TheChic_triple-pocket-napkin-featureAs an event planner, and later and “entertaining expert” I’ve folded a lot of napkins y’all!

There are so many different ways to arrange your table linen so that by doing it just a little bit different every time you can create completely different looks without having to buy new stuff! In my new series here on The Chic Party, I’m helping you Set The Table.

A ton of people on Pinterest have shown you a triple pocket napkin, but I thought it’d be fun to upgrade it by using two complimentary prints. I used Aquarius Blue Blooms and Chevron Blue napkins from Pier One.

how to fold a napkinI think the blue and white together look delightfully nautical so I suggest you use this on your next outdoor party. Leave the linen off your table and let the raw woodgrain add to the decor. If you want a placemat, I’d just do something to add a little texture like jute or rattan.
