Imagine it. You’re stretched across a lounge chair, soaking up the summer rays with an ice-cold drink in hand. The sights and sounds of the French Riviera swirl around you as you settle in for a relaxing nap. Doesn’t that sound amazing? While we can’t give you a one-way ticket to paradise, we can help you recreate the luxurious feel of the French Riviera at home. These Cardstock Paper Riviera Drink Umbrellas will take your summer cocktails from boring to chic in no time.
Ready to take your drink game up a notch? Grab the supplies and materials you see listed below. Though this beginner-friendly project is simple to put together, we recommend a cutting machine to speed things along.
This month’s collection is all about the extravagance of the French Riviera. These ooh-la-la drink umbrellas are the perfect embellishment for your summer cocktails and couldn’t be easier to put together. Simply pick your paper colors, cut them out, and glue —c’est bon! We chose stripes — a pattern synonymous with French culture — in bright yellow, pink, and blue for our drink toppers. However, you’re free to choose any colors that bring a smile to your face.
These pretty umbrellas are perfect for drinks, but we think they’d make fun cupcake toppers for a French Riviera-themed birthday part. We’d love to see where your umbrellas end up, so please remember to send us a few pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia or in our crafters’ community.
