Don't get me wrong. I'm not anti-placemat. I can see that they are handy, especially when you are feeding children when the easy-to-wipe plastic mats become almost a necessity. And I can appreciate how a well-coordinated placemat can pull a table together and make it feel more dressy.
It's just never been the kind of thing I've gravitated towards, despite drawers full of cloth napkins and tablecloths. So I'm curious. Do you use placemats and if so, why?
