Add a vintage flavor to your wedding bevvies with paper straws #Food#beverages#dry wedding#steal-this-idea Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted May 21 2012) Ariel arielmstallings So you're serving something delicious at your wedding — maybe even a fabulous mocktail, for your alcohol-free event? And you want a little something extra, something to take your slightly rustic carnival rainbow colorsplosion non-theme to the next level? You could add a little vintage-flavored BLAMMO to your drinks with these paper straws. Bonus: they're pretty budget friendly, with packs of 144 straws going for $7.

But they sure are cute! Reply LOL! You just reminded me I bought a box of these for the wedding! NO IDEA where they are! Reply Just remember to buy the 10 1/2" ones if you are using them for soda in glass bottles. Sugar Diva has some cute ones for a fare price. Reply Not only are try budget friendly but they've got to be a damm better than using plastic as a disposable to end up in landfill Reply The Sugar Diva has a lot more in different colors and styles in case anyone wanted to use this idea, I'm definitely considering it. http://www.thesugardiva.com/category_112/PAPER-STRAWS-.htm Reply Abiut time OBB jumped on the paper straw bandwagon! I definitely suggest shopping around because amazon has limited styles. You can find more than just stripes- stars, hearts, polka dots. 🙂 Reply ok call me silly, I have some of these but I'm afraid of them dissolving into the water like a paper lollipop stick in your mouth, do they last? Reply Most are coated in wax, which keeps them mostly waterproof in cold beverages. In this way, they're a bit like a McDonald's cup or something–if you leave it soaking for a long time, it will eventually break down. But if they're submerged in liquid only a couple hours, I'd think it would be fine. Reply Seeing this photo made me think that having milkshakes at a wedding reception would be a blast. Tasty and Fun! Thanks for the idea! Reply We had these at our wedding sticking out of little baby champagne bottles 🙂 Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
