Plat du Jour Paper Placemats

Why It's Cool: Dress up your table without making a commitment!

Placemats are an investment, not only of money, but of storage space. So you pick a few designs that you like, and then use them over and over and over again. Every once in awhile your table just cries out for a change, but you don’t want to invest much money or space in a transitory design.

Enter Plat du Jour Paper Placemats…

These are large (over 17” X 11”), heavy (60 lb), beautiful recycled paper placemats that will brighten any table.

We have 2 designs. The first, Grass Citron, is a lovely pastoral design of waving green grass and is perfect for an al fresco meal or anytime you want the beauty of a spring day outdoors.

The second design, If you don’t have anything nice to say… Sit by me!, is a favorite saying that I had mistakenly attributed to Dorothy Parker. On further research, I found that a similar  sentiment was embroidered on a pillow owned by Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Teddy Roosevelt’s iconoclastic daughter, who was reported to have “the sharpest wit in Washington”. (And you thought you learned only about kitchen tools on this site!)

So have a little fun with your dinner table, and try these Cool Tools!
