After you’ve chosen your Christmas table linens, it’s time to practice your napkin folding skills! If you need to brush up on the art of napkin folding, here’s a step-by-step guide for the pyramid fold:

1. Place a square napkin on the table like a diamond.

2. Fold it in half upward to make a triangle.

3. Fold the left corner up to meet the top corner.

4. Fold the right corner up to meet the top corner.

5. Turn the napkin over.

6. Fold the napkin in half by bringing the bottom point up to meet the top. This should form a triangle.

7. Fold the napkin along the center seam to form a pyramid.

Lighthouse Decor in Honor of National Lighthouse Day: August 7, 2015

Are you mesmerized by the prismatic beauty of the Fresnel lens? Did you visit Cape Hatteras from afar during the “Move of the Millennium,” look out over the craggy cliffs of Split Rock, or climb the winding steps to the top of the Currituck? If so, you’re likely all in favor of celebrating National Lighthouse Day!

What a welcome sight (or sound) the lighthouse must have been for weary seafarers, especially during merciless storms, unrelenting fog, or the gloomy shroud of night. Even if you’re entirely landlocked, you can bring this beacon of light to your home and enjoy its comforting presence.

If you’re looking to truly illuminate your home with lighthouse decor, cast your sights on the Light of Hope Lamp. This accent features a pale lighthouse in weather-worn white, topped by a burlap shade. Ready to shed light on any surface that needs it, this lighthouse lamp is dappled with shells and life preservers. For just an accent glow, display the Seaside Lighthouse Lighted Canvas on your wall. Let the LED beacon and quaint scene suffuse any area with a sense of calm.
