Three Christmas Napkin Folds -Christmas Tree Napkin

Creating Christmas Trees with Napkins

We all know how much I love tablescapes and napkin folding, well hold on to your hats because I have a few more seasonal folds for you.  I have created a step by step tutorial and a you-tube video all to help you discover the secrets behind the fold. Today I will be sharing the Christmas Tree, I already shared the Christmas Elf Hat and the Christmas Elf Shoe

The Christmas Tree was actually my first foray in seasonal napkin folding. I found it on Facebook last year and I just had to try it, not sure why I never shared it but this year I have corrected that error.

 First up was the Christmas Elf Shoe, I swear this has become my favourite seasonal fold, replacing my Fall Rose napkin..  The Christmas Tree is not too difficult, a few more steps than some of the others but very easy to learn and it looks fabulous on your table.  I am thinking of alternating the Tree, the shoe and the hat on my place settings for a real punch.
