DIY :: Reusable Table Setting Placemats

Hooray! Just a couple of days to go until Christmas! Though it is the most exciting time of the year, it can get fairly hectic, don’t you agree? I’ve got a great DIY to help you simplify your table setting and easy clean up too!

This year, Kyle and I are hosting an intimate dinner at our house on Christmas Day. When the two of us eat at home, we are super casual and rarely properly set the table, therefore I am so thrilled that I finally get the chance to ‘formally’ set the dining table. Instead of running out to to purchase a set of matching placemats, coasters, and name cards, I decided to design a fun faux table setting placemat accompanied with matching coasters and place cards.

Guess what? I also laminated these DIY table setting placemats so that they can be personalized and reused for my next dinner parties to come!

    Your placesetting diagram is incorrect. The knife goes next to the plate with the blade side closest to the place. You should fix this diagram
