It's that time of year again, Secret Santas, White Elephant Parties, and my book club's annual Holiday meeting and gift exchange! I mixed it up this year, and decided to make my gift and went with these placemats. I used Alissa Haight Carlton's pattern - http://www.handmadebyalissa.com/placemat-pattern/ and changed up the colors. The red, linen and cream are holiday inspired, but still can be used year round.

We had our dinner and meeting last night at Kate's and do a "White Elephant" style gift picking with stealing up to 2 times. My bag wasn't chosen till the almost end, and I think Coral was happy to receive them. I hope she and her family enjoy them through the holiday season and beyond!
