Halloween Party Napkin Folding, Designed By The Maestro!
Halloween Party Ideas are already brewing and these occasions are lots of fun for all the family. Try Napkin Folding as this Count Dracula Napkin Fold is a great idea that is simple to do and looks stunning on the table.
The YouTube video is one I filmed in my sitting room with my great friend, Luigi Spotorno. I have known Luigi for many years, ever since I worked in the Marketing Department of a Laundry Company that supplied him with table linen when he worked at the (then) headquarters of Abbey National at 221B Baker Street London (yes, honestly - but that is another story and if you would like to read about it go to Baker Street Tourist Info).
Luigi is truly a Maestro of Napkin Folding and is an amazing and interesting man. He used to provide Napkin Folding Demonstrations at the Exhibition Stand for the Laundry Company and do this wearing an amazing sparkly red waistcoat and tuxedo suit. His demonstrations were hugely popular then and his services are still much in demand today. He has just finished filming a series of napkin folding videos for VideoJug.
The Count Dracula Napkin Fold
This example of napkin folding combines napkin folding and a little bit of crafting. Materials you need are, a black napkin, two sheets of white A4 paper or thin card, a black marker pen and a pair of scissors. The Coundt Dracula Napkin Fold looks brilliant on the table, hope you will have fun making it.
Then you are all set. You could use cloth napkins which are 22" square, but the large size paper or disposable linen-style napkins would work just as well.

That's great Steve, my seven year old Grandson was explaining how to work the dvd player to me the other day and looked at me with a very serious expression and just said 'Ohhhhhhhhhh Nanniee!!' - we can always learn something from children I have found!

Cool projects for me and my granddaughter. I probably will never be able to do it. My granddaughter on the other hand has a flair for this stuff.
