My Favorite Way to Fold a Napkin

One of my favorite little niceties in life is beautifully folded napkins.  It's the little things, right?  This is one of my favorite ways to do it.

 Lay the napkin out, right side down.  If you wanted to get all fancy, you could even iron the napkin.

Fold the bottom half up.

Then fold the top layers down on either side (one on top, one behind).

Start folding it accordion style from one side.

Fold it all the way across and pinch the pleats together.

Stick the whole thing in a glass or a napkin ring.

Pull the front layer down.

So the next time you serve something a little too, er, creative, just dazzle and distract your dinner guests with fancy-schmancy napkins in their glasses.  Bon Appetit!
