Something with an umbrella in it...

Half of the fun of creative tiki cocktails is seeing the garnish that comes with it, whether it is a lovely orchid blossom, a pineapple frond or a tiny paper umbrella. There is something really appealing about those little umbrellas, fragile and whimsicle, skewered to a cherry or slice of lemon. What a shame that their moment in the sun (or candlelight) is so limited.

Well, why not bring those umbrellas out into the sun - literally. Here's a lovely hair clip with layers of hibiscus petals and umbrella accent. Shiny and bright like a new penny, one might say.

Something a bit more daring, with gathered tulle, deep purple and pink blooms with a little pink umbrella already partially open, just ready for the next drink.
