Easter Bunny Napkins

All you need to master this sweet place setting is a starched square napkin, a ribbon, and a hard-boiled egg.

Some magicians pull rabbits out of hats; others conjure them from the linen closet. Do a little sleight of hand (see our folding guide, below) and — presto, chango — you've whipped up a stylish Easter tabletop that lets guests know they're somebunny special. (Tip: These long-eared lovelies would also be adorable at a baby shower.)


The Details: Sferra Festival napkin, in Blush, $58 for 4, Canvas Home Dauville dinner plate, $35; and salad plate, in Platinum, $25,


  • Dinner napkin (we used a 20-by-20-inch dinner napkin for this origami-inspired idea, but a square lunch napkin works too, so long as it’s starched and ironed)
  • Ribbon
  • Hard-boiled egg
  • Black paint marker


  1. Fold a napkin into thirds.

  2. Fold lower corners up to meet in center, creating a paper-airplane shape.

  3. Flip over napkin so seam faces table. Fold in outer edges to meet in center.

  4. Place an egg on pointed tip, tie “ears” above it with ribbon, and nestle egg into place.
