If you have read this blog for a while, you may have noticed that there is a lot English everywhere here. Some foreigners call it "decoration English". This is a paper place mat from a family restaurant called Royal Host. It says that it is "printed with soy ink" and it used "waterless printing naturally".
See the black square? If you hold a cell phone up to that, you can visit the restaurant's website. That is a Monarch butterfly sitting on a rudbeckia. There are no Monarchs here, but I have an old pot of rudbeckia. They come up every year.
The toothpicks are individually wrapped.
Look at how much effort went into making these toothpicks! Most toothpicks are like this here.
