How to Wrap Silverware

Wrapped silverware looks fantastic and is a terrific way to finish off your table. Silverware may be wrapped in a variety of ways, all of which are basic. Once you’ve mastered the fundamentals, you may play around with other versions. Best of all, you may add napkin rings or ribbons to the wrapped bundle to match your table’s décor.

Doing a Simple Rectangular Wrap

1. Place a napkin in the shape of a square on a level surface. Make sure the back of your napkin is facing up if it has both a front and a back. Check the hems if there isn’t a front or back; make sure the folded-under side of the hem is facing you.

  • This technique will result in a slim, beautiful wrap with straight ends.
  • The napkin should be about three times the height of your knife.

2. 2 to 3 inch fold up the bottom edge (5.1 to 7.6 cm). The proportions don’t need to be perfect; they’re only for making a pocket for your silverware. Your napkin should now be twice as tall as your silverware.

  • This will create a soft pocket in which to place your cutlery.
  • Make sure the pocket is the same width all the way around. The side edges must be aligned.

3. On the right side of the napkin, tuck piled silverware beneath the fold. Make sure your silverware is vertically positioned and peeking out from behind the napkin’s pocket.

  • Begin stacking your silverware with the knife. After that, add the forks, beginning with the largest and working down to the smallest.

4. Fold the top edge of the napkin so that it is at the same height as the knife. Make sure the bottom edge of your piled silverware is tucked into the pocket of your napkin. Grab the top edge of the paper and fold it down over the silverware.

  • Make sure the top edge is beautiful, crisp, and straight, just like the pocket.

5. Make sure the top edge of the folds hits the bottom fold. Because napkins and silverware are available in various sizes, what works for one may not work for another. The top edge of your napkin should contact the napkin’s folded bottom edge. If it doesn’t, change the pocket’s width until it does. For example:

  • The bottom edge is excessively broad if the top edge does not meet the bottom edge. Narrow it, then fold the top edge down again.
  • The bottom edge is too thin if the top edge goes beyond the bottom edge. Fold it in half again, then pull the top edge down.

6. Starting on the right side, roll the napkin firmly. Flip the right side of the napkin over to the right. Make sure the silverware is tucked inside the fold before starting to roll it securely to the left.

  • As you roll, be careful to smooth down any ripples or creases. Make sure the folded edges at the top and bottom don’t shift or move.

7. If desired, add a napkin ring or ribbon. Like at a restaurant, you might wrap a small strip of colourful paper around the centre of the napkin, then overlap and fix the ends with a drop of glue or a piece of double-sided tape.

  • Set the bundle seam-side-down on the table if you don’t want to add napkin rings, ribbons, or paper. This will protect it from unravelling by weighing it down.

Creating a Diamond Wrap

1. Place a square napkin on the table in the form of a diamond. You should have one of the corners facing you. Rotate the napkin if the straight edge is facing you. Ensure that the fabric’s back/wrong side is facing up.

  • This approach produces a securely wrapped bundle in the same way as the first. It will, however, have diagonal seams rather than a seam along the length of it.
  • Choose a napkin that is about 2 to 3 times the length of your knife.

2. To construct a triangle, fold the bottom corner towards the top. Be a crisp crease and make careful to smooth out any creases. A straight, horizontal edge should be facing you, and a pointed top edge should be facing away from you.

3. Place stacked silverware lengthwise at the folded edge’s centre. The folded edge should be aligned with the full side edge of your cutlery. An equal quantity of napkin should protrude from the left and right ends of the silverware.

  • You’re laying the silverware on the napkin horizontally, not vertically.
  • Start stacking the silverware with the knife and work your way down to the tiniest fork.

4. Fold the silverware’s left and right corners over. Make sure the bottom margins are well aligned. The length of the silverware determines how much you fold the corners. The silverware’s ends should be tucked exactly into the folds.

  • These folds should not be creased.

5. Starting at the bottom edge, roll the napkin into a tight roll. Fold the bottom edge of the folded cloth upward once more. Begin wrapping the package as tightly as possible towards the top edge.

  • Slow down and maintain the piled silverware in place with your fingertips. Don’t let them get away.

6. A ribbon or napkin ring may be used to tie the bundle together. The bundle may loosen if you use a napkin ring, but a tightly wrapped ribbon will hold it together better. You might also use a thin strip of paper to wrap around the bundle and fix it with glue or double-sided tape.

  • Set the package seam-side-down on top of the table if you don’t want to fasten it with anything.

Folding a Pointed Pouch

1. Make a diamond using a square napkin. Make sure the back side of the napkin is facing up if it has both a front and back side. You’ll get a flat, house-shaped bag with this procedure.

  • If you wish to produce a non-pointed bag, fold the napkin in half and face one of the straight sides.
  • Use a napkin that is about twice as tall as your knife.

2. Place your silverware so that it touches the top corner of the napkin. The silverware should not be stacked. Instead, arrange the fork, knife, and spoon on top of the napkin, side by side. Ensure they are centred, vertically orientated, and touching the top corner.

  • Instead, have the silverware touch the top, straight edge for a square bag.
  • The left and right sides of the aligned silverware should have an equal quantity of cloth.

3. Fold the napkin’s bottom corner over the silverware. The length of the silverware determines how many inches or centimetres you fold it up. The silverware’s bottom edge should be snuggled precisely within the fold. You can wind up completely or partially coating the silverware.

  • If you’re building a bag that isn’t pointed, instead fold the bottom straight edge up.

4. Bring the napkin’s left corner to the right corner. The silverware should be entirely covered on the left side of the napkin, with the leftmost item resting neatly within the fold.

  • The left edge of the cloth will be a few inches/centimeters from the right edge, depending on the width of the silverware.

5. The right corner of the napkin should be folded over to the left side. Pinch the piled fabric layers (left edge and right edge) and fold them over the silverware and to the left. Make sure the rightmost utensil is snuggled within the folded border on the right.

  • The right folded edge of the cloth will extend a few inches/centimeters beyond the left folded edge. That’s OK.

6. Tuck the napkin’s right corner beneath the bag. Lift the bag carefully, keeping it parallel to the table to avoid it coming apart. Fold the extra fabric beneath the bag on the left side. You should have something that resembles a tall, narrow home in the end.

  • You’ll wind up with a slim rectangle instead of a pointed pouch if you don’t use a point.

7. If desired, tie a ribbon around the bag. Cut a long length of ribbon and lay it on the table horizontally. Place the bag on top of it vertically, with the cross in the centre. Wrap the ribbon over the front of the bag and knot it in a bow.

  • Tie the ribbon loosely enough to prevent the bag from being distorted. The pouch should not bunch up like a bowtie and should stay flat.
