4 Easy Steps to a Father’s Day Napkin Fold

Did you know that Father’s Day was first celebrated in Spokane, Washington at a YMCA on June 19, 1910?

Established as a complement to Mother’s Day to celebrate fatherhood and male parenting, celebrations of Father’s Day were put on a decade long hiatus in the 1920s but resumed in the 1930s. From then on, the unofficial acknowledgment of fathers continued and expanded nationwide until President Richard Nixon made it a permanent national holiday in 1972. As you celebrate the day, impress your restaurant patrons, family, and loved ones with this Father’s Day inspired napkin fold – the Bow Tie!
1) Fold each half of the napkin to meet in the middle.
2) Fold the bottom half to the top half to make one long strip.
3) Fold the ends in and overlap them an inch.
4) Tie a piece of ribbon around the middle and turn the bow around.
