Christmas Straws

Fun Christmas straws for the kids.

I bought some of those lovely paper straws the other day from Green Grass Home & Body in Oxford Street, Bulimba.  As they were red and white I decided to make some fun Christmas themed straws for the kids to use on Christmas day.

I used
red & white paper straws
Christmas scrapbook stickers from Overflow (discount store)
and a pdf printable from Betsy White Stationary

Print out the straw flags, cut and glue around the straw, then simply attach the sticker.

What to drink - red cordial of course!

The beautiful red & white tablecloth was a gift from my mum.  She bought it at a local vintage market in France when she was there in July.  It has the initials F L cross-stitched on it.  What do you think it stands for - French Linen?

The little bottles are just from the Italian section at the supermarket and originally had pear juice in them.
