I can't claim credit for this idea. It came from the ever-fabulous Martha Stewart. The only thing I can claim credit for is spray painting the hoops red to match my birthday party. However, I am now a huge fan and will be using this for all outdoor gatherings.
Cost... minimal. Effort... minimal. Keeping bugs off your food... priceless.
