Guide to napkin folding for Thanksgiving

The complete guide to folding napkins for Thanksgiving

Table settings are an essential part of any dinner gathering, particularly the most anticipated meal of the season: Thanksgiving! With all the turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls, pies, etc., things are bound to get a little messy. Needless to say, napkins are  necessary. Especially for one who always seems to end up with a jam smear on her blouse… what’s a girl to do? Anyways, it is time to step up our napkin game and (attempt) to banish all spills and splotches! We’ve chosen six festive designs to DIY: 1) Boat, 2) Maple leaf, 3) Turkey, 4) Crown, 5) Leaf, and 6) Pumpkin.  These will put the finishing touch on your Thanksgiving spread and even impress your mother-in-law with the ever-critical eye!
