DIY Washi Tape Straw Labels

Saturday brunch: Where champagne flows like wine. (Yup, that was my take on the Dumb & Dumber "Aspen" line.) Recently while celebrating Kristen's birthday, I was sipping mid-day mimosas among friends when Lindsay, an event planner, suddenly pulled out colorful washi tape, striped straws and told us to get decorating. "We're making champagne flute labels!" she explained.

My jaw dropped.

Umm...did we just become best friends? <-- Only thought in my mind for at least 30 seconds. I mean, come on, the girl carries decorative tape and straws in her purse for the sole purpose of adding pizzaz to drinking glasses. How amazing is that?

After recuperating from my newfound girl crush, I of course turned into a giddy child and started "ooh-ing" and "ahh-ing" over this unexpected little DIY project. I was too busy snapping photos of the ordeal to build anything impressive, but Lily whipped up a cute tape-turned-bow-label for the birthday girl. Isn't it adorable? I just love this idea to bring for brunches with girlfriends, no matter what the occasion.

  14. Look how cute! I love a striped paper straw, but the decorative tape takes it to the next level.
