Umbrellas for Your Drinks

These are so cute and super easy.  I saw them on the Martha Stewart site and had to try them.  She calls them Drink Parasols.  I just call them Those Adorable Little Umbrellas for your Drink.  :)

Martha's site has a download so you can print out the colourful umbrellas shown above.  You just print, cut out the circles, cut a little slit in each umbrella, fold into a cone and glue or tape. Poke a skewer through the end and you've got a nice drink umbrella or centrepiece component.

You could do this with scrapbook paper to get an entirely different feel to the umbrellas or even cardstock that you embellish.  Endless possibilities.  :)  All of them - too cute.

Ha ha ha... Mindy's funny... I need a pool boy and a pool too!

I love these umbrella sticks! I like that they can be large scale- that always makes such a statement.

Well I think all the ladies agree on the pool/pool boy front. :)

These are so adorable and the idea can be used to decorate for many different occasions!

(Wouldn't turn down the pool boy, either!)

Thanks for sharing,
