The "Not Your Mother's Umbrella" Round Up

By Danikaherrick @danikaherrick
I have been teased by Mother Nature last week into thinking its summer, even though now its grey, cold and crappy out and I have drop clothes over my garden beds (cause I'm impatient like that). So I decided to roll with the mindset and hunt down some great umbrellas for my little sitting area.
Love the Zen prettiness of it all. I'd like 10 of these planted all around my yard. I would wear a petticoat and play crochet and say "Ello Gov'nor".  And my friends and family would probably commit me. Balinese Temple Umbrella 76" Diameter $125
Moving on...
6' Grass Skirt Umbrella and a drink in a pineapple anyone? $39
But way better that that are these colorful ones from Confetti Bay. I am dying over here... LOOK HOW FUN! They scream "Is it 5:00 yet?"(or noon for some folks)

Yes please, and make it a double.  They come in 68" or 72" wide and in a ton of color ways. 
Speaking of drinking and umbrellas, how about something in the way of a giant drink umbrella? I like the pink and greek key action...

7' Oriental Umbrella in Asian Pink
or  7 'Asian Elephants Blue Tangent....More drink umbrellas, how fun are these lights?
The Lush Collection from Bright Lights- Little City
On the higher end of the budget you can get an amazing custom umbrella from WW & Co.
My two favorites are:
Dahlia Umbrella
I so love these, but unfortunately I'd have to sell an organ to own one.  There is no way I could justify $850+ to my husband for a ruffled umbrella. Do I smell a DIY in my future?
Now, if only the weather would warm up so I can crank one open.
