Falling into Festivities with Black and White Coasters

There is nothing better than crisp fall air, crunching leaves, and a cup of apple cider to keep you warm on a fall day - especially when it's on a coaster! We're excited that fall is here and we thought we'd share some of our favorite designs and drinks to put on them that help tie any room together during this season of transition

These "Scaffold" Coasters by David Bellona are a great multi-season way to pull together those last warm moments of summer with the crisp tastes of fall.

These Black and White Stripes are just asking for a glass of bourbon by the fire. Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you can't be warm inside!"Meeting Notes 2" Coasters

Vintage Beer Coasters: Fun Facts!

We thought we'd indulge in a little throwback this Thursday and share some fun facts about coasters past.

Did you know paper-pulp beer coasters were originally patented by Robert Smith of Dresden, Germany in 1892? Smith wanted to create something disposable that would absorb condensation and spillage from a glass of beer. As time went on the advertising potential of these humble 'bar mats' was recognized, and they evolved into the mini-billboards we're so familiar with today.

Check out these great shots of vintage beer coasters from Coltera's Flickr stream.

According to All About Beer, the word 'coaster' has its origins in an old school, wagon-like device barkeeps used to use to ferry beverages to customers along a bar. The so-called 'coaster' was prone to accidents and spills however, and fell out of popularity.

Fun as a mini-wagon that transports beer sounds, we're fans of the stationary, absorbent version of the coaster. Feeling inspired? Why not create your own.
