Y'all Behave Placemats

Y'all Behave Placemats

Wish you had something to help you remember the placement of the soup spoon or butter knife? Well your wishes have come true!

As part of the online guide to manners, y'all behave, artist Sarah Foley has created a new set of informative and fun placemats designed to help assist you in setting the table. Each placemat gives you "8 Ways To Act Right" - including proper utensil placement. $30 for a pad of 20 placemats.

I have never had to rely on a placemat. I was taught the word fork has four letters and so does the word left, so the fork goes on the left. The words spoon and knife have five letters and so does the word right, so they go on the right. You work from the outside in. The stuff on the top is for final courses.

I wish they came in a smaller pack- I really don't need thirty of them. Do any other left handers out there seem to have particular trouble with place settings? It seems that my instinct is always the complete opposite- I'll try to set the table in a way that makes sense, and my mother will just like at me, like "wtf?". I always thought it was because I was left handed, and therefore naturally wanted everything on the other side. Or am I just a moron?

I need this! I had a dinner party for Father's Day and had to look up place settings on the internet!

These are great! Silverware placement I don't have a problem with, but I'm sometimes unsure about bread plate/glass placement. Then, I have to wait until a neighbor drinks first! :rotfl:

Reminds me of the movie, "Pretty Woman". I tend to just go from the inside out. I am probably all wrong, but no one has ever corrected me. I guess they would expect that from someone like me.

I guess you'd use these in practice with your family and then for the important and classy dinners, you'd be a pro at setting the table?

Cute! I love this idea. Although, these days, chewing with your mouth closed and tearing off a bite sized piece of bread isntead of shoving the whole thing in your mouth and more important lessons.

this would be a good thing to teach my boyfriend that the silverware has an actualy place, and doesn't just go anywhere, at any angle, as long as it makes it on the placemat!

Those are cute. And you 20 of them, good deal.

This is so cute! It would be really fun for a big dinner with a bunch of friends, or girl's night at the casa :) $30 for 20 place mats isn't bad at all, either.
