I love cocktail umbrellas. The reason I love them so much is because they remind me of my childhood. In case you were worrying I didn't drink - although I do rather love cocktails now - no, for some reason my grandparents had some at their house which I used to love playing with. I have no idea why they had them, I don't think they ever drank cocktails. I'm not sure I even realised that they were alcoholic drink accessories at the time, I just thought they were really cute. Anyway, this photo makes me smile because it reminds me of my grandparents. It's also a lovely happy colourful and happy photo which I'd loved even without the nostalgia.
