Hot drinks in cups often damage furniture, leaving unattractive rings on the surface. So, you need coasters. Crocheted items make great coasters, because they insulate the hot cup and are very attractive in themselves, and can make a wonderful thematic decoration for the table. For example, these coffee-themed coasters are a great match for your after-brunch Sunday coffee, each one in a different color, so everyone knows their place 😉 Links to free patterns are under the pictures.
