We have many different ways to fold tablecloths that are very easy and pleasing to look at. For example, in our first video, we demonstrate a step-by-step tutorial to show you how to easily fold your napkins and place your napkin ring around them. Firstly, you take a square napkin and fold it in half, then from the middle, you fold it again (like you would fold a paper boat origami) from both the right and the left side. Then, you take the bottom corners and you fold them back into the middle again. Finally, you twist those top ends so that they can face in the opposite direction and you place the napkin ring halfway at the bottom.
