How to Fold a Monogrammed Napkin

A napkin folded to highlight the monogram

Having monogrammed napkins is a luxury most people do not have. They reveal personal ownership, and pride in that ownership. The object of the monogram fold is to show off these special napkins in their best light. As monograms are generally placed in a corner and angled diagonally this fold will leave the monogram facing the diner. It can be placed on a plate or set beside a place setting.

Step 1 - Fold Monogrammed Napkin

Place the napkin face down on the table so that the monogram is on the lower right side, face down.

Fold down the top of the napkin so that it touches the bottom.
