Pass the paper, please.

When the weather is nice and the cooking is easy, the last thing you want to think about is hours of washing and ironing your fancy table linens. So pop over to your pantry and grab these paper placemats—they’re easy to set up (just peel one off the pad), and easy to clean (crumple up and toss). And can we talk about how darn cute they are? Hester & Cook’s playful designs are a fun, low-commitment way to bring some color to the table—try the sorbet stripes today, and the gold confetti tomorrow (match ‘em with a table runner, too). And since they’re made of recycled paper, you don’t have to feel guilty about 1 or 2-time use: No trees were harmed in the making of these placemats.
