I grew up using placemats on the kitchen and dining table and it’s something I still do today in my own home. Placemats are great because they keep the table from getting scratched, catch spills or drips off the plate and I like how they “define” your space at the table. I have seen paper placemats around for quite a while but decided to do a post on them after seeing some of the latest designs from Plat du Jour. Plat du Jour says they have “fresh, modern, and iconic designs for the table,” with the designs ranging from elegant mats done in antique china patterns to ones decorated with simple black silhouettes. Plat du Jour placemats are perfect for however many people you’re feeding or entertaining and when you’re done just gather them up and toss them in the recycling bin, Plat du Jour also has selections in matching cups, trays, place cards, and napkins but we’ll save those for another day. Check out some of the awesome designs here and visit the Plat du Jour website to see all their offerings, Enjoy!!!
