Planning a summer party? You don't have to spend big bucks on fancy centerpieces and place settings. Reuse what you have (and go easy on the earth!) with these environmentally friendly party ideas and simple decor projects from home style expert Danny Seo.
Whether the cause is a gust of wind or clumsy hands, terra-cotta pots can break, but that's no reason to throw them away. Recycle the shards into charming ID tags for your next party. They look great on a cheese plate, letting guests know what all the gourmet treats are. Either use a permanent marker to write directly on the shards or get crafty with a set of alphabet stamps and a permanent-ink pad, like I did here. Shards can also be used as place cards on tables.
