You call your entertaining style casually sophisticated. Your friends call it plain lazy.
Okay, so you’re no Nigella. But don’t fret — it’s easy to kick things up a notch with Paper Table’s new collection of place mats, coasters, and napkins.
Transform Thai takeout with a backdrop of creamy floral silhouettes or present Pagliacci in style with a mismatched, bohemian set (the website has a nifty mix ’n’ match feature). Cooked up by a graphic designer and fine artist, it also makes cleanup a breeze (napkins and coasters are disposable; reusable table mats can be sponge cleaned).
What’s more, everything is recyclable or biodegradable — making the pretty products as earth friendly as they are low maintenance.
Which is something anyone will be pleased to be a party to.
