The Pumpkin Napkin Fold

A simple and elegant napkin fold to bring Autumn to your table. Live your life with elegant simplicity.

This napkin fold is so simple to do and so very elegant! You don’t even have to have cloth napkins…you could do it with a square paper towel! All you need is a square napkin, a napkin ring, and something for the pumpkin stem.

For the stem, I used a dried gourd stem, but you could twist brown paper  from a grocery bag, or lunch sack, too.

Lay your napkin out flat with the napkin ring in the center:

Gather the center of the napkin and pull it through the napkin ring about an inch:

Begin folding in each corner of the napkin and tucking them into the napkin ring:

Now, do the same thing with the corners again:

Turn the bundled napkin over and fluff it round:

Place your stem in the center of the napkin:

Add some elegance to your Autumn table with this simple napkin fold.


About P ~ The Saucy Southerner

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~
