While we continue enjoying all the beautiful tablescapes posted for yesterday’s Tablescape Thursday, here’s a tutorial for the bunny napkin fold I used in this tablescape: Easter Tablescape with Daisy Centerpiece and Bunny Napkin Fold.
All you need is a little ribbon and some small pom poms from the craft store and you’ll be all set for Easter dinner.
This fold may look complicated but it’s actually really easy to create. I used an 18″ square napkin but a 20″ napkin would probably work even better. I recommend folding your napkins on top of an ironing board with a hot iron at the ready. For this fold, you’ll need to press the folds in place as you work for the best results.
This napkin fold would be great for a spring or summertime table setting.
At this point, you’ll need to stop and cut a piece of narrow ribbon approximately 5-6 inches in length. The length will depend on the weight or thickness of your napkin. Make a loop overlapping the ends of your ribbon, then hot-glue the ends together. For your bunny’s tail, hot-glue a pom pom where the loops overlap.

You could even use a little candy bracelet. Children especially would love this. You’ll still need the ribbon underneath to hold the napkin together, though. Happy folding!
