What do you think of these placemats? *update*

They were on sale 1.99 a piece. I have a smaller table, but 6 seats and rectangular placemats end up overlapping. I have circular placemats that I like, but they're brown and kind of wintery. I want to brighten things up for the spring. I'm not in love with these mats- I liked the color and thought they would pop, but they kind of blend in with the dark table.

I don't know about the square shape either..

I was thinking they might look nice with a yellow tablecloth.

I need help. I'm going to go shopping in a little bit and I might return them. I need some ideas so if you decorate your dining table post a picture please!



***Update***
I posted a new picture on page 5. I borrowed a gold tablecloth from my mom and put some beer caps we've been collecting in some vases. Voila. I'm happy.

I would like them more if they were green. Not bad though.

ETA I'm also on the fence about the square shape.
