  46. I think the red valentine hearts are sooooo cute. As for the use, well for the first time, I’m having a valentine dinner prepared for a bunch of friends that they would be perfect for my decor…
    What a nice idea…

  47. Hi, this paper straws are amazing. I like the aqua and white ones. My second choice would be grey and white. I think they are perfect for the next party and i would use them also for shooting nice blog photos.

    Vera recently blogged..Baby-Karten

  48. The red straws are the best… suitable for any kind of party. With no doubt they’re my fave :-D

  49. Awesome!
    I would love to have the green and white striped ones – as i am planning a baby shower for my flatmate. She found out that she´s preggo around christmas. It was kind of surprising to her but she is happy.
    I think green and white suits for boys and girls so i don´t have to wait until we all know what it´s going to be.

  50. Ohhh Double-WOW! I love your e-mag very very much… and thanks for this great give-away… hope to win the black&white striped straws… would fit so much to my “carnival black & White party” next week…

    Lykke recently blogged..Büro Büro

  52. I love them all but the red stripe will go with just about anything and the red hearts are fab! I think I might use them as a pole for a banner in cupcakes.

  53. I love the green/white ones and the blue stiped :D

  54. My son likes the green striped ones (he likes green in every way as long as it’s not in food…) whereas I prefer the navy striped straws as I’m dreaming of drinks on a nautical inspired sun-drenched deck (it’s sooo wintery right now!).

  55. How beautiful! I`d like the straws with red dots because they’re so cute and the ones with green stripes. They look so fresh and I think, I would enyoy to drink a tasty mangosmoothy with one of them.



  56. Hi

    I like the green and the purple ones.
    They would be perfect for my daughters birthdayparty, a pyjamaparty.


  57. I would choose the black and white striped straws and the kelly green and white striped straws: Black and white stripes, because it is just a classic combination, green and white, because it would go perfectly well with a fruity mojito or caipirinha – and these days I am craving for summer feeling!

  58. Love the pink heart straws. They would be great for my valentine’s party.

  60. Love these straws! I would love the red striped (reminds me of the red & white plastic ones I had as a kid) and the red hearts (just because they’re gorgeous!). I’ve had a recipe for a rhubarb & rose cordial I’ve been meaning to try for a while & think these straws would match perfectly with it! Have shared the giveaway on my facebook :o)

  61. I love the heart straws and I think it would be adorable to use at a kids Valentine party, or an adult one for that matter. I also love the blue and white polka dot. My favorite color is blue and love the retro feeling of polka dots. Thanks for the chance to win these :)

  62. I like the green and white striped most.

  63. I love the green stripes and the red and blue stars. Too cute.

  64. Love the Gray and White Stripes Straws!!!

    Love your eMag and will look further through your posts. :D

    I have to go with the “Red Valentine Hearts” – for Valentines Day. I will prepare a lovely breakfast for my bf with heart-shaped oven pancakes, Creamcheese-Stuffed Lemon French Toast, lots of other cute little heart-filled things. Plus an awesome milkshake (well, I will call it a Smoothie, because it’s going to be fo breakfast). Those straws would be just perfect.

    Also the “Yellow and White Stripes” look great. They would be perfect for my birthday party. The topic is going to be “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows” And those straws would represent the sun. :DDD
