One of my friends is getting married in a few weeks, and I was at a loss for what to make her as a gift. While I know the bride pretty well, I have never really got a handle on her taste, which always seemed pretty random to me. And I've only met the groom once, so that was no help. I looked at their registries for inspiration, thinking I might do what I've done before, and make placemats to go with their chosen dinnerware. Hmmm. Plain white dinnerware. Great. So I looked at their bed linen, and saw they had chosen greys with a very simple floral motif. That was the hook I needed, and the above placemats were born.
I hope they like them!
