  • If this is the first article you are reading about dinner table décor or wedding table décor then may we suggest that you read the Table setting guidelines article. In this article we have discussed how to choose the table cloth to complement the rest of the stuff you will be using around your dinner table.

  • Tablemats or placemats are important and define the sitting eating area for the individual; there are plenty of beautiful table mats in the market, ranging from embroidered cloth mats to straw mats. But if you want to create inexpensive or imaginative and unique table settings for guests and family members to remember your special lunches and dinners, then read on...

  • Use old silk scarves fold them into four or more and cut! Remember each mat must be at least 7’’ by 9’’ in size).  If you have spare curtain fabric or bored of a bed sheet then why not cut out placemats from it in rectangle or oval shapes, use a zigzag edged scissors to avoid sewing, or use glue to fold unsown edges.

  • For an even more artistic, why not use tracing paper, make sure it’s a reasonable thickness, trace a simple pattern, mehndi style even and use that. Make sure the table cloth that you use underneath is plain and simple so that the tracing table mat can stand out.



















    If you are feeling adventurous and have a jungle nearby, or access to large fern or banana leaves then use leaves as placemats, keep your table cloth and tableware simple and match a floral arrangement as well to compliment.


















    If you have access to plain glass that is in similar size of placemats, you can use these as a cover, and place leaves, dried flowers, photographs or other delicate artistic materials underneath the glass. Remember though place the materials in such a way that it can be seen and not hidden under plates.

  • Placemats don’t have to rectangle!



















    For those who have round tables, placemats in this shape (see below) make it very easy to lay out tables.






    To get a homier look, go for cotton (more practical for frequent use), or crochet.





    Jazzy, fun, young look go for vibrant colours, with bright strips, or for children’s dinner get cartoon character cut outs and place that underneath cutlery.




    Points to remember:

    • Make sure you iron out any creases before laying out cloth placemats.
    • Use a little double sided tape or blue-tack to make placemats stay in one place.
    • The colour of placemat should contrast the tablecloth or table surface.
    • Either wash or wipe clean your placemats, or dispose if dirt does to wash off.
    • If space is an issue with placemats then you might consider opting out and elaborate elsewhere, use runners instead.
    • Placemats don’t have to be expensive.
    • Be creative and imaginative!

  • So when you’re out buying placemats look out for these fabrics and materials: cotton, silk, linen, bed linen fabric, pillow case, curtain fabric, wall paper, vinyl, printed paper (found in craft shops) or even mirrors!
