Pyramid Napkin Folds

Curious to know how to fold a Pyramid Napkin? The Pyramid Napkin Fold is one of the most common and easiest styles of napkin folds used by restaurants and caterers everywhere. That’s not to say it’s stale in any way -- to the contrary, we think the fact that a person, restaurant or caterer would take the time to enhance the table decorations adds a bit of elegance to the event. The Pyramid Napkin Fold is a great way to achieve this.

Step 8. Turn the napkin over again, this time keeping the open end pointed toward you.

Step 9. Stand the napkin up by lifting it and folding it along the center. Take your now-elegantly-folded Pyramid napkin and rest it on a plate or in the center of a table setting. If the Pyramid fold won’t seem to neatly stay in shape, you may need to refold it or try adding some starch.
