Going through some stuff from last year and came across this one, I thought I had uploaded it before, but apparently I hadn’t 🙂
These were nicely arranged on a table that was otherwise filled with plates and condiments of all sorts, and, of course, the birthday cake.
I am still not entirely sure what it was about the arrangement that I liked, except the obvious plethora of colours, that is. I think everyone likes these little umbrellas, one in your ice-cold drink makes you feel special 🙂
They always look so delicate, a parasol made of paper and cardboard with a toothpick handle, always brightly coloured, sometimes patterned, lending an airy feel as you look at your drink, a feeling of the exotic, as if you should be on a sandy beach, with blue skies above, blue waters to swim in, and some sort of soft Asian or Indian music filtering through the nearby trees to buoy the soul.
