Aaah it’s Friday! The end of a very busy week and I feel like celebrating with a refreshing libation. It’s still early, so I’m going to have a delicious chillled pomegranate juice. Now my drink doesn’t look particularly celebratory, so I think I will add a cocktail stirrer and a fun straw. It’s straight to the party box to see what goodies I can find for my stirrer. I ended up finding a pack of tiny coloured water ballons. Ah ha! An idea is forming in my mind. Why don’t I add one of these balloons to my stirrer! Et Voila! I give you my DIY balloon cocktail stirrer. It’s so simple, it’s silly. You will need a good pair of lungs if you are using water balloons. I would recommend buying these cute tiny balloons that I found on – Sweet Lulu. a sweet little online party store.
How to make this:
- Wooden cocktail stirrer or skewer
- Tiny coloured balloon
- Festive paper straw
To make the DIY balloon cocktail stirrer, you will need a wooden stirrer or skewer that fits about the same height as a straw. You can trim the skewer with a pair of scissors if it’s too tall. Now blow up your coloured balloon and attach it to your stirrer. Add the stirrer and a pretty paper straw to your drink and you’re ready to swizzle. These balloon cocktail stirrers would be perfect for fun birthday or cocktails parties. It’s a nice way to dress up a mocktail too. Makes the non-drinkers feel like they are partying with the rest of us. I hope you enjoyed this little DIY craft.
So it’s cheers to you, my friend. I wish you a wonderful weekend.
