Holidays call for a beautiful table…and linens are part of the set up.
Over the years, I've collected various linens, but every now and then you need to freshen things up. When I saw this photo above, I knew that I had to have these Parentesi placemats by La Gallina Matta of Italy. You see, I already own the Bernadaud Grenadiers china in the photo.
I got even more excited when I learned that they are made of 100% linen, hand cut and then coated with a special formula that makes them resistant to spills. Childproof!!! Or, adult-proof depending on the guests.
You can monogram them, which I may do, but I love them just plain. They are available here in an array of colors! Priced at $25/placemat.
Now, that the table is set, it's time for cocktail hour. Whether you like eggnog, hot apple cider or a more potent toddy, they all taste better with a linen cocktail napkin. I've just ordered these Dancing Santas for a few gifts…and I might have to keep a set for me! Available here for $30/set of 4.
Let's get the parties started!!!
