pretty straws

i can't remember, did i tell you we picked our signature cocktail?  if i did, just bear with me because my mind is moving a mile a minute, and oh yeah, i'm almost 3 days away :)

we decided on a great little cocktail called a "hole in one".  it's perfect for our wedding because we're getting married at a yacht & country club, and the guys are all getting their golf game on the day before the wedding.

ingredients:
  • strawberry vodka 
  • lemonade 
  • iced tea
here's a little sign i made to put near the bar and on our cocktail tables during cocktail hour.  as a reminder, we're doing beer and wine (and champagne!) the rest of the night so we want people to take advantage of our special drink :)

so, with our signature drink taken care of, i wanted to make them extra special with the cutest little straws you'll ever see.  check out these little lovelies i picked up today from heliotrope.com!!


i went with pink and gray and i think they'll add just the right amount of extra pizazz to the drinks :)

and the best part?  they were only $8 for 200 straws!!!  yahoo!!!

  11. An Arnold Palmer with strawberry vodka? Yes, please! I wonder if it would be doubly awesome using sweet tea vodka? Off to the liquor store...

    Ps, cute straws!
