table setting placemats

I love this teach (and learn) etiquette with paper placemats. Don’t know where the dinner fork goes? These placemats will tell you.

I  like the idea behind this Place Setting Placemat made by Donkey Products. It acts as a detailed blueprint putting pieces in their proper place. The clean lines and and modern design make for a great conversation piece and educational tool.

So what if the china is packed away and the silverware is unpolished. Tear some of these ┬ápaper placemats from their tablet, slip them around the table and voila! You’ve gone from ho-hum to haute cuisine in an instant. By Cake Vintage.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a Table Setting Guide series.
