Turn your table into a celebration and dress up your settings with the Bishop Hat napkins.  This fold is a traditional fold that resembles a Bishop’s hat.  Three different styles can be created with this fold, the butterfly, blossom and actual bishop hat. Technically, I should be calling this post the Butterfly Bishop Hat.

If you want to resemble a butterfly look, the front sides of the hat is pulled down, like the fold on this setting.

The blossom style is created with the sides pulled down and tucked into the fold so it looks like flower blossom.  This is kind of a stretch but if you add a flower in the fold one could assume it looks like a blossom.
