With February 14th fast approaching, love is in the air. How will you express your affection? The old way? Last-minute scramble for reservations at an over-packed restaurant? Yawn. Why not try the new way, the Linen Chest way? In our book, it’s a no-brainer. For a truly special evening, take it far from the madding crowd, with an intimate meal at home. Thanks to Linen Chest, raising the romance bar is as easy as one, two, three nifty folded napkins. All you need to set the mood for love.
1) The Rose
Step 1: Iron or steam the table napkins. Check out the travel size iron we used here.
Step 2: Grab a corner and roll the napkin tightly toward the opposite corner.
Step 5: To secure the shape, tuck one end of the napkin under a fold. Voilà!
Step 6: You can add rose leaves for a finishing touch.
2) The Heart
Step 1: Fold pressed napkin in half.
Step 2: Repeat step one.
Step 3: Fold left -hand side as pictured above.
Step 4: Repeat with the right hand side.
Step 5: Shape into a heart by tucking the corners as pictured above. (apply iron to keep folds in place)
Step 6: We added a velvet stick-on heart to jazz up the look.
3) The Envelope
Step 1: Take one corner of pressed napkin and fold to the middle.
Step 2: Repeat with the opposite corner.
Step 3: Fold the right corner to meet the other two.
Step 4: Fold again.
Step 5: Fold a final time to form the envelope pocket (a perfect spot to tuck a love note!)
Step 7: For a loving touch, seal the envelope with a velvet stick-on heart.
