"I was really impressed with the placemat. Great quality and very functional, but quite eye catching. Kids loved it and makes adults smile"
"I chose two place mats to commemorate the love of a couple for their horse, who recently died -- too young. Now the couple can sit at their table, look down at their photos, and smile with their memories. The photos came out great. Just what I wanted! Thank you."
"It will be a fun gift for my two grandchildren as it has their photo on their own placemat."
"1st time for my daughter when she was 2 years old. 2nd time now for my niece that is only 5 months. Very durable. Still in very good condition 3 years later. Daughter is now almost 5 years. Daughters still review ABC's for her homework using this placemat."
"The photos I have used in these placemats have been very accurately reproduced. The laminate is heavy-duty & durable. I have not used my mats under anything too warm, so I don't know how they fare when exposed to heat. I have been very pleased with the placemats I have made!"
If your kitchen has bright colors with a country theme and your living room is shabby chic, what kind of decorating goes in the dining room? Dining rooms can present surprising challenges when it comes to decorating, both in terms of theme and color. These spaces are not quite the kitchen, but they are not quite part of the living room, either. Set your dining room apart with the help of custom purple placemats from Shutterfly. We have a large selection of decorative tableware that gives your dining space a look and feel all its own.
Small dining rooms, especially those with minimal natural light, can be best complemented with bright, light colors that add a feeling of space and lightness. If you have a small dining space, look for tableware in white, cream, yellow, and orange.
Many dining rooms have been traditionally decorated in richer, cool colors such as dark blue, dark red, and purple. These rich tones add elegance and ambiance to the dining experience while at the same time imparting a calming effect. These colors are good for larger spaces, especially if your dining room happens to be separate from the kitchen and living room.
Once you have your color palette selected, begin choosing the essential items that bring your dining room to life. Look for items such as:
• Purple table runners
• Seasonal centerpieces
Attractive framed prints and photos
Some people love creating entire collections of table linens in a highly coordinated manner while others like to play with a handful of colors found throughout their dining room collection. No matter which colors your choose or which way you choose to go about decorating your dining room, you can count on Shutterfly for customized items perfect for every family. Personalized placemats and other home goods make excellent gifts for grandparents, newlyweds, and first-time homeowners. Order yours today.
