Paper straws are one of my favorite things. They are so fun and the perfect addition to any party. I knew I wanted to find some for my daughter's first birthday party (can't believe she's already almost a year old!!) but as always didn't want to spend a fortune. I've been keeping an eye out at local party supply stores and Marshall's (I've seen them there before) but haven't really come up with anything. I found some online but didn't really want to pay shipping. Well, I just happened to stop by Michaels the other day and they had some in their dollar section. I was pleasantly surprised that a set of 18 was only $2. I love their dollar section, you can always find something in there you need.
They had an assortment of colors but the quantities were dwindling, so if you are looking for some you might want to head on over soon.

Have you used paper straws? My guess is that they may taste a little cardboardish, but the cuteness factor wins out in this case!
