These little Dixie cups got all dressed up. I love the attached trim and it is so easy to assemble. There is never an excuse now not to have something to put up on the spur of the moment for an impromptu gathering.

This is a very easy decoration project. The use of holiday lights is a great idea and the decorations on the cup will allow you to use this for any occasion from birthdays to holidays.
