Serviette/Napkin Folding, Orchid
3 mins (prep 3)
0 ingredients
2 servings
My interest in serviette folding was born on a wet day at my Grandmother's house, I was a pre teen and helping her with the ironing and watched while she ironed serviettes into wonderful shapes and neatly stacked them for use. I asked her to show me how and she did. Once you know several folds and people see them, they often have at least one other that you haven't seen before, you gain knowledge of the new one and on it goes. Now that I have already posted all the napkin folds I know, I decided to look on the net for some new ones to learn. This one was called the Orchid and you will need one serviette/napkin ring per serviette. PLEASE NOTE, There is an error in the photo sequence...counting from the top, photo 8 (diamond shape, loose flaps at south position)can be completely disregarded, it's up the wrong way and causes confusion, just skip to the next photo and go on...Thanks Heather Feather for pointing it out for me :) I have also amended the instructions to make the steps clearer.
