Watercolor-Painted Marble Tile Place Cards
Set a personalized place for each guest at the table. All you need are two things: craft paint and small tiles, which are blended with summery colors of soft pink, peach, lilac, coral and white.

This idea comes from our contributor Debi Traub. They were displayed as a personalized decoration for her Mother's Day Charcuterie Party. "I made DIY place cards with 2-by-4-inch marble tiles that were left over from my kitchen renovation," she says. "I painted them with watercolor craft paints to give them a wispy effect. This was super easy to do, and your guests can take them home as a keepsake from the celebration."
