Buffet Place Setting

Martha Stewart Living, June 2002

Bundle place mat, napkin, and utensils in one convenient roll. Begin with a reed mat and 18 inches of 3/4-inch-wide grosgrain ribbon. Thread ribbon from below, between first and second reeds from right (leaving 6-inch overhang). Thread down a few reeds away. Bring up about 1 1/4 inches from right edge. Loop knife handle; pass through mat. Do the same over fork and napkin. Roll up mat from left. Tie ribbon bow around roll, and trim.

    Iliene this better for picnic use than that oilcloth pouch thing for holding flatware and napkin shown previously.

    I love this idea and would like to do it for an upcoming party I'm having. But .... where can I buy the reed mats for a decent price? I need a large number of them. Any suggestions?
