At first, Uncle Joe and Aunt Juanita plan to come, then they decide they can’t, then they decide they can and ask if they can bring Joe's brother. Especially around holidays, the reality is that crowds often shift, so it’s up to you to keep an accurate head count as you move forward. However, don’t spend all your time trying to keep a solid count or you'll drive yourself — and your guests — crazy.

On Thanksgiving Day, why not create some visual impact with the food you’re going to serve? Try these following tips for adding flair to your Thanksgiving table.</p>\r\n\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_301016\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-301016\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/thanksgiving-meal-adobeStock_96654010.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"630\" height=\"420\" /> ©Evgenyb / Adobe Stock[/caption]\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Make your own dip bowls: </b>When serving a vegetable tray with dip, try making a bowl out of a red, yellow, or green bell pepper. Simply wash the pepper, cut off the top portion (about 1/4 to 1/2 of it from the top), and remove the insides. Wash the pepper thoroughly with water and allow it to dry. Then fill her up!</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Likewise, when you serve a fruit tray with dip, try using an orange, grapefruit, small cantaloupe, or honeydew melon.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Carve holes in your bread:</b> Breadbaskets or bread bowls are great for serving dips, soups, sandwiches, and individual servings of bread, such as muffins and sliced bread. To make a breadbasket, take a large loaf of bread, cut a circle in the top, and remove its insides. You can also use smaller round loaves of bread, preparing them as you do the larger loaves and using them to serve soup.</p>\r\n\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 400px;\">\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"400\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341329.image0.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"400\" height=\"266\" /> ©Adam Korzeniewski / iStockphoto.com[/caption]\r\n\r\n</div></li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Garnish:</b> Fresh mint sprigs, cilantro, and parsley are the most common garnishes. Place them in the center of the food item, and you won’t go wrong. The addition of the small piece of greenery can have a huge visual impact.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Make special garnishes:</b> To make a tomato rose, first wash and dry a tomato (other than a cherry or grape). Take a sharp paring knife and, starting at the top, gently “peel” the skin off in the same manner you’d peel an apple. Then gently take one end of the peel and start rolling it up to create a rose shape. The end result is a beautiful garnish that will make you look like a pro!</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">To fashion a strawberry fan, take a washed and dried strawberry (with the green stem still attached) and, using a paring knife and starting at the bottom, cut thin slices into the strawberry. Slice up to the green stem. Gently fan the pieces of the strawberry out and place it on the food as a garnish.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Break out the baskets:</b> When serving bread, rolls, muffins, chips, or crackers try placing them in a basket that you’ve lined with a color-coordinated napkin. Cookies are also a good choice to serve out of a basket, as long as they’re of the crunchy variety, not chewy. The chewy kind is best served on a platter so they don’t break apart. Eating utensils and napkins can also be served in baskets.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Mask your dishes with leafy greens:</b> Leaf lettuce and kale cover a multitude of ugly platters, plates, and the like. Make sure you thoroughly wash and completely dry each piece of the greens, then line the platter with them and place the food on top.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Borrow Grandma’s paper doilies:</b> When you’re serving a food such as chips, cookies, or anything else that doesn’t belong on a bed of lettuce, line the platter with foil and then place paper doilies on top.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Use baking pans as big platters:</b> Have a large piece of meat to serve and no platter big enough? Use a cookie sheet or a jellyroll pan lined with lettuce.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Vary the heights of food:</b> You can greatly boost your table’s appeal by using various heights with your dishes. For example, use a cake pedestal to serve cookies or a tiered serving dish to serve snacks. With just a little planning, you can give the food a whole new look.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","description":"<p class=\"ReviewDate\">You’ve worked hard deciding what foods to serve on Thanksgiving and have chosen the finest ingredients.

Try these following tips for adding flair to your Thanksgiving table.</p>\r\n\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"attachment_301016\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"630\"]<img class=\"size-full wp-image-301016\" src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/thanksgiving-meal-adobeStock_96654010.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"630\" height=\"420\" /> ©Evgenyb / Adobe Stock[/caption]\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Make your own dip bowls: </b>When serving a vegetable tray with dip, try making a bowl out of a red, yellow, or green bell pepper. Simply wash the pepper, cut off the top portion (about 1/4 to 1/2 of it from the top), and remove the insides. Wash the pepper thoroughly with water and allow it to dry. Then fill her up!</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Likewise, when you serve a fruit tray with dip, try using an orange, grapefruit, small cantaloupe, or honeydew melon.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Carve holes in your bread:</b> Breadbaskets or bread bowls are great for serving dips, soups, sandwiches, and individual servings of bread, such as muffins and sliced bread. To make a breadbasket, take a large loaf of bread, cut a circle in the top, and remove its insides. You can also use smaller round loaves of bread, preparing them as you do the larger loaves and using them to serve soup.</p>\r\n\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 400px;\">\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"400\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341329.image0.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"400\" height=\"266\" /> ©Adam Korzeniewski / iStockphoto.com[/caption]\r\n\r\n</div></li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Garnish:</b> Fresh mint sprigs, cilantro, and parsley are the most common garnishes. Place them in the center of the food item, and you won’t go wrong. The addition of the small piece of greenery can have a huge visual impact.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Make special garnishes:</b> To make a tomato rose, first wash and dry a tomato (other than a cherry or grape). Take a sharp paring knife and, starting at the top, gently “peel” the skin off in the same manner you’d peel an apple. Then gently take one end of the peel and start rolling it up to create a rose shape. The end result is a beautiful garnish that will make you look like a pro!</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">To fashion a strawberry fan, take a washed and dried strawberry (with the green stem still attached) and, using a paring knife and starting at the bottom, cut thin slices into the strawberry. Slice up to the green stem. Gently fan the pieces of the strawberry out and place it on the food as a garnish.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Break out the baskets:</b> When serving bread, rolls, muffins, chips, or crackers try placing them in a basket that you’ve lined with a color-coordinated napkin. Cookies are also a good choice to serve out of a basket, as long as they’re of the crunchy variety, not chewy. The chewy kind is best served on a platter so they don’t break apart. Eating utensils and napkins can also be served in baskets.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Mask your dishes with leafy greens:</b> Leaf lettuce and kale cover a multitude of ugly platters, plates, and the like. Make sure you thoroughly wash and completely dry each piece of the greens, then line the platter with them and place the food on top.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Borrow Grandma’s paper doilies:</b> When you’re serving a food such as chips, cookies, or anything else that doesn’t belong on a bed of lettuce, line the platter with foil and then place paper doilies on top.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Use baking pans as big platters:</b> Have a large piece of meat to serve and no platter big enough? Use a cookie sheet or a jellyroll pan lined with lettuce.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Vary the heights of food:</b> You can greatly boost your table’s appeal by using various heights with your dishes. For example, use a cake pedestal to serve cookies or a tiered serving dish to serve snacks. With just a little planning, you can give the food a whole new look.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","blurb":"","authors":[{"authorId":9854,"name":"Dawn Simmons","slug":"dawn-simmons","description":" <b>Dawn

The benefits of this type of gathering are that no one has too much work or cost to absorb and everyone gets to try lots of new and varied dishes. Bring the kids, hire one babysitter or older child to sit or entertain the children in the basement (or a separate part of the house), and the adults can visit or play cards upstairs or in the living room.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Wine-tasting party:</b> This type of get together can be a very educational and fun experience (and not to mention thrifty). Here’s how it works: The host’s responsibilities are to invite friends or family, lay out the rules, and provide glasses, crackers, fruit, and cheese for all. Then guests each bring a bottle of wine. The host predetermines the rules, such as the following: Bring red wine, $10/bottle maximum, with bottles disguised in paper bags. After all the guests have arrived, randomly number the bags, open the wine bottles, and begin the tasting. Discuss the characteristics and qualities of each wine and vote on your favorite while enjoying your cheese, fruit, and crackers and the company of your friends. At the end, unveil the winning selection.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Football party:</b> Hosts provide the theme entrée, which has something to do with the opposing team. For example, if your team is playing the Miami Dolphins you may want to serve fish tacos, or for the Tennessee Titans, Greek gyros. Guests bring drinks. Rotate hosts with each game.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Game night:</b> Invite two to four people over after dinner to play Farkel (dice game of skill and luck; all you need is six dice and the instructions, which you can find on the Internet) or another game of your choice.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","description":"Do you want to socialize with friends and family while spending as little money as possible?

Keep these tips in mind to run a smooth kitchen, which is especially important for a big holiday meal:</p>\r\n\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Check what you need before you start cooking:</strong> Nothing is worse for a cook than being halfway through a recipe and realizing that you’re out of a key ingredient. Before you ever start working on a recipe, check all the ingredients, pans, tools, and anything else you may need and be sure you have them all on hand.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Follow the recipe:</strong> The best way to ensure that your dish will turn out right is to follow the recipe exactly. When you’re cooking for a crowd, you don’t have time for experimentation, so now isn’t the time to exercise your creativity.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Be careful with substitutions:</strong> Substitutions often work great, but err on the side of caution at Thanksgiving. If you want to make a substitution in a recipe, make a small-portioned size of the recipe and try it out before you make the crowd-sized serving. You don’t want any surprises on the day of your event, and substitutions can get you into trouble if you don’t test them out first.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Use parchment paper:</strong> Parchment paper is a grease- and moisture-resistant paper used to keep things from sticking. It’ll save your cheesecakes, sausage balls, rolls, cookies, and other baked items from sticking to the pan. It also makes cleanup much quicker and easier. Parchment paper is inexpensive and available at most grocery stores.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Tightly seal all containers: </strong>When you cook for a crowd, you need to make some foods in advance and store them in the refrigerator. Yet, refrigerators can easily cycle odors, and you may end up with foods that have absorbed tastes and smells that you don’t want.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Make sure all containers and bags are thoroughly sealed when you store food in the refrigerator. Use heavy-duty storage bags, and double and triple the bags to make absolutely sure no odors can get in or out.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para Tip\">If you need to store onion in the refrigerator, here’s a quick tip. Get a canning jar with a sealable lid and store the onion in it. Glass doesn’t breathe, so no odors will escape into your refrigerator.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Avoid last-minute preparation: </strong>Some dishes can be made at the last minute, and some can’t. For example, sauces, dips, marinades, and other foods with combined ingredients often need time to chill and set. Plan, plan, and plan some more. Make sure your last-minute food preparation is reserved for foods that you really can and should make at the last minute.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Wash your hands religiously: </strong>Raw meat and eggs often contain germs and bacteria, such as salmonella. Mix a little salmonella in your Caesar salad, and you’re asking for trouble. Because proper cooking kills germs and bacteria, your meat and eggs won't make you sick; however, you always run the risk of cross-contamination, which happens when you don’t wash your hands, the counter, or utensils with hot water and antibacterial dish soap before you use them on another food item.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Avoid having too many recipes in the works at once: </strong>Cooking for a large group requires more focus than a typical family meal. As such, avoid trying to do too many things at the same time.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Be aware of what you can’t do ahead of time: </strong>You can’t make everything in advance, so plan carefully. That chocolate soufflé will fall if you make it much in advance, and other desserts and dishes will have similar repercussions. In short, prepare what you can ahead of time, but if the dish doesn’t allow for it, then don’t.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Be attentive to personal hygiene: </strong>Personal hygiene does matter, because the consequences are very embarrassing. So play it safe. Use a hairnet, or at least put your hair up if it’s long. Keep your fingernails short and don’t wear any jewelry when you’re preparing food.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","description":"<p class=\"ReviewDate\">Cooking for a crowd on Thanksgiving is always a little stressful.

up to serve for Thanksgiving dinner","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p class=\"ReviewDate\">Nothing is worse than cooking Thanksgiving dinner and running out of food. It is important to err on the side of excess while sticking to your budget.</p>\n<p class=\"Remember\">There is no exact formula for cooking for a crowd, so you have to consider your crowd. Do they really enjoy eating? Will many children be present? Are most people in your crowd weight conscious? All these questions and similar ones impact how much food you prepare.</p>\n<h2>Quantity planning for holiday appetizers</h2>\n<p>Appetizers and drinks don’t have to be a pain in the neck, but planning them tends to be confusing. Because appetizers don’t lend themselves to a quantity chart per se, you can let the following list guide you:</p>\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>For appetizers preceding a full meal: </b>Offer at least four different types of appetizers and six to eight pieces per person. For example, say you have 20 guests. In that case, you’d need at least 120 total appetizer pieces.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>The more variety you have, the smaller portion size each type of appetizer will need to have:</b> Therefore, you don’t need to make as much of any one particular appetizer.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>When you serve appetizers to a crowd, always include bulk-type appetizers:</b> Bulk-type foods are items that aren’t individually made, such as dips or spreads. If you forgo the dips and spreads, you’ll end up making hundreds of individual appetizer items, which may push you over the edge. To calculate bulk items, assume 1 ounce equals 1 piece.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Always try to have extra items: </b>Black and green olives and are great for extra filler<b>.</b></p>\n</li>\n</ul>\n<h2>Quantity planning for holiday drinks</h2>\n<p>The following list give you some general beverage-serving guidelines for entertaining:</p>\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Soft drinks:</b> One to two 8-ounce servings per person per hour.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Punch:</b> One to two 4-ounce servings per person per hour.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Tea:</b> One to two 8-ounce servings per person per hour.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Coffee:</b> One to two 4-ounce servings per person per hour.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Water:</b> Always provide it. Two standard serving pitchers are usually enough.</p>\n</li>\n</ul>\n<h2>Quantity planning for soups, sides, main courses, and desserts</h2>\n<p>The following tables can help you determine how much food you need for some typical soups, sides, main courses, and desserts. If the item you’re serving isn’t listed here, you can probably find an item in the same food group to guide you.</p>\n<p class=\"Tip\">Buffet-style affairs typically figure at a lower serving per person, because buffets typically feature more side dish items than a plated meal does.</p>\n<p>Don’t use the quantity tables as an exact science; use them to guide you and help you make decisions for your particular crowd. If you’re serving a dish that you know everyone loves, make more than the table suggests.

If you’re the one making Christmas dinner for the crowd, ask yourself the following questions:</p>\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>How much can you spend?</b> You may be thinking goose or duck, when your budget calls for turkey.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>What are the age group and gender of the guests you’ll be cooking for?</b> Teenagers, both girls and boys, can eat, eat, and eat some more. However, tots aren’t going to eat as much.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>What items can you borrow?</b> Borrowing items can save you a lot of money. For example, if you’re hosting an upscale buffet served on china, you’ll certainly save money if you can borrow the dishes rather than rent them.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>What are you responsible for cooking?</b> Are you cooking the appetizers, dessert, and everything in between? Or are you cooking only the main course?</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>What can you borrow?</b> You may need extra plates, tables, chairs, glasses, cooking tools, and such items. Borrow them. Don’t waste your budget on items that you’ll rarely use and can borrow from friends and family. Nothing is wrong with getting some help and borrowing things you need instead of buying them.</p>\n</li>\n</ul>\n<p class=\"Remember\">Planning a budget doesn’t have an exact formula, because a number of factors come into play. Remember that your budget should be a relatively firm guideline for how much money you spend — not necessarily 100 percent set in stone. The idea is to come up with a budget that helps you have a great event without maxing out your credit cards.</p>\n<p>Keep these issues in mind:</p>\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Before you start planning anything, think about your bottom line.</b> Don’t start with what you’d ideally prefer and then see what happens with your budget — you won’t like the results. Rather, start with a reasonable budget and work backwards.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Plan the event according to your budget, not the other way around.</b> If you’re cooking Christmas dinner for a crowd of 20 and you want something really elegant, but your budget won’t allow you to prepare everything you want. Instead of overspending, find ways to compromise. You may spend more on the entree and try to find a few less expensive side dishes and appetizers to make up the difference.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Remember, you can cook great food without breaking the bank, so think about how you can find a win-win resolution with what you want and what your budget will allow.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Watch out for &#8220;budget creep.&#8221; </b>As you plan, think about everything you need to buy so that your needs and budget are accurate. When you&#8217;re shopping, it&#8217;s easy to think &#8220;Oh, those colored paper plates are so much prettier than plain white!&#8221; or &#8220;Maybe I should get another bottle of wine, just in case.&#8221; Be strong — stick to your budget!</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Be reasonable and flexible. </b>You may try to tackle the world with the best crowd meal ever, but be reasonable about what you can spend and what you can prepare.</p>\n</li>\n</ul>\n"}],"videoInfo":{"videoId":null,"name":null,"accountId":null,"playerId":null,"thumbnailUrl":null,"description":null,"uploadDate":null}},"sponsorship":{"sponsorshipPage":false,"backgroundImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"brandingLine":"","brandingLink":"","brandingLogo":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"sponsorAd":"","sponsorEbookTitle":"","sponsorEbookLink":"","sponsorEbookImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0}},"primaryLearningPath":"Solve","lifeExpectancy":"Two years","lifeExpectancySetFrom":"2023-04-05T00:00:00+00:00","dummiesForKids":"no","sponsoredContent":"no","adInfo":"","adPairKey":[]},"status":"publish","visibility":"public","articleId":208874},{"headers":{"creationTime":"2017-03-26T16:09:07+00:00","modifiedTime":"2022-12-13T18:06:13+00:00","timestamp":"2023-09-14T18:18:53+00:00"},"data":{"breadcrumbs":[{"name":"Home, Auto, & Hobbies","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33809"},"slug":"home-auto-hobbies","categoryId":33809},{"name":"Food & Drink","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33839"},"slug":"food-drink","categoryId":33839},{"name":"Holiday Meals & Entertaining","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33851"},"slug":"holiday-meals-entertaining","categoryId":33851},{"name":"Parties & Celebrations","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/33855"},"slug":"parties-celebrations","categoryId":33855}],"title":"How to Make Fancy Folded Napkins","strippedTitle":"how to make fancy folded napkins","slug":"how-to-make-fancy-folded-napkins","canonicalUrl":"","手机搜检索擎改进":{"metaDescription":"If you're looking to add panache to your dinner table for a special occasion, try these fancy folded napkin techniques.","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0},"content":"An inexpensive way to decorate your table for a special occasion is to make fancy folded napkins.

You can try various napkin-folding methods; start with these ways of folding to create fancy napkin designs.</div>\r\n</div>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Fan napkin fold</h2>\r\nUsing a simple accordion-style pleating technique, you can do a few napkin folds that work really well with napkin rings. Place these napkins in the center of your dining plate at each place setting.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"394\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341308.image1.jpg\" alt=\"image1.jpg\" width=\"394\" height=\"400\" /> This simple napkin fold is a classic.[/caption]\r\n\r\nFold your napkin in half. Beginning at one short end, start folding the napkin in an accordion style, making folds approximately every inch.\r\n\r\nInsert one folded end into a napkin ring. Push the napkin ring up no further than one-third from the bottom. Fan out the top pleats.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Decorative pocket napkin fold</h2>\r\nDecorative pockets can hold silverware, a sprig of holly, place cards, or any other treat that you want to tuck in. You can place it in the center of each dinner plate at each place setting at the table, or if it’ll be holding utensils, you can place it to the left of the plate.\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 395px;\">\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"395\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341309.image2.jpg\" alt=\"A decorative pocket fold is pretty as well as functional.\" width=\"395\" height=\"400\" /> A decorative pocket fold is pretty as well as functional.[/caption]\r\n\r\n</div>\r\nTo make a decorative pocket, fold the napkin in half and then fold it in half again to make a square (or start with a folded paper napkin). Turn the napkin to make a diamond shape with the folded point closest to you. Separate the free edges and begin folding each layer down to the point. Continue folding down layers, leaving the last layer up.\r\n\r\nTuck the sides of the napkin to the back. Insert your silverware or other desired item.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Buffet parcel napkin fold</h2>\r\nTry this pretty wrapping technique for when you want to accent your table with special ribbon. To do this, fold the napkin in half and then fold it in half again to make a square (or start with a folded paper napkin). Turn the napkin to make a diamond shape with the folded point away from you. Center the silverware on the napkin close together.\r\n\r\nFold the side points in to touch the edges of the silverware, making small triangles. Overlap edges over the cutlery and tie a ribbon around the center of the parcel.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Flower napkin fold</h2>\r\nThe center of this folded napkin lends itself to holding little objects that could, for example, relate to a holiday or other special occasion. Or, with nothing placed in the center, this fold still looks pretty.\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 400px;\">\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"400\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341310.image3.jpg\" alt=\"The flower fold is deceptively simple to do.\" width=\"400\" height=\"400\" /> The flower fold is deceptively simple to do.[/caption]\r\n\r\n</div>\r\n<ol class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">To begin, fold each corner of the napkin into the center.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Repeat again by folding the newly made corners into the center.

Crisply starched napkins or weighty paper dinner napkins that are folded in interesting shapes bring art to the setting and can accentuate a dinner table with style.\r\n\r\nFancy napkin folding is not as difficult as it looks, and the creative table dressing is an additional way to impress your dinner party guests!\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 400px;\">[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"400\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341307.image0.jpg\" alt=\"[Credit: ©iStockphoto.com/Studio-Annika 2012]\" width=\"400\" height=\"293\" /> © iStockphoto.com / Studio-Annika 2012[/caption]\r\n<div></div>\r\n<div class=\"imageCredit\">How should you fold a napkin for a fancy dinner party or holiday event? You can try various napkin-folding methods; start with these ways of folding to create fancy napkin designs.</div>\r\n</div>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >Fan napkin fold</h2>\r\nUsing a simple accordion-style pleating technique, you can do a few napkin folds that work really well with napkin rings. Place these napkins in the center of your dining plate at each place setting.\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"394\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341308.image1.jpg\" alt=\"image1.jpg\" width=\"394\" height=\"400\" /> This simple napkin fold is a classic.[/caption]\r\n\r\nFold your napkin in half. Beginning at one short end, start folding the napkin in an accordion style, making folds approximately every inch.\r\n\r\nInsert one folded end into a napkin ring. Push the napkin ring up no further than one-third from the bottom. Fan out the top pleats.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Decorative pocket napkin fold</h2>\r\nDecorative pockets can hold silverware, a sprig of holly, place cards, or any other treat that you want to tuck in. You can place it in the center of each dinner plate at each place setting at the table, or if it’ll be holding utensils, you can place it to the left of the plate.\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 395px;\">\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"395\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341309.image2.jpg\" alt=\"A decorative pocket fold is pretty as well as functional.\" width=\"395\" height=\"400\" /> A decorative pocket fold is pretty as well as functional.[/caption]\r\n\r\n</div>\r\nTo make a decorative pocket, fold the napkin in half and then fold it in half again to make a square (or start with a folded paper napkin). Turn the napkin to make a diamond shape with the folded point closest to you. Separate the free edges and begin folding each layer down to the point. Continue folding down layers, leaving the last layer up.\r\n\r\nTuck the sides of the napkin to the back. Insert your silverware or other desired item.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Buffet parcel napkin fold</h2>\r\nTry this pretty wrapping technique for when you want to accent your table with special ribbon. To do this, fold the napkin in half and then fold it in half again to make a square (or start with a folded paper napkin). Turn the napkin to make a diamond shape with the folded point away from you. Center the silverware on the napkin close together.\r\n\r\nFold the side points in to touch the edges of the silverware, making small triangles. Overlap edges over the cutlery and tie a ribbon around the center of the parcel.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab4\" >Flower napkin fold</h2>\r\nThe center of this folded napkin lends itself to holding little objects that could, for example, relate to a holiday or other special occasion. Or, with nothing placed in the center, this fold still looks pretty.\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 400px;\">\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"400\"]<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/341310.image3.jpg\" alt=\"The flower fold is deceptively simple to do.\" width=\"400\" height=\"400\" /> The flower fold is deceptively simple to do.[/caption]\r\n\r\n</div>\r\n<ol class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">To begin, fold each corner of the napkin into the center.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Repeat again by folding the newly made corners into the center.
