This comprehensive do-it-yourself guide is fun and demonstrates in great detail the art of easy and elegant napkin folding. The author also provides festive, imaginative and inexpensive table decor ideas, featuring everything from favours and linens to centrepieces - she even shows readers how to create the perfect buffet setting. From the casual to the elegant, more than 250 full-colour photographs illustrate napkin folding how-tos and place-setting ideas. All the projects are graded for beginners, intermediates or advanced, providing a myriad of ways for all readers to express their creativity. The book is divided into four parts: - Part one features 100 napkin folding ideas and dozens of suggestions for incorporating napkins into place settings and decor. - Part two includes table-setting ideas that enhance various menus - everything from a garden brunch to location parties such as a beach or mountaintop. Diagrams and photos clearly illustrate table settings in detail. - Part three provides ideas for centrepieces and favours. There are dozens of classic centrepiece designs as well as both non-floral and edible centrepieces. The author also includes party favour ideas for all occasions, from fun to romantic to kid's parties. - Part four shows readers how to incorporate decor ideas (props, linens, flowers) into an event. Whether planning a buffet, an hors d'oeuvre station or a barbecue, it's all covered in easy-to-follow detail.

5.0 von 5 Sternen BEYOND CREATIVE TABLE SETTINGS! 5. November 2010
Von Elizabeth TenHouten - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Denise Vivaldo has really outdone herself creatively, with this treasure of stunning settings. Napkin folding is a large part of setting the perfect table...and Denise "The Napkin Whisperer" Vivaldo walks you through simple steps to follow in order to create the napkin design that will showcase your table setting. There are so many gorgeous photos that make it fun and easy to follow. My favorite is the peacock setting, for champagne and caviar parties. Who ever thought that a napkin could emulate a peacock? Denise did. I also adore the Chinese Banquet table setting--what a fun way to have Chinese take-out! In addition to all of these brilliant ways to make entertaining beautiful, the author has put her years of culinary expertise to work, and offered delicious recipes to accommodate the table settings.
This book is a must for anyone who wants to add that special touch to their dining with a wildly impressive table setting.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's Grrrrrrreat! 10. November 2010
Von Alycia Nichols - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent guide for napkin folding. The folds are put into 3 categories - easy, intermediate, and advanced - which makes it more palatable and less intimidating. No surprise mind-boggling folds until you feel ready! The technique photos are vivid and easy to follow. I was not as thrilled with the "table settings" portion of the book. Not what I expected. I thought the book would offer entire table settings, but instead there were individual place settings and party ideas. Not horrible...just unexpected on my end. All in all, worth the money for the skills developed after reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fold My Napkin 9. November 2010
Von George Geary - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Obviously Virginia knows nothing about the publishing process. All of her concerns about this book may be valid in her eyes and expectations in what she thought the book would be. But all of her "gripes" and "rants" are really directed to the publisher, art department and photographer not the author.. That's what's so sad as we as authors are the only ones with our names on the cover while we had no say in what picture will be used or how many of what will be shown. We all do the best we can in what is given us. Denise does exceptional work in the parameters set by the publishing house. As do all of us authors. Maybe the book should have been titled Napkin Folds.. But again.. the publisher names all books. Anyone surprised?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good but could be better 10. April 2011
Von Swamp Poodle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I would like to give this book 5 stars because the instructions for the napkin folds are written clearly and the accompanying photographs are clear.

However, my one gripe with the book is the orientation of the accompanying photographs. The photos are placed as if you (the reader) are watching someone seated across from you, rather than watching someone seated to the right or left of you. (If you look closely, the hands in the photos are at the top not at the bottom. ) In other words, the photos are upside-down from the reader's perspective. Therefore it becomes confusing when the instructions say to "fold left flap over to the right flap, keeping the point towards you" and the picture shows the opposite and inverted.

Luckily I can read print that is upside down and backwards. But for those who cannot do that, the choice is to either constantly turn the book upside down or to completely ignore the photos.

Hopefully, the publisher will take note of this for future instructional books.
