Learn The Little Garden Song

Little Garden Song Lyrics

I put a little seed of hope in the ground…
And grew a little love today…
And if everyone I knew went and planted just one too,
We could grow a better future – what do you say?

What we’ll grow…
What we’ll grow…
Can you imagine what we’ll grow?
We’re gonna plant hope here and there,
We’re gonna plant it everywhere, oh!
Can you imagine what we’ll grow!

What we’ll grow…
What we’ll grow…
Can you imagine what we’ll grow?
More than enough for us to share,
No more hunger anywhere…
Can you imagine what we’ll grow?

DIY – Christmas Tree Napkin

DIY – Christmas Tree Napkin



Placing the Napkin in Your Lap    Place the napkin in your lap immediately upon seating. If there is a host or hostess, wait for him or her to take their napkin off the table and place it in his or her lap. (An exception to this rule is buffet-style meals, where you should unfold your napkin when you start eating.)

Unfolding the Napkin    Unfold your napkin in one smooth motion without “snapping” or “shaking” it open.

The size determines how you unfold a napkin in your lap.

  • Large napkins are unfolded halfway.
  • Smaller napkins are unfolded completely and cover the lap fully.

 Don’t Tuck the Napkin    Don’t tuck a napkin into your collar, between the buttons of your shirt, or in your belt.

 Using the Napkin   Use your napkin frequently during the meal to blot or pat, not wipe, your lips. Blot your lips before taking a drink of your beverage.

 Napkin Rings   If a napkin ring is present, after removing your napkin, place the ring to the top-left of the setting. At the end of the meal, grasp the napkin in the center, pull it through the ring, and lay it on the table with the point facing the center of the table.

 Temporarily Leaving the Table   When leaving the table temporarily, put your napkin on your chair. If the chair is upholstered, place the napkin soiled side up.

 Placing the Napkin at the End of the Meal   At the end of the meal :

  • The napkin is loosely folded at the end of the meal.
  • If a plate is in the center of your place setting, when leaving the table lay the napkin to the left of the plate.
  • If the center of your place setting is empty, the napkin is laid in the middle of the place setting.
  • Leave your napkin in loose folds that keep soiled parts hidden.
  • If after-dinner coffee is served at the table, the napkin remains in the lap.
