With the calendar page turned to November, I have all things turkey on my mind! I’m sharing a fun and easy turkey fantail napkin fold for your Thanksgiving table!
I used a colorful plaid napkin to mimic the bright plumage on these foil wrapped chocolate turkeys I found at World Market recently. For best results, choose a fabric napkin that has some ‘body’ to help the fantail hold its shape.
Here are the easy steps for this fantail turkey napkin fold. It’s more complicated to write than it is to do:
With the right side facing down, fold the bottom of napkin up towards the top, leaving 1 1/2 inches of space between top edge and bottom edge (the hem will show with this first fold). Repeat, folding bottom half up again leaving another 1 1/2 inches of space. Press folds with an iron if desired for a crisp edges.
Fold left edge of napkin over 1 1/2 inches, then fold back over, repeating to make even accordion pleats down the length of napkin.
Hold bottom edge of napkin so it resembles a fan, and slide on a napkin ring to hold in place. My ‘family’ napkin rings came from Pottery Barn several years ago and are still available, here.
These Royal Stafford Turkey plates are some of my favorites and have a touch of blue with fruit, flowers and wheat along the border of the plates. I found them at HomeGoods several years ago.
You can see them at the table, here, along with an easy method to create a blooming pumpkin, no cutting required!
