|Has anyone else heard of Kitchen Papers? Last year I bought some wonderful doilies from them. Then yesterday I came across something i love even more. It is a big roll of craft paper with silverware printed on it. You cut it to length, like a bistro!
I imagine there are a lot of space where it doesn't work, but in my casual dining room I love it.
Here is a link that might be useful: cool stuff
|Very cool product. I'll have to check out that site.|
|The craft paper is really unique, but I like the silver pumpkin and hydrangeas even more! Table is so inviting!|
|I KNEW you had good taste - you and I have the same china pattern !!|
|Love it and your chairs are fabulous.|
|Far out! I can see all sorts of uses for that paper. And the young grand-kids would love it with some crayons on the table I set for them. Thanks for sharing!|
|Fun! Love it. Beautifully set table!|
|I love the runner and your table! I'm buying the runner or the blueprint placemats for DD.|
|bb- aren't they so cool? I love the ones with paper pearls, too! |
Thanks, Ladeeda and Dee (table and chairs I bought from PO), Francoise and Fun2
DLM - Wedgwood countryware? I think food looks best on white, don't you?
Outside -- for young'ns, i d use plain ole craft paper!
Thanks Suja, pumpkin is mercury glass from PB and hydrangeas are from my gardens
I love the look so much, too bad there are only two kinds. I think I will amke my own for the holidays...?
|Totally love this table and your dining room! I'm looking for white dishes now (for a new to me recently purchased vacation condo) and I think this runner just rocks! Thanks so very much.|
|So cute! Ever the one to want to hang anything cool on my walls, I can envision the placemats and napkins framed and hung!|
|I love that! I'm thinking of using those wraps in visual merchandising. What a great back drop if they are hung behind a display. Thanks mtnrdredux!|
|Love that paper and the cooler alternatives to white doilies.... I have been using paper leaves for cheese trays for years but have had to rely on doilies for everything else :-) |
I think you will like the site Fancy Flours I have linked to below, much cool kitchen stuff but fair warning, the site is a maze! Look at the small vintage Christmas postcard dishes--- and everything else. I've ordered lots of fun paper goods for parties from the site.

|Love that printed craft paper! Creates a very nice tablescape. Makes me want to trade my oval table for a rectangular one. |
Plain craft paper or unprinted newsprint would be fun to use and let the kids decorate it. Could also be stenciled to go with decor or dishes. I have a roll of printed florist wrap that might work as well - thanks for the idea!
|Broken record here - I love it! |
My dining room is a little more formal, and I love using things like this under the good china, with the good silver, to yank it back to comfort.
|Totally love it. I'm getting a table roll and placemats.|
|Checking it out now! Thanks!|
|Thanks for sharing this. I am sure I will place an order after I digest the rest of the website and consider some Christmas gifts.|
|First let me say I adore everything about your casual dining room and your tablescape looks amazing. I love the paper. I also love the idea of using the flourish pattern for gift wrapping. 32" x 50', that's feet (as in a foot). That would last me for the next 5 years at least. Thanks for sharing your picture and the link.|
|Thanks, Cam, I love my DR. It is the only room in the house that is largely untouched (we painted the window muntins Hampshire Grey), and we even bought the table and chairs from the PO, as our old set was way too formal. I've always wanted a DR with a wall of windows and brick floor. Ok, I got slate! But we love this room and have all dinners there, unlike our old DR! |
It might be a tad thick for wrapping paper?
TheFoxesPad --- i thought of you when i saw this -- it is so you imho!
Bronwynsmom, I so agree about that fun pairing of rustic w formal. And, oddly, ive always preferred food on a white plate, but the kraft paper further emphasizes the beauty of the food (we had a farm to fork dinner party... so lots of gorgeous food).
KSWL - I really like doilies, but these make me feel a bit more hip, lol. I love the peonies, will need to get those next. Thanks for the site. I never knew about edible wafers before. My girls will go crazy I know.
Thanks everyone else, glad you liked it.
|Thanks for the tip, they showed it used as wrapping paper and it looked nice but if it wouldn't fold well it might not be worth the effort.|
|Nothing formal in our home, I love it, thanks for sharing!|
