changeable placemats for the changeable mood

Napkin ring

I got inspired recently by a magazine article where I saw local maps overlaid by a piece of plexi glass (found precut at any hardware store) used as placemats. This way you can switch out the maps for anything to fit the occasion. The placemat: For a spring brunch, I used cute blue gingham paper as the background paper. I then traced the plate, wine glass and utensils out on a contrasting brown paper. On the brown paper plate, write out the menu for the lunch so it gives the guest something to read before the main course is served.

Supplies to make place mat

The napkin ring: Take a paper towel roll and cut it into inch wide rings. I covered mine with this new colorful tape that they sell at craft stores. You can use just plain paper or fabric to cover also. For the centerpiece: going with the blue theme I droped my potted hydrangea plant in the center of the table.
