Keep a handkerchief & consider this decor

Coasters are an appealing way to add touches of decorative style to your home while also maintaining the integrity of your furniture. When you have coasters lying around, you're discreetly showing your guests that you'd like them to respect your space, but doing so in a way that's both subtle and inviting. Coasters don't have to be boring — they can highlight your style and eye for design.
Happily, you don't have to break the bank buying new coasters for your home after your old ones have gotten stained or gone missing. Instead, opt for creating your own. This makes a fun project if you're someone who likes to refresh your home decor with the changing of seasons, holidays and special occasions.
