Pretty, practical and solves my problem!

Keep bugs off your food with these adorable lace tents

When we're serving dinner outside, or when you're cooking and dinner is waiting to be served.

Those darn pesky flies are buzzing around because the kids and the dogs are in and out all summer and the door is never closed.

This is a great idea

It looks like a cute little lace umbrella.

  6. Great idea!! Can't believe the price!

  7. Thanks for the heads-up! We are getting ready to go camping and a couple of those would definitely come in handy!

  8. Seriously?! I just made some of these for a party I was having and they were a PAIN to make. But it looks like these may be just to cover a plate. I needed them to cover a big tray...OK. I feel better. I didn't completely waste my time (although I am heading to CVS to get some of your covers TODAY. Lisa~

  9. Awesome idea. I don't think I have a CVS in my area...but i seen these at Dollar General for $1.50 each. A little more pricey. But I think I will pick one up to try.
    Thanks for sharing.

  10. I think those are great! I love eatting outside in the summer but hate the bugs in my food!

  11. We had a bunch of these years ago! I was just thinking of them this past weekend when we had a cookout for Fathers Day and the flies were so bad. I'll check at my CVS.. thanks for the tip.
    Thanks also for linking it up to my link party.

  12. Great idea and a great deal! Love them in white too :)

  13. WOW! Only a $1?!? That is fantastic. What a great find!

  14. OH I love it! Just think of all the things you could do to them later if you want to dress them up. I need a CVS!

  15. Great find! :) Unfortunately we don't have CVS' here in Germany, but I'll keep an eye open for one of those little tents. ;)
