Rosette
1. Lay a square napkin on the table the wrong side up (if it is wrinkled, don’t worry about ironing it)
2. Fold into a triangle by taking on corner and bringing it up to meet the opposite corner. Have the folded edge of the triangle closest to you
3. Starting with the edge closest to you, roll the entire napkin up
4. Start with one end and roll the napkin around itself until you reach the end
5. Tuck the end of the napkin underneath and into one of the folds in the bottom of the napkin
6. If the centre of the rose is indented, carefully pop it out by adding pressure to the back of the rosette
7. Use a bowl and a real leaf to display your beautiful napkins!
