Wow Linda Thinking of a celebration well in advance. Holy moly, planning for Fathers Day in January seems excessive right? Actually I am thinking warm weather vacations, which made me think of golf which brought me back to oops I forgot to post something. So let’s talk Fathers Day, and FYI pin this till June, or start practicing cuz this is my toughest napkin fold to date.
Do you pamper Dad on his big day? We normally go the BBQ route but that is not an excuse not to have a perfect table. This one is easy because it also would work out on the patio. For 2017 I went with the Golf Theme. Honestly the theme was predetermined by the napkin folds because I so wanted to conquer this one. It’s not a green jacket for the Masters but it sure does look like a Golf Shirt.

Golf Shirt Napkins
Aren’t the napkins just the cutest thing ever? This is the first fold in a long time that it took me a while to master. No joke people this one was not the easiest to conquer. Not only did it take several re-do’s to make it look correct I also had to use the iron. This fold would be easier with paper napkins.
I feel like I should apologize too. I created the tablescape in 2017 and it has taken my two years to get the Napkin Fold post up. Good lord I am a procrastinator at times. Big hint I recommend practicing with a paper napkin. Once you feel comfortable that you have mastered the steps keep the iron close by.
Golf Shirt Napkin Folding
Are you ready? Let’s get folding:
- fold each corner into the middle
- fold each side the middle fold
- fold top edge down 1/4 inch
- flip over and fold top two corners to the middle as shown. This will be the collar
- Lift each bottom flap and fold outward, making a crease that’s roughly parallel to the collar fold above it. These are the sleeves.
- the entire bottom half of the napkin upward toward the collar and tuck it under the collar flaps.
There you have it, a fun shirt for any Fathers Day Table Setting.
