Napkins come in different sizes depending on the occasion, for a formal dinner, they will have to be at least 22″ (56 cm) square, they then decrease in size for buffet parties, lunches, afternoon tea, etc.
However, unless you have to stick to protocol for whatever reason, you can make your napkins any size you want, especially if you are entertaining friends and family who have come to enjoy your delicious food and delightful company.
Here is a video where I will be showing you how I made my napkins creating perfect mitered corners. For the tutorial I made small napkins for daily use using a colourful fabric, but what ever your choice is, I recommend to use an absorbent linen or cotton material.
