A while back we inherited an old drop-leaf table from the OH’s aunt. It wasn’t really our style but it certainly helped us out as kitchen surface when we had no kitchen. However that dull worn table had a lovely surprise for us – inside its drawers there were lots of fab random bits and bobs, including these delightful paper straws.

Now I had a bit of an obsession with straws (currently made worse by having white braces!) but it’s the packaging that I absolutely adore… It’s just so educational! Did you know that straws are good for parties? Or that they’re good for picnics?

But the piece de resistance… the games on the back of the box!

Who knew you could have so much fun with straws?!

And just in case you’re wondering the straws are pretty great too… such lovely, happy sunshiney colours.

However I can’t actually bare to use them for drinking so at the moment there’s a few just sitting in an empty glass on the sideboard… Might need to think of a better way to display them soon!

Happy weekend everyone xx

P.S. If you want to play any of the games here with stripey straws… Lynne from Tea for Joy sells a lovely range of them at her shop Papermash.
