I have a dream. A dream of warmth, pretty cocktails, cabana boys, and lying about. In my dream, all of my cocktails -every single one- come with a cocktail umbrella. Probably a pink one. And delivered by a cabana boy whilst I lay in the warmth and chat with Nate. I don’t hear children in this dream. I don’t see dirty dishes or bills (nope, this dream is paid for) or grass that needs mowing.

Supplies for cocktail umbrella:

- [easyazon_link identifier="B0711T57BL" locale="US"]tinsel garland[/easyazon_link] (optional)
- Cut paper into circles about 3 inches in diameter (I used a mason jar as a guide)
- Cut a slit into the circle up to the center of the circle.
- Form the cocktail umbrella from the circle. Hot glue into place.
- (I cut my skewers in half but use the size you prefer!) Hot glue the umbrellas onto the skewers.
- For extra fun…cut up a bit of tinsel garland. Put a dab of hot glue on the top of your umbrella and dip it into the tinsel.
Now you too can have a dream worthy cocktail umbrella for your cocktail! Cheers!
