I love buying things to decorate my kitchen and dining room table, but I've never seemed to acquire any placemats during all of my homegood shopping. I guess I either haven't looked hard enough or I can't find a pattern that seems fitting. Tonight I'm having a little dinner party and while placing my plates, I noticed that my table looked bare...unfinished. One of the perks of going to art school is that you end up with pads and pads of newsprint and bond paper, so I dug through my slightly dusty pile in the corner, ripped out some place setting sized sheets, grabbed a pen, and began to draw. Since I don't have the complete formal setting needed for a true classic dinner party, I felt an outline of the correct placement would suffice. Maybe it says "one day this place will be filled with gorgeous silver utensils, but for now you'll have to deal with Target's finest", but I think the stark mats mixed with the traditional floral pattern of the plates provides just enough humor.
