Since it's countdown to Easter Sunday, Grandma has a lot to do here at the little yellow cottage. We will have a big old egg hunt on Sunday followed by dinner. That means I started preparations today! I wanted to finish things for the table first, so I did my bunny napkin folds. There are lots of directions on the world wide web, but I found Martha Stewart's to be the easiest to follow. Fortunately, I found some lovely pink napkins at World Market last week. Whew, that was a close one. Thought I was going to have to make them.
Before we moved to Nashville, I worked at the local casino at home as the floral designer and event decorator. Therefore, I have folded LOTS of napkins. The difference between a nice table and an outstanding table can sometimes boil down to the napkin fold. It always made me so happy when a bride walked in to her reception room and was overwhelmed with joy at the sight of her beautifully decorated room. It was lots of work, but well worth it.
Grandma likes to do things for all the grandsons to enjoy, especially for holidays. We are making memories here. Don't you have things you remember with great fondness? That's what we are doing. Someday, they will tell a story about a time at Grandma and Pawpaw's house and remember all the good times we shared. Let me show you how to do these cute little bunny napkins. You might want to make some memories too.
First, press all your napkins. Then, lay one out flat on a table.
Grasp the two bottom outside corners and fold the bottom up 1/3 of the way.
Every Day Donna
