For a simple look that’s no less striking, just attach a personalised sticker around your straws. The pattern on the straws does the rest of the work for you, which is why we used our birch print straws. They’re particularly perfect for a woodland wedding.

1) With our yellow and pink ribbons, we simply tied them to our straws with the tags. We tied the pink ribbon in a pretty bow, but we left the ends of the yellow ribbon loose and curled the ends around a pencil to put a springy curl in it.

2) With the blue straws, we used our twine to tie a tag and small wooden button to each straw.
