Have some fun and accent the party by making your own drink umbrellas. Use a soup can as a handy template for paper umbrella tops. Cut the paper with scallop scissors for a added decorative edge. From each circle, remove a pie-slice shape measuring about 1/8 of the circumference. Form into a cone, slightly overlapping straight ends; use a glue stick or double sided tape to secure them. Dab with white craft glue inside the nose of the cone and pierce the tip with a wooden skewer (snip skewer for a custom fit); allow to dry.
