If you are looking for a way to add pizzazz to your table settings whether indoor or out, I would recommend checking out H.P Designs, a company that specializes in high-end beautifully monogrammed and decorative laminated place-mats of all kinds. I know as I’ve gotten older, I’ve wanted to start collecting long lasting items for hosting and enjoying in my home. These place mats have been wonderful and I think everyone should have their own special set!
I’ve been using my set of Trellis Merian 10″x13″ placemats from H.P Designs a few months now and these place mats look as pristine and glossy as the day I first used them. Each place mat set is encased in a 10 ml. heavy, high gloss laminate and packaged in sets of 8 or 12 in a heavy-duty, see-though vinyl envelope, good for presentation and for storage.
One thing to note is that I have a very small almost round shaped table and I’ve had quite the time finding place-mats that actually would fit. The 10″x13″, a size that is designed to have the silverware on the outside, and one that fits much better around a round table, without overlapping. Check out my photo below as an example to see what I mean.
The place mats mimic traditional lacquered English hardboard mats which are sturdy and easy to clean but can be heavy and not so easy to store. The laminated place mats from H.P Designs are light yet sturdy and are ever so easy to store when not in use. Wiping these mats cleans is great because they are 100% water proof. Also if you do have a larger table, the place mats are offered in not just the 10 x 13 size but 11 x 17 as well
Designs offered are monogrammed with the initials of couple or perhaps a family name in wide array of color schemes, there are landscapes, garden party friendly illustrations, fish, shells, botanical, and those perfect for Holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas! I’m sure they would work with you for something you personally are looking for as well.
H.P Designs Monogrammed and Decorative Laminated Place mats would make a wonderful gift to give or receive. Occasions these would suit include weddings, luncheons, garden parties, baby showers, house warming gift, birthdays, holidays, and more! Products can be purchased on the companies website as well other places which are listed on the site.
