Are You Ready For The Sunflowers?…A Sunflower Place Setting.
I started to decorate my home for fall this past weekend…and I came across
these wonderful Sunflower Napkin Rings that I had bought at Ross last year
for only 4.99! I decided these would look great with the blue nautical napkins
we have. Fall is JUST starting and some of us are still seeing the dog days of
summer…so this will be a great combination together for this month.
There are two napkin folds that I love to use with the clip variety napkins
holders. The first I call…the Side Fold. This one is a great one to use…if you
have minimal space on your table. When completed you will see how nice it
works with the clips. There is the perfect amount of material to hold the clip
First, fold a square, take two opposing corners and fold to make a triangles.
Take the bottom triangle, and fold over and up to the middle of the napkin.
As you can see it doesn’t have to be straight☺
Now take the top triangle and fold over all the way to the bottom fold. See
Clip the Sunflower Napkin clip over the two folds to hold together! How
adorable is this? Now…don’t be a flower snob☺ Just because summer is over
with…does not mean we have to put away the flowers. Sunflowers are great
to use because they are perfect any time of year, but especially in fall as the
leaves begin to turn a similar color. Let’s do one more napkin fold.
This one I call…the envelope for obvious reasons.
Fold a square…take two opposing corners and fold into the middle till both
Bring the left corner over the top of the folds….to the middle. Now you have
an envelope…darling! Just clip the sunflower to hold all 3 folds in place.
Now, don’t you just love a Sunflower Setting?
MIX IT UP! We are heading toward the most beautiful time of the year, and
nothing says Fall Frolic more than mixing up summer cloth napkins with fall
napkin rings. They look fantastic together. Again, it’s about complementing,
rather than matching. Don’t let your summer decor be put away just yet! You
can add to your fall decor with some of your summer elements. It’s great to be
So what do you have in your closet or cupboards that could be brought out for
the beginning of fall…or the end of summer? Remember to mix it up a little,
in Mexico, they have an expression that goes “Estamos de manteles largos”
which the translation would be like “we are using our finest tablecloth” translation
get out your finest NOW!! Don’t wait for THE special company to come over
…enjoy it while you can☺

Oh, thank you so much. I’m gonna print this off and use the envelope fold for Thanksgiving dinner. I love using the cloth napkins and rings, but it is so funny because the kids weren’t use to it as adults when they came to dinner because as growing up they usually had the paper napkins when we had holiday dinners. 🙂 Happy Fall and have a nice Thanksgiving.

What a fun idea. Thanks for the like on “Enter Here”.. it led me to your interesting blog.
You are such a blessing to me, and I love your creative ideas! My daugther-in-law (and family) loves sunflowers; they’re coming for a visit today, so I’m going to try this one! Hugs—
Thank you for your kind words! It is amazing when you need it the most…along comes an angel☺
Isn’t it wonderful how God uses us to bless one another! So glad. May the Lord bless you with many angels!! 🙂
Your final images are great, and showing how to fold a napkin in such a beautiful way will definitely help in my still life styling in the future…thanks!
Laurie, thank you so much for coming to my blog for a visit and comments! I’m a big fan of fabric napkins vs. paper, and typically make my own. Your sunflower clips are adorable – and I hadn’t thought of using something like them to dress up the table setting. Lovely!! Now I’m excited to find some clips. 🙂 Thank you!!
Cute Laurie! Love the sunflowers with the blue for Florida fall!
This is really beautiful!!! Never know when a skill like this could come in handy! Love it!!
It’s interesting and I din’t know that. Thanks for sharing. 😀
Those are so cool! Thanks so much for sharing how they are made. Re: BuzzFeed Food – Congratulations! 😀
very nicely done, I will have to try this sometime.
Thank you, it is amazing how many hits this post gets a day…who knew☺
Ihave very similar rings. Mine are flat on the bottom and the flowers are metal. Are yours the same? To be honest I bought them as a gift but so liked them I kept them 🙂
No, my flowers are silk and have a clip behind them to clip to the napkin.
Thanks for the continued support of my blog!

I love this post with the tutorials. I will have to try this for my next gathering. Thanks for linking up to Tasty Thursdays on The Mandatory Mooch. I hope you link up again this week. The party will be live tonight. http://www.mandatorymooch.blogspot.com
Laurie, these are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing and contributing to the link party at http://www.FineCraftGuild.com/party/
I love this idea. Thank’s for sharing..
Visiting from MYM- hope you can you stop by..
Very sweet!! A nice idea since we have always used real napkins to save money. I stopped over from “Weekend Linkup Whatever” to enjoy your post.

Pretty!! I’d love for you to link this project up to Do Something Crafty Friday: http://seevanessacraft.com/2012/09/do-something-crafty-57/
Love the envelope variation! I can think of so many cute napkin rings to use with this.
Thanks for sharing at Rural Thursdays, Laurie. Have a lovely weekend.
Thanks for the bonus of napkin folding along with your beautiful sunflower!!
Creative post ~ Beautiful napkins! ~ (A Creative Harbor) on Blogger ^_^
Great tutorial – these are totally cute!
Very cute! I love the yellow and blue combination.
So cute. If only my family deserved real napkins 🙂
What a cool idea. I’ll have to share it with my daughter. She loves to decorate the dinner table when we have our Sunday night dinners in the dining room.
You’re too funny, Laurie! I just know you had to hunt and hunt for that field of sunflowers hiding I your house!! LOL so glad you stopped by and linked up to Walk and Click Wednesdays! ;->
Love the sunflowers and love the look with blue.
Ohh, these are nice, especially the top fold. I like the colors you chose to put together too.
GET OUT! You know I LOVE sunflowers… This is a great idea. My decor is more warm colors so the blue won’t work…but I think a sage green could work well. I think I’ll look for something that’ll work and take a photo…maybe put it on my blog…link it back to you!
Wonderful how to!
We re-use napkins; kineepg them in the basket on the table for a day or two. The little\’s gets thrown in more frequently than mom or dad\’s, but I like the individual napkin ring idea. I\’ve bought good heavy cotton napkins on sale that really work, but I like the washcloth idea too.
