Skiing themed 40th birthday party - Map Placemats!

Just 2 weeks till hubby's Skiing themed 40th birthday party. His actual birthday was yesterday so we celebrated with gifts, a special dinner at home and I may have had a big bunch of helium balloons delivered to him at work - teehee.
With a few props and decorations sorted to throw around on the restaurant tables for the night all sorted I wanted something a little more personalised for the guests place settings so I came up with the idea of a Ski Map Placemat with words of things in Matt's life (hobbies, job, kids names, etc) as the markings on the map.... I then threw this idea at the design legend, Samone, from Cake Ink. with a pretty please and she had a play.
Check out what Samone came up with - Awesome!!

It's probably a bit small for you to see details but there are markings like 'Amy Alps', 'Poker Peak', 'Harrison Hut' & "Father Free Fall' and the tallest mountain on the map is marked as '1972 (hubby's birth year) Miles Above Sea Level' - cool hey?

Samone has also designed some coasters

and straw discs for the table setting to match the Ski Pass Invites
I think the table is going to look fab with all these goodies put together! What do you reckon??
