Infuse a bit of excitement in the usual dinner routine, by dressing the table with oval placemats. Round the corners of traditional rectangular placemats to create the oblong shape. Be inspired when it comes to color by the food about to be served (or perhaps let the color of the placemats suggest the best dish for dinner).
The cylindrical spice container holding dill leaves demands its day in the sun. Let it inspire the food to be presented on oval placemats of the same shade. Equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream, with a sprinkling of dill and dash of salt, whip up a dip that’s delish with bread or fresh veg. Place the concoction in the center of a chip and dip bowl. The rounded edges mimic the shape of the mat over which appetizers are served.
Switch out green for red to inspire the serving of other dishes. The oblong shape and red hue of the right oval placemats summons to mind one amazing main course. Serve up hot dogs over placemats that match. Another food fits in flawlessly with the placemat design; whether placed in a salad or crafted into a sauce, grape tomatoes offer another succulent mealtime alternative.
Want table linens that will allow cuisine presentation to pop rather than blend in. Choose oval placemats in gray and the entree will shine as the star of the table, no matter what meal it may be. Don’t worry about gray being too simple; basketweave texturing adds interest to placemats. Pick up all the essentials for the dining room at Macy’s.
