BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Lay-Me is a decorative 9 inch circular shaped screening mesh for beverage containers. It is specifically designed to screen indoor and outdoor insects from coming into contact with the inside beverage of cups/glasses. For example; beer pilsner, goblets, mugs, flute, stem drinking glasses, and stemless champagne glasses. With this invention, consumers will be able to take their Lay-Me, place it over the top portion of various sized drinking glasses as a screen, and enjoy their drink without indoor or outdoor insects having invaded the beverage in the glass.

A Lay-Me is a manufactured article which is made from 9 inch various colored nylon screening mesh and is circular-shaped to cover the top portion of drinking glasses and mugs.

Lay-Me drapes from the top portion with a variety of embellishments and gem stones. Lay-Me offers an ideal blend of luxury and everyday practicality. I can add (optional) a ⅜″ grommet for drinking straws.

Lay-Me screens indoor and outdoor insects without adding chemicals to the environment.

For outdoor or indoor entertainment, this invention, Lay-Me, provides an immediate line of defense against unwelcome pests.

As a result of attempting to relax and enjoy the outdoors, I started noticing tiny insects flying around and inside my favorite drink. This occurrence prompted me to create my own solution, Lay-Me.
