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!

Mustache (Moustache) Bash Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Mustache Bash Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

We admit it — for months we have been dismissing one of this year's hottest fads, Mustache Mania.  The truth is we just didn't get it.  But it is one of those fads that has definitely grown on us (pun intended).  We love the simplicity of design and actually find ourselves smiling whenever we see a “stache bash” invitation. The magnificent mustache theme is perfect for bachelor and fraternity parties, both and adult and children's birthday parties, retirement parties, and even weddings (check out that fabulous Stache + Kiss Wedding invitation below) .

Even if you don't want everything at your next party to be mustached, adding a touch of “stache” whimsy here and there will undoubtedly product quiet chuckles amongst your guests.  We promise, these little touches will not only be noticed but they will be appreciated.  Not sure that any of you noticed, but if you look closely at our new image on our welcome page, you will find a small mustache inserted under the word {Pros} – yes, we put it there just because it makes us smile!

In brightest day, in blackest night,

No evil shall escape my sight

Let those who worship evil's might,

Beware my power… Green Lantern's light!

The Green Lantern is the shared primary alias of several superhero characters (including Alan Scott, Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart, Kyle Rayner, and Jade) appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring and power lantern that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. The ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe, and can be very dangerous. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps.  (Thank you Wikipedia!)

Plot summary: A test pilot is granted a mystical green ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers, as well as membership into an intergalactic squadron tasked with keeping peace within the universe.
