So I guess cute paper straws have been a thing for like 6 or 7 years now? Does that sound right? I know I used some at O’s 1st birthday and that was almost 5 years ago. But I couldn’t find them in a regular store, I had to special order them from etsy. And now I’m seeing them in the dollar section at Target which is when you KNOW something is really trendy. And don’t get me wrong, I love them, they’re so cute! But have you ever actually used one? They’re great for like a couple minutes of drinking but then they start to get soggy. And I keep seeing party planning posts where the host has all these cute drinks lined up in adorable mason jars or milk bottles with cute paper straws in each one and all I can think is, “Wait, you put the straws in before your guests showed up?! Won’t they be a squishy wet mess by the time anyone gets to them?” So today, friends, I’m sharing some fun OTHER uses for cute straws. Because you might as well use them for something that will last a while, right?? Enjoy!
