Pineapple Napkin Fold

Create this simple napkin fold using a 17 or 24″ square luncheon napkin. Select  cotton or linen napkins with decorative edgings such as hemstitching, open work embroidery or any decorative edge  to make this napkin fold eye catching.  To make this napkin fold my own, I rolled the napkin after folding into design to lie flat on dinner plate instead of standing upright in a napkin ring.  Both ways are impressive and your guests will love your attention to detail.
