These were made for my husband's secretary for a holiday gift (she had been asking for some since the moment she saw a set of them). I gave her a wine bottle kit (opener, wine charms and bottle chiller - bought at TJ Maxx) as well as a nice bottle of wine. These tiles are so simple - but make a great gift. I always do the same colors (a pink, yellow, blue and purple) - I have made them as teacher gifts, secret santa gifts....they are always a "crowd" pleaser. I can whip off a set in about 10 minutes.... These are a great demo (I learned with this set for tiles). To "spice it up" - cover the hydrangia and stamp with stazon a background with french script. Very classy!

Well - if the glasses are REALLY really sweating - They don't absorb them - but they work well - especially for preventing damage to the tables. I just use a glossy sealant which I purchased at HD. Funny story - sent DH to HD once - he came back with silver instead of clear glossy - ruined two sets of tiles....UGH!
