Rose Napkins

 

When you imagine a romantic dinner for two, crumbs never sully your partner’s face. Give your fantasy a practical twist with napkins folded into a rose-inspired arrangement. The “flower” and “leaves” are tucked into a tumbler and set at each place setting. Don’t worry about making the corners meet perfectly—a little unevenness looks more natural.

To form leaves:
1. Fold a square green napkin in half along the diagonal.
2. Fold it in half again along the long edge.
3. Fold it once more in half along the long edge.

To form flower:
1. Use a square napkin of any color. Fold the cloth in half along the diagonal. Place it on your work surface so that the longest side of the resulting triangle is at the top. Take the corner opposite the longest side and fold it up so that it just extends over the top. The top and bottom edges should be parallel.

2. Fold the bottom edge up so that it falls just short of the top edge. Begin rolling the napkin from one end. Guide and adjust the cloth as you roll to give it an even shape.

3. Slip the completed flower between the upper and lower halves of the leaves, and arrange in the glass.

Frozen Vodka

wed_sf98_goodthings_08_l.jpg

A bottle of icy vodka makes a dramatic bar decoration when it's encased in a frozen layer of colorful
flowers and fruit.

 
Place a full bottle into a fully opened cardboard half-gallon milk carton. Insert flowers or thinly sliced fruit
 (we've used nasturtiums, lemons, and limes) around the bottle, filling one third of the carton. Pour water into
 the container, just covering the fruit and flowers. Place the carton upright in the freezer. When the liquid is
completely frozen, add another layer of fruit and very cold water, and freeze. Repeat, filling and freezing a
 third of the carton at a time, which prevents all the fruit and flowers from floating to the top until the water
 reaches the bottle's neck. Remove from the freezer when it's time to serve the vodka: Cut away the milk
carton with a utility knife; wrap a dinner napkin around the bottle's base, and serve the vodka with
slices of lemon zest tied in knots.
