This pretty centerpiece from Jeffery Rudell over at CraftStylish http://www.craftstylish.com/profile/Jeff_Rudell is a snap to make and will brighten any luncheon table or brunch buffet.
Begin with styrofoam standards (18" tall, available at Michael's, A.C. Moore, or other craft suppliers) and a box of Paper Cocktail Parasols (available at larger grocery stores).
Insert the toothpick-ends of the parasols into the styrofoam globes beginning at the top and working downward.
Notice that the orange, yellow and pink parasols were inserted first and then the green parasols were used to "cover" the areas in between where the styrofoam globe ...
Wrap the stem of your standard with a length of ribbon, securing each end to the styrofoam with a straight pin.
Place your standard into a clay or decorative flowerpot and add a handful of rice (or grain or beans) as a decorative "soil".
The finished pieces add a bit of whimsy to a weekend luncheon table. Find many more paper projects from this crafter over at http://www.craftstylish.com/profile/Jeff_Rudell
