you could try to find little plate stands to put them on. but i can imagine that could get a little pricey and then you’d have 120 plate stands left over afterwards.

Try filling a shallow box with gravel, rice, coffee beans or anything like that. Then stick them in. Hopefully they could stay at an angle,but you’d have to test it to be sure if it would work.

But as a side note, I think just laying them out on a table will be fine.

@KristyMartin:  I foudn this site but you have to contact them to find pricing.  Its wholesale but could still be costly.  At least you dont need large ones for coasters.  It will take a large table to display them though…http://www.tripar.com/products.php?trID=&search=wooden+stands


The only other idea i was mulling over was getting a long board.. like a two by four and having someone cut a groove into it?  That way you could display them in rows like that?  I’m not sure…

Something like this would be super pretty! You could put anything you want in the middle 🙂

@nl I love the idea of a long board with a groove to hold them in a little neat line (or even two grooves for two rows)!  Depends on the venue though – obviously it might look out of place in a formal setting.  The box with rocks/marbles would work great too!

Each of these holds four. A box of 10 is $18.56 so you could be done for less than $60. I just don’t know if you’d really be able to see the three behind the front one. Hmm… maybe you could try to group families together or do them alphabetically?

@KristyMartin:  You could use a piece of lumber- 3×3″ or 4×4″. Have the lumber yard cut it lengthwise on a 45 degree angle. Paint to match your decor.

You could build a frame like this and place the angled pieces inside for some stability.

Place flat on the table and lean the coasters up against the angled side.

I couldn’t find a pic of a piece of lumber cut like that but the end result would be that you could display your tiles like the spice drawer shown below.
