Folding paper or cloth napkins into bow ties is a simple way to dress up any place setting. The paper bow tie napkins shown here were perfect for the golden anniversary party that Jenna of Inspired Healthy Organized and I planned. But, they could easily be used for a less formal occasion as well.
I used these black dinner napkins from Party City. The photos are pretty self-explanatory, but keep in mind that you can change the width of the bow by adjusting the size of the folds in step 3.
