We love to throw dinner parties and with the sunny weather upon us now, the invites will be plentiful. We're looking forward to long lazy summer days in friends€™ back yards, sipping on a chilled sauv blanc or even an ice cold beer!This year, though, we're surely shying away from typical party gifts like bottles of wine and artisan cheeses. For a great gift idea, we're all about Sobral's Pop Art Color Coasters. Made of natural lightweight resin, these handmade colorful coasters make for the perfect hostess gift. They measure approximately 4" square and are sold separately. A little home decor goes a long way in saying thanks for the invite and insures a second one, too!Where to Buy - SobralPrice - $24.00Who - Melimeli was the first to add the Pop Art Color Coasters to the Hive.
