Great news, local company, TableArt is changing the way we host dinner parties – and the way we clean up afterwards! Their unique range of printable, disposable placemats and table lanterns are set to make hosting a dinner party a breeze and we can’t thank them enough. These easy-to-use table decor solutions are must-have for any avid entertainer and also make for a great housewarming gift for a dear friend,

The brain-child of local designer, Kerry Abramowitz (a seasoned entertainer herself) the TableArt range offers a range of designs to suit any occasion. Use the disposable placemats to dress your table for a special lunch or dinner or bring them out for a casual braai or brunch with family and friends. Our favourite thing about the palcemats is that they allow you to decorate your table without having to spend a fortune and of course, that they help lessen the load when cleaning up! When you’re guests are done eating and saying their goodbyes all you need to do is pop them in the recycling bin – no cleaning up necessary.

That’s right Darlings, thanks to TableArt, dressing a dinner or lunch table for a special occasion or even a casual brunch or braai with friends can look stunning without spending a fortune or dedicating hours to crafting. Gone are the days of trawling Pinterest for impossibly difficult decor ideas because TableArt has introduced their stunning range of designer printed placemats and lanterns that can simply be hauled out of the cupboard and used to create the perfect setting for your meal. What’s more, because the range is made from recyclable paper it can just be disposed of when you’re done with it – no mess, no fuss! The placemats are also super versatile owing to their large size – which makes them perfect for table settings, trays or even serving areas that need a little extra coverage.

The placemats come in a range of truly amazing designs , all of which are brown from Kerry’s own creativity. Kerry says she is inspired by things around her and so decorates her creations with everything from vintage cutlery to our national flower, the Protea. The designs range from striking coloured prints featuring summer fruits and vegetables to more elegant black and white motifs of vintage tea sets, flowers and scenes of nature. The placemats can be bought in single design packs of 25 or as two complimentary design packs of 50.

In addition to the paper placemats TableArt also creates a range of paper lanterns. These come in packs of 3 and can be bought to match the placemats you have chosen. They go a long way to creating the perfect dinner party setting and help to tie your place settings together for a special occasion. These light up using a tea light candle and create a beautiful lighting effect.

The TableArt placemats are priced at R120 for a pack of 25, R185 for a pack of 50 and the lanterns are R120 for a pack of 2 and R170 for a pack of 3.
