Cocktail hour/reception project  - personalized straws

 

I ordered some pinstriped straws from Etsy (Sweet Treats Boutique) and made personalized flags for them.  I bought the paper for the flags at

 

Here is the generic template I used for the flags:

 

 

 

Once I completed my design on the attached template, I printed the template and used a paper cutter to trim the flags.  I used double-sided tape on the back of the flags and folded them in half by pressing the ends together.  I then slid the flag onto the straw & secured it at the desired position with the tape.  I then pressed the paper tightly together around the straw.  Once the flag was secured, I cut out a "V" by freehand.

 

Additonal Things

 

I also ordered the following Thank You Cards for our Dinner Reception Plates from Etsy (That Pretty Invitation - Alexia Vondrachek) - they have been made navy blue with white print & personalized with our names.  I will post a picture when I receive...they are en route!  I am looking for affordable little burlap flowers to use to display them like in the picture.

 

 

I just picked out our wedding cake - same as this picture, yet green and white flowers instead of the pink roses.  We also ordered the anchor cake topper in the picture from Etsy (The Pink Owl Gifts).

 

 

More to come....we leave in 4 weeks!

Here's a bigger picture of the cake topper I purchased in silver, but picked a different letter font:

    Oh kard613 - LOL!  That is cute & so sweet of you to say!  Thank you so much.  I cannot believe it's here.  All the planning does pay off.  Thank goodness for finding this site and starting my planning when I did.  Now it's just a lot of last minute things like my Table #'s and maraca placecard/tags, etc.

     

    PS:  I would love to help you out or being a sounding board - just let me know.  I think I found my niche!
