How to: create a three pocket fold napkin

I always get excited about setting a really nice Christmas table, probably more than any one else in my family. And I’ve been thinking about this table setting idea for ages, it so lovely to see it come to life. For me this year, it’s about white, green and gold and creating a simple look that anyone at home can do. While not give the three pocket fold napkin a go. You’ll see how easy Christmas peasy it is.

I paired my three pocket fold napkin with a white table cloth with a dark green runner. I also kept all the other table decorations in white and gold with simple patterns in gold. And added a flat german christmas star as a final touch in the middle of the plates. Tdah!
