all the small things: paper straws

It’s no secret that I’m OCD over the tiniest details when I entertain or do an event … all the way down to the straws. Yes, the straws.

One of my favorite little touches to add to my kids’ parties lately have been vintage-inspired paper straws. Just a few ways you can use them:

  • Serve lemonade and add them to the cups
  • Serve them with regular or chocolate milk in individual milk bottles (like I did for this milk & cookie bar)
  • Use them to dress up your tablescapes by setting your tables, complete with beverages (and, of course, straws)
  • Throw them in mason jars around your serving table or even as centerpieces to add pops of color
  • Throw flags on them and lable them with your guests’ names
