47 Daring Dish Coasters

From Seed-Like Beer Mats to Geeky Gaming Tableware

— September 23, 2012 — Eco
Entertaining guests is never easy, but after placing these daring dish mats on the table your job will become that much easier. These designs offer easy conversation starters for all party-goers who enjoy forward-thinking mug mats.

Those who had an extreme obsession with games such as Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog will automatically be drawn to the gamer-themed coasters. Users can even pretend like they're young again and think up a make-shift game with these products. Other themes are more on the naughty side, including drug-themed coasters that look as though rails of cocaine have been lined up, ready to take. While your friends might think this amusing, avoid having these daring dish coasters out when your girlfriend's parents are over at all costs.
