Easy summer beauty...

Who knew baking cups could be so cute and multi-functional? Martha, of course. I was looking for ideas for summer entertaining when I came across these on her website. The idea of using straws and paper cups to make flowers is adorable and simple, though I would probably use these for a quick centerpiece ~ just splash some pretty pink and yellow lemonade in a few different sized glasses and plop a couple of these in ~ rather than actually drinking from them. The idea of using baking cups for glass covers is an ingenious way to keep the flies at bay, don't you think? Easy, inexpensive, cute and functional, all in one. Love it.
