On the day of the party, fill each balloon with helium and tie to a balloon weight with fishing line.

You can also attach them to the white balloon sticks we stock as a favor to hand out to the children at your party!

Swan Lake DIY Party Straws

When I planned Sophia’s Swan Lake birthday party I knew I had to make these swan lake DIY party straws!

My versions of these straws slightly differ from the ones I spotted on Pinterest but I’m really happy with how they turned out!
