Setting the table is an art. Choosing the perfect plates, adding matching silverware and napkins, and throwing in tasteful décor; it all comes together to create a visual feast.
So, if you want to impress your guests, simply placing your silverware on top of a napkin isn’t going to cut it. Instead, find a classy way to roll the silverware in the napkin, adding a charming touch to your table setting.
And that’s precisely what this guide will teach you – how to roll silverware in a napkin with ease and style. Let’s begin!
