Like the rest of the party planning world, I am pretty obsessed with paper straws at events. They add whimsy to a dessert table, a pop of color in an old fashion soda bottle and just that extra something special to any event. I ordered these bright blue short paper straws a few weeks ago for my toddler son as he LOVES drinking out of straws. When I got them, I realized that they would make great decor rather than being stuck in our bar or in a drawer. I put them in an old apothecary jar I had around and put them on my counter. They are beautiful! Now I’m debating about which color to get next. Because they are always out for the world me to see, I get to experience a bit of joy every time I walk by the jar. Ahhhh. Love!
