It is July, and my soft spot for little fishies is back. I cant help being a sucker for this summer theme, so when I saw this place mat, I wanted to call up a group of friends, make mango salsa, grill salmon, and have a feast on my patio. Now, not just any guppy can get me going like this—it’s the simple school pattern, the net-like stitching, and the perfect blue cotton that got me hooked. Zodax’s mats have surpassed the kitsch and elevated the Blue Water Fish placemat to this summers essential.
