pinch in the middle then use the napkin ring you chose.

2. The single Pocket Fold

  1. Place napkin hemmed side down.
  2. Fold napkin in half.
  3. Fold top layer down.
  4. Flip the napkin over.
  5. Fold it in half from right to left.
  6. Fold in half again from right to left.

You can leave it as is or you can add string or ribbon like that image above. This one is perfect if you are having menus put at each seat.

3. The Dramatic Fan

Instructions:

  1. Start with your square napkin face down.
  2. Starting from the bottom make accordion pleats all the way to the top.
  3. From one end, start rolling the napkin, leaving a little bit at the end about 2/3”
  4. Set the napkin upright, gently fan out the small section that was not folded.
  5. Holding on the spiraled section, pull up the beginning edge to form a small peak.

There are many more ways to fold a napkin if the ones above are not what you are looking for. You can’t go wrong with any napkin fold to upgrade your table for your next event. As I mentioned before not a detail goes unnoticed and something like a napkin fold can be what your table was missing. Guests will love the tiny detail. You can use different napkin folds for your home too. Whether it is for a holiday or just a family gathering you can elevate your table with a certain napkin fold. (There are some great ones for the holidays!)

Summer Weddings Ahead

Summer is among us and we are so excited! Summertime is a popular time for weddings, with that being said what are you in store for when attending a wedding this summer?

Bold bright colors will be showcased with flowers, attire and decor. Decor is really important for a wedding, it brings together the whole event. Usually we use a lot of floral for our decor.

This rustic barn wedding used bright florals to liven up the venue. The suspended floral arrangements is something new I have seen. I love it! You can see that they used smaller centerpieces on the table.

 Below are some beautiful vibrant color pallets for the summer. (These colors make me want to plan a summer wedding!)

Once you have your venue and date picked out, I think it is very important to pick a color palette. The color palette will get incorporated into invitations, bridal party attire, florals and linens.

Having a theme to your wedding has been more and more popular. The “Rustic Chic” wedding theme has been around for a few years and is still going strong. This theme has evolved each year with new attributes that make it a little bit different year after year. After Pantone released their 2017 color of the year “Greenery” , adding a touch of green has been a must. Brides are opting for more greenery in decor as well as in their flowers.

 At last we come to my favorite! Everyone has been loving printed table cloths. Prints are very personal and it shows a lot about the happy couple. Printed table linens can be seen being used at an outdoor wedding as well as indoor wedding. Printed florals, geometric shapes, and stripes are very versatile and mesh well with other accents and decor.

I hope this post brings you inspiration for the special day you are planning. Another tip I have for you is even if you are not planning a wedding these trends can easily be incorporated into home decor trends.

An Outdoor Mother’s Day Brunch

Hosting a brunch for Mother’s Day? I have got some ideas for you! If the weather is going to be nice, plan to have your bunch outdoors. I have some great inspiration photos to help you set the perfect outdoor table. You don’t have to use throw away items just because you are outdoors. A simple tale runner or table cloth can be a great add to your outdoor dining table.

Stripes are in right now and those colors are a perfect match for a Mother’s Day celebration. This table setting is very simple. Look at those centerpieces!

Simple is the perfect way to go. The runner is the vocal point on this table. I love the way they tied off the ends. A few candle jars make for a pretty centerpiece option.

 

Enjoy!

We ❤ You!

It has been a great start to the new year! We have been hard at work creating new products for our customers. Prints have been so popular lately! We are happy our customers are loving what we are offering them!

Valentine’s day .. a “Hallmark Holiday” as many call it. I actually love Valentine’s day! I love getting a heart-shaped box of chocolate (even if i buy it myself.) Some people like going out to a fancy dinner others take the stay at home route. If you are planning on staying in with your loved one don’t forget about setting your table for that dinner you are cooking.

I have noticed that table runners are a big trend. Many are opting to set their tables without tables cloths. Instead they are using runners, place mats and napkins. Picture some of these prints on your table! I love updating my tables linens for a new holiday or just because!

hearts

The above prints are only a few of the prints that we offer. We have plenty!

Don’t forget when setting your table for that special dinner make sure you fold your napkins into a heart! Follow the step by step instructions below.

Heart Shaped Napkin Fold

Step 1- Fold your napkins in half vertically

Step 2-Fold in half vertically again

Step 3- Vertically fold both ends up from the center

Step 4- Tuck corner flaps underneath

Happy Holidays from Fabric Textile Products!

Santa Claus is coming to town!
christmas countdown - Copy
 Season’s greetings! With the holiday season in full swing and Christmas right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the office holiday parties, stocking stuffers for the kids, countless hours of wrapping left to do, which ugly sweater to pull out of the closet this year, and finalizing the grocery list for the dinner menu. We here at Fabric Textile Products, Inc. like to include one more thing to our holiday prep checklist – holiday decorating. Of course there’s the multi-colored lights on the roof, a giant inflatable Santa Claus front and center for the neighborhood to see, fake snow galore, and a personalized stocking for every member of the family (pets included) hung on the mantle for all to see. What about the table? Shouldn’t the table be decorated for the big day too? Of course! That’s where we come in to help! Check out our simple, yet festive table setting ideas below.

Try adding sweet treats or a string of lights for a little fun! We used red and white peppermint candies (a holiday staple) and a string of white Christmas lights meant for indoor use to brighten, but not over crowd our table. We also added a simple reindeer vinyl placemat to appeal to the kids. This is great for breakfast with the kids! Pair it with our red cotton hemstitch dinner napkins and forest green Milliken polyester tablecloth and voila! Simple, festive, and quick.

Looking for something a little different from the norm? Try a new napkin fold, such as the classic bow tie, seen here. Add ribbon, lace, or a strip of your favorite holiday fabric for a fun twist. Your guests will be think it took you hours to put together each individual setting, but in actuality it only took a few minutes and a little creativity. Milliken signature napkins work best for folding and can be pressed with an iron to keep the folds creased and crisp! We added a Christmas plaid to the center to match the tablecloth and centerpiece.

The Festival of Lights is almost here, and what better way to celebrate with family and friends than to brighten up your holiday table! Of course, you can find festive table goods and decorations at your local party store, but we think classic table linens are best for the occasion. Our large inventory of table linens provides you with many options. We have cotton, linen, and polyester goods in a wonderful array of colors. We suggest blues with a neutral accent for a classic look or blues with a nice pop of gold for a fun twist! Want to be really creative? Add foil-wrapped chocolate coins for the kids! They are a great table accent and a sweet treat!
