I loved the look of these water hyacinth placemats from Pottery Barn, but at $56 for a set of 4, I’d be spending $112 to outfit my table for guests. For 86% less, I found these Hometrends water hyacinth placemats at, of all places, Wal-Mart. The price is not available online as this is an in-store item. At my local store, these cost $2 a piece. TWO DOLLARS. I bought 6 this past summer, then stocked up to set our Thanksgiving table this fall. As far as I can tell, they are still available although it’s possible the price may vary.

The natural texture of these placemats works well with a variety of decor styles, and I love to use these in summer for a nautical vibe. In Kansas, I need all the help I can get making believe I am somewhere coastal!

    • I know the feeling! I never go into Wal-Mart unless it is an absolute must… and on one of these necessary-evil errands I stumbled onto these placemats. It’s enough to make me wonder about fate. Haha.
