How-to Tie Napkins with Clovers

Forgo paper napkins and plastic utensils at your St. Patrick's Day celebration...give your everyday cloth napkins a fast, refreshing facelift! First, simply fold the napkins as desired. Set silverware on top, and then tie together with a piece of twine or ribbon. Although four-leaf cloves may be as hard to find as leprechauns, English ivy is readily available. (Plus, its three-pointed shape resembles a shamrock.) So tuck in a pretty green leaf. Instead of stacking the bundles on a basket, lay them on the table for a more sophisticated look.
