A Pretty Table and Napkin Folding Technique

It's been raining like crazy here in Los Angeles the last two days, it's nice for a change.  Everything seems to slow down when it rains.  Last Friday I took a trip to Disneyland with some very special friends and since we were first having breakfast at my house, I decided to have a nice little breakfast set up for my friends. 

I recently read a blog post that I ***LOVED*** I'll share the link with you below. 
Miriam from   Be Book Bound discovered a way to fold her dinner napkins into an envelope! I loved the idea so much that I wanted to use her technique for my napkins, unfortunately, I couldn't find the link to her blog and I wound up folding my napkins like a little purse, they still turned out pretty cute.  I'll show you my technique down towards the bottom, here's the napkin:

Here's the Micky Mouse breakfast:

and here's the table all dressed up and ready for my friends:

and now on to the "purse folded napkin".  You will need two napkins for this.  First, fold one napkin in half
place second napkin on top

fold corner of second napkin
next, place flatware inside

fold sides over

last, fold top corner down

Here's Miriams lovely napkin, you can catch her technique at her blog:

Happy Napkin Folding!
