:: Party Tips - milk bottles

I absolutely love planning parties. 
And since having children, I've planned quite a few.
So, at least once a month, I'm going to share some party tips
that will help you in planning your awesome parties.

I love using paper straws.  And if you're using cool paper straws, 
then you need a container that is equally as cool, right?
Well, I always loved those glass milk bottles, but they were too expensive for me to buy.
Then one day I was grocery shopping and noticed these cute, Starbucks frappuccino bottles.
But they're $5-$6 for about 4 of them.  And that was a little too expensive for me.
So, in the city I live in, we have a few facebook "garage sale" sites 
where people are able to sell/buy things.
I asked if there was anyone who drank starbucks frappuccino and if I could have their bottles.
Well, I received a reply . . . from my neighbor! {who goes through many each week}
So, she's been supplying me with these awesome glasses that I now use for each of my parties . . . 
and the best part is that they were free!!!
You will need to let them soak in hot, soapy water for about 30 minutes to take off the label
and then use a scouring pad to remove the sticky residue, but it's totally worth it.
