Valentine's Place setting

I used this idea on my Galentine’s Brunch tablescape recently and want to show you how to fold a napkin into an envelope shape.

It’s super easy, and makes a fun addition to your place setting.

Start by laying your napkin out with a point at the top. Then fold about 1/3 of your napkin toward the center.

To finish it off, I added a wooden heart cutout for my Valentine’s tablescape.
