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  paper 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.
