We saw these at Michaels Craft Store the other day and we thought they would make great table numbers for a wedding or a party. They were made by Ashland and cost $6.99. They could be left the way they are or you could put some colored marbles in them or fill them with sand and add some flowers.
Play up a beach theme with these petite chaise lounges and parasols. Print guest names and table numbers onto decorative paper, and then cut out rectangles and curve them into lounge chairs (pull the paper back and forth along the edge of a table while holding it taut to achieve the wave). Then arrange them in a sand-filled tray, and adorn each seat with a bright umbrella.
We helped a friend do these for her wedding and they were super easy and turned out adorable. Thanks Martha Stewart for sharing this great idea.
