Sera Holland of Handmade By Me added these quirky new products to the homeware family- reusable placemats sets. They are available in four unique designs – two which feature her own Fly Away Birds & Pretty Proteas designs and two with a very beautiful faux plate designs. Rose has already earmarked the Delft placemats as her favourite while I quite fancy the oriental ones – perfect for a pretty dinner party table setting!
I asked Sera how on earth she came up with this funky concept, to which she replied: “The idea started when I wanted to have delft plates for the dinner at my wedding (I am obsessed!!). But I couldn’t afford to go out and just buy a whole bunch of plates, so I came up with the idea of printing the image of the plate onto paper, and then using that as a placemat so that the image would frame the plate and you would still get the effect.“
These placemats are locally made from card which has been carefully laminated so that they can be reused over again. A set of four placemats (of the dame design) can be purchased from the Handmade By Me online shop, Etsy and various other stockists.
Depending on the range’s success, Sera is also hoping to add a few children’s designs to her placemat range in the future – such fun.
