If you’ve been to the craft store recently you probably noticed they are already gearing up for the changing of the seasons. I figured why not take their cue and start trying out some ideas I have so I’m not pulling my typical, wait until last minute and be running around like a crazy woman, or worse, the I’ll do it next year routine. When I think of fall, I think of turkeys and giving thanks, brown and yellow, orange and red. I had this idea that this year I would like to use some beautiful brown turkey/ and or pheasant feathers in my decorating. I went with the idea and came up with the idea to use the feathers like quill pens. Once the ball idea was rolling I decided to use napkins to create envelopes and torn construction paper for name tags.
To create the envelope napkin fold you need a set of square napkins. Four simple folds later you’ll be setting your table!
I ironed each of my folds to create a crisp paper-like look that stayed in place well.
1. Fold napkin in half corner to corner.
2. Fold one end in 2/3 along fold.
3. Fold opposite end in 2/3 along fold crossing over end from step 2.
4. Fold top tip down to create envelope flap.
Tada! Envelope napkin! Place a name tag on top pr tuck a note inside. You may even skip a blank piece of paper inside for each guest to write a note to the host or a message of thanks to be shared!
