diy sombrero hat umbrellas

ai yi yi yi!
it's cinco di mayo season.
do you celebrate?

i say i don't but the past couple years 
we have gone out for mexican food on 
the 5th of may so i guess i better say 
that "yes i do celebrate it."

so in honor of the upcoming holiday,
i made some drink umbrellas for your
margaritas and mojitos,
neither of which i drink cuz well, 
i don't drink.

but who says you can't have an umbrella 
in a non-alcoholic drink?
and who says it can be in the shape of a sombero?

i do that's who!
these were fun to make.
lemme show you the easy-how-to.

so there you have it!
isn't that enough to celebrate cinco di mayo now?

don't they look cute in margaritas and mojitos?

ok, so yes they are cartoon, 
but ¡Ay, caramba!  
it's hard to make a margarita or mojito for 
a blog post when you don't even drink...

so i'm off to make a limeade with 
a little sombrero umbrella.

just promise me after you put these in your drinks 
you won't use them in the rain.


  1. KEEEE-UTE!! You know, I think the first (or close to first)post I ever read of yours, before you became my BBFF, was for Cinco de Mayo! It was actually a "guy" in a sombrero! Totally cracked me up and I've been with you ever since! See what you get for being so creative? ME! Poor you. Lucky me! Dona

    1. no no lucky lucky me that i got you as a BBFF! :>D and i remember those sombrero hat surprise cookies i made like it was yesterday. time flies when you're having fun right Dona? :)

  2. I love your cute little sombrero umbrellas! Hubby and I had Mexican for dinner tonight and were talking about our tradition of celebrating every year. I'll take one of your umbrellas for my diet soda! ;)
