If you missed my Valentine pink and red tablescape for kids the other day you can see it here. On the tablescape I used some really cute paper napkins and folded them into Valentine heart pocket napkins. I used the Valentine heart paper napkin pockets to hold forks at each place setting.
Something so simple as a paper napkin once folded into a fun way can make a nice splash on the table. It’s the little details on a table that can make your guests feel special.
Don’t you agree?
How To Fold Paper Napkin Into Valentine Heart Pocket Napkins
Step 1. Start with your paper napkin in a square (most likely it comes like this)
Step 2. Unfold the napkin once so that it is a rectangle
Step 3. Now fold the napkin in half lengthwise so that it is a long skinny rectangle
Step 4. Fold one side up so that the it aligns with the center of the napkin.
5. Do the same thing with the other side. You now will see the point at the bottom of the napkin which becomes the bottom of the heart.
6. Now flip your napkin over. Fold the top right two corners into a point.
7. Fold the other corner the same way. Make sure to press all your folds tightly.
You now have some Valentine heart pocket napkins!
8. Placing the fork into the Valentine paper napkin pocket.
Your fork will now slide in easily and keeps the napkin in place until your guests are ready to eat.
I love to fold napkins in fun ways! I made some polka dotted fabric napkins for Easter and folded them into a flower that you can see here. For Christmas I folded red napkins into trees.
Valentine heart shaped napkin pockets
The paper napkin is a little wobbly until you place it on the table where you want it. Crease your folds as tight as possible so that the shape stays in place.
These cute little pockets just add that extra detail that will make your guests feel special. I know my grandkids will love this.
