Pep up your drinks and your table - for a bargain!

While perusing the Hostess with the Mostess, I saw this adorable idea for swizzle sticks. So cute and so easy! You just stick a mum on a little flag and voila - a decorated drink! They would be a great addition to pretty much any type of celebration; a bridal or baby shower, wedding reception, birthday party or just a fun, summer get-together. The beverage decs were originally featured in InStyle's Southern Weddings gallery.

Also on the InStyle site were these wonderful and affordable centerpieces, one of their 6 Chic Decor Ideas. These too, could be functional for numerous events.
