As I wrapped up the layout and picture choices for our wedding album with the photographer this week I realized it has been a while since I blogged about wedding stuff.

Wedding blogs turned me onto all sorts of fun little items which make for adorable details at a wedding … or a bridal shower, baby shower or any kind of party really.  One of my biggest must haves for my wedding was purple barbor shop paper straws.

I Googled purple paper straws for weeks and … NOTHING.  I could find gray, pink, red, blue and other colors, but no puprle.  Then I got my Dad to look online.  As always he worked his magic and WALAH …

Check ‘em out:

They are totally affordable at $21 for 150 straws. I purchased 150 straws with a guest attendance of ~100 people (PLANNING TIP).  The straws were well received by the guests and people were asking for the “fun straws” in whatever drink they were ordering. YAY!

Here’s a couple of my favorite pictures of barbor shop straws:

Oh my I love that picture!  I’m dying to buy more straws maybe in pink or yellow, but first I need to find a party to help plan and/or host.  Anyone hosting a baby shower or have a bridal shower coming up?  This little detail would be fabulous!

Happy Planning!
