How to Fold a Napkin into a Rose

By: Classic Party Rentals

The rose fold is deceptively easy to master and will impress your guests at your next dinner party. We have used this fold for intimate Valentine’s Day dinners and Mother’s Day brunch.

Follow these steps: 

  • Fold napkin into a triangle
    Lay napkin out on a flat surface and fold into a large triangle.
  • Roll the long side up
    Start on the long side of the triangle and begin rolling up to the top corner. Leave a little bit of fabric at the top (about 3" - 5").
  • Roll in from left to right
    Take the left end of the tighly rolled napkin and start to roll it towards the other end. Tuck in the last two inches into the pocket created by rolling the napkin.
  • Open the leaves of the rose
    Pull apart the point of the triangle you left unrolled in step three. 
  • Flip and adjust 
    Flip napkin over and adjust leaves so rose sits flat.
