Hostess Gift: Table Setting Placemats
I just bought the cutest paper placements by Cake Vintage over the weekend. I got them as a hostess gift, but I really want to keep them for myself. The placemats come in a large pad of 50 pages (just like the construction paper pads) featuring the hand-drawn illustration of a classic (vintage!) place setting. I love their fun tongue-in-cheek elegance: feel like you totally belong to the born-with-a-silver- spoon-in-your-mouth set while serving mac ‘n cheese. I’m told that kids love drawing on these too, so this is actually a great gift idea for the whole family. The pad of 50 placemats sells for $20 can be purchased directly on the Cake Vintage site here.
I love their kitchen towel too. It is hand-screened with same vintage style illustration of a fork, knife and spoon. This would also make for an elegant hostess gift, especially if you wrap something in it. Like a bottle of wine, perhaps? See it here.
