Rose Napkin Fold Tutorial….

Today, I’m going to show you how to make a rose napkin fold just like the one I made in my sister in law’s Downton Abbey themed bridal shower over the weekend.  In case you missed all the darling details, you can view them here.  I’ve planned a few parties in my time and I’m learning the importance of having things that are cute, but still functional.  This rose napkin fold accomplishes both of those main points.  Here is how easy it is to make your own roses!
