Hot Pink Rosette Napkins were featured on a StoneGable tablescape this earlier this week. They added a big punch of color and a little extra surprise to my Mikasa Indigo Bloom Tablescape


My e-mail has been bursting with so many request for a rosette napkin folding tutorial!
These beautiful blooms could not be easier to make!
StoneGable Rosette Napkin Folding Tutorial
Lay a square napkin wrong side up. DO NOT IRON IT~ unless it is too wrinkled to handle. The wrinkles makes the rose look more interesting.
Fold the napkin into a triangle by taking one corner and bringing it up to the opposite corner. Place the long folded edge of the triangle closest to you.
 Beginning with the long end, roll the napkin away from you.
Roll up the entire napkin up. You will end up with a long napkin rope.
 Beginning on one end and working to the other, roll the napkin rope around itself.
Continue wrapping the napkin around itself. Tuck the end of the napkin underneath and into one of the folds in the bottom of the napkin.
If the center of the rosette is indented, pop it out by adding pressure to the back center of the rosette.
 I put my rosette napkins in a little bowl and added real rose leaves. There are so many ways this pretty napkin could be displayed.
I hope you will try this easy rosette napkin when you want to add panache and sass to your table?
Remember to pin this to your Pinterest TABLESCAPE or DIY boards. You can follow me on Pinterest and see all the fabulous pins I’m finding HERE.

    I love the napkin fold and I think I can do it. Thank you. I would chose the Midnight Bloom hands down because I am a blue and white girl all the way! I am a follower and I posted the giveaway on my sidebar. Love the hot pink pop of color and the rose napkin with real rose leaves is a great accessory and clever idea.

    Hi Yvonne,
    I love the napkin fold-definitely something I can do to impress my new in-laws! Definitely would love to win the giveaway because we never received any dishware for our wedding…I love the Butterfly Allure design or Floral Silhouette set. Everything they have is so beautiful. Thanks again for the great instructions-so beautiful!

    I went to Mikasa, and my favorite pattern was the Red Berries. I have always loved Mikasa’s place settings.

    Hope I win the Giveaway…I love that pattern so much and I can just picture it so many ways. What a fun pattern.

  5. says

    Thanks so much for the how-to! This would be precious with so many table settings. And thanks for hosting such a fabulous giveaway! I think my favorite Mikasa pattern would be the French Countryside. A girl can never have too many white dishes…I think you taught us that, Miss Yvonne.LOL!

    PS I’m a devoted follower.:)

    Guess what everyone is going to be making as they set the dinner table this evening Yvonne! I love this.
    A fabulous giveaway too.
    Hope all is going well for you. We have to touch base!
    Bonne weekend,

    Well…this is easy enough that I think I can do it and will definitely try. We have company coming for dinner Saturday evening and this will be fun. They will think I am the cat’s meow. Happy Pink Saturday. ~

    That napkin rose looks more complicated than it is. I just may be able to do it, but will have to get some brightly colored napkins–I don’t think it would be as sensational with plain white ones. I would love to win the Mikasa dishes. Joyce Lane,

    Hi Yvonne,

    You may have outdone yourself with this tablescape as the Mikasa dinnerware is to die for. I currently have my eye on Mikasa’s French Countryside. Thanks for the rosette tutorial and I look forward to more of your inspirations.

    I am now following you and would love it if you could follow me as well. I just put up the badge the other day, so I am just getting started. Anyway, I love your tablescape and will be posting a link back to you Mikasa giveaway as soon as I get a chance to.
    Have a pinkishly beautiful weekend.

    Dearest Yvonne!

    What a wonderful joy it is to meet you via BLOGGER! I am not an FB expert and I am not sure I am even following all the directions to stay in contact with all of you, but I am so honored to be a part of the group. Thank you for visiting me today and my goodness, your blog is beautiful. That napkin rosette is stunning and oh I wish I could offer such beautiful crafts, but the beauty is that we all have something unique to share, and I am more of an artist with illustration and an aspiring writer. I look forward to getting to know you all! Have a lovely evening; summer is finally here for us in the midwest. Anita

    What a thoughtful thing for Mikasa to do… I love their Country Side dishes.. I hadn’t seen the set you used in this table fun and happy it is. I think anything Mikasa comes out with is great. I haven’t played with my dishes in a while, however; just finished putting a small table together on the front porch, so will post it next week. I would feel honored to win such a beautiful gift from Mikasa. Thanks for sharing the tutorial on the napkin rosette, it is darling, going to try it soon. :-))
    hugs ~lynne~

    I have been practicing the rosette napkin fold all afternoon! I LOVE it, and yes it would look good with your Milkasa GIVEAWAY china!
    Thanks for your visit and comments on The Project Table. The plum jam tastes so fresh! (I didn’t give those two small jars a hot water bath because they were so small, and I think that is what the difference is in taste.) I also make some peach glaze for pork and fish and chicken… SO yummy! I love this time of year! Its coming to a close for me tho. Arizona is getting too hot.
    Have a great week end Yvonne!
    Love, Rainey

    Oh how cute! Thanks so much for sharing your directions for the rose napkin! Love it. Also the strawberry tart is to die for! Your photos are so good. You should put your photos in a magazine. By the way what does blind bake mean?

    I love all of your posts. This napkin fold came in handy today and I was so excited when I saw it. I had just placed fresh cut pink roses on my table and had to go get some matching napkins to make your “roses”
    I have little green depression glass bowels, so I used them for the base. THANK YOU!

      Maybe giving it a try again… a little practice? Or maybe the kind of napkin you are using is too slippery.
      Give it another try with a different napkin. Hope you get a rose this time!

    • says

      Yvonne, my napkins are cotton, not slippery. I tried a different way: I actually rolled starting from the narrower part. And while I rolled, I turned the fabric a little bit, so it wouldn’t look so regular. It worked fine. Then I tried in a satiny one I have and it looks good too. Thanks for sharing and take care!

  25. says

    So I just googled simple napkin folds and clicked on a couple links but wasn’t finding anything that jumped out at me. Then I clicked on a Huffington post article, spotted a rosette fold, and look whose blog I ended up on!
