Maps are incredibly versatile, they provide easy ways to personalize your party decor. Decoupage votives or napkin wraps and put a meaningful map location at each place setting. Guests will enjoy trying to figure out which place is theirs!

Maps are also great for creating drink service trays. Purchase a wooden tray from the craft store. Spray with two coats of spray primer. Let thoroughly dry. Spray with 2-3 light coats of gloss spray paint. After final coat, let dry for at least 24 hours.  Line tray with chosen map. Decoupage map to bottom of tray or have glass cut to fit. Change up the maps each season depending on where your travel fantasies lead.
