Tip From the Ribbon Box: Ribbon Wrapped Napkins

A few weeks ago I staffed a baby shower with Tywana Tyler of Events Simply Beautiful. The guest count was around 60 people, and since guests would be coming and going, a buffet was set up so guests could come and go as they please, eating, chatting, mingling, and wishing the soon to be mom and dad well.  Here’s a quick little how to on the napkin presentation. Quick, easy, and can be done ahead of time!

As you’ll see below, these ribbon wrapped napkins not only are purposeful, but give a little pop of interest to the tables. Enjoy!

Materials needed:

1 pair of fabric scissors, or a nice, sharp pair that will cut cleanly through ribbon, and not fray.

1 strand of ribbon, approx 8-10 inches long (as you can see from the photo above, we used both wide and narrow width ribbon.

*If you plan to make bows, I suggest using the narrow ribbon for a cleaner, more proportioned look.


Place your napkin, already folded into a square (opening should be the bottom point), with a peice of ribbon behind it.

Attach the name tag (these were the parents names and a logo used throughout the event stationery- if doing assigned seating, these could be your place cards on the guest  tables alerting guests to their seating assignments)

Pull the ribbon tighter, keeping the favor tag visible. The napkin will easily roll up. Secure by tying a bow


 Trim the bow with scissors to even out, and voila!



The end result is simple, and lovely!

Congratulations to Tywana on a job well done!
