A Table Setting Idea {How to make a Bow Tie Napkin}

Hello Homelovers!

Are you guys dragging all your fall décor out of the closet yet?. I was so busy last year that I didn’t get a chance to set to much up, just those paper flowers. But I managed to at least get started with these cute bow place settings. I shared it on instagram a couple of days ago, so I figured I would share with you guys too!

Fall Table

It’s really easy to make and actually pretty much a basic napkin fold only turned diagonal to make a “bow.” I guess it’s all how you look at it right?

Here is the tutorial step by step with photos so you can make your own! The key is to make that first fold because otherwise you get a lifeless floppy bow.
