drink parasols {Memorial Day}

I love these little drink parasols from Martha.  They are not only adorable stirrers, but they will also help distinguish drinks during your Memorial Day festivities.  This DIY couldn’t be easier.  Simply print out the patterns, cut around, cut on the dotted line and form your parasol tops.  Use a little tape to keep its shape.  Attach them to bamboo skewers by just poking them through the umbrella point. lovey

It appears to me that Martha has a sparkling cranberry drink, or something similar, which would work great.  For another refreshing and patriotic drink to house your awesome parasols, try this drink I found on Real Simple.
