Retro Paper Straws

...Retro Paper Straws

Retro Paper straws are all the rage.  They not only add a fun vibe to your table decor, they add color and a dash of whimsy.  As you can see we have featured them individually displayed in mason jars in our patriotic theme parties.  Sometimes we even add an antenna ball on top.  For my own son's Bar Mitzvah we topped MLB antenna balls on coordinating straws and used them as place cards at the entrance to party.  Just yesterday, my sister threw a handful of striped paper straws in a paper cup – just the right touch for her Labor Day barbecue.

Both Swoozies and Amazon has a nice collection of retro paper straws.  Consider using the pink and blue polka dot straws for your next baby shower.  We love the mini bat straws and orange and black stripe straws for Halloween parties.  The red and green stripe straws are a must have for your cookie baking holiday parties.  The yellow stars straws would be an adorable adder to a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party.  And we believe the yellow & grey stripe straws are elegant enough to use at a chic, vintage chalkboard chic wedding reception. Another idea — choose your sorority colors for your next house party.

One more idea for children's birthday parties … choose a variety of straws and cut them into 1 – 2 inch strips. Now string them together to create cute paper necklaces.  The leftovers can be used for  every day, at lunch and dinnertime.

Party Hearty!
