Dig through your stash of doilies~ be they vintage or new. Select smaller sizes to fit over the top of a glass.

Tatted doilies are perfect as the stitching allows you to add a fun straw to your drink.

Your pretty lace covers for your drinks are so pretty. I have seen the pitcher covers with glass beads sewn onto the edges to weigh them down in case a breeze blows up. Pretty and practical!
Hope you are enjoying the Labour day holiday! :)

This is the time of year when flies present a problem in the country. What a pretty and great way to deal with them. Thanks for the idea!

Believe it or not, I got rid of all the doilies that my mother had as well as the ones I had. Just could not use them for decor, however, this is a great idea!

I've tried placing a straw through a cupcake liner ~ works well with the right size glass.
