It’s Saturday night and your big bash is going swimmingly. You’re just going to grab a small plate of appetizers, and then it happens: You lose your drink in the sea of matching glasses, drink stirrers and beverages (hello, signature party cocktail. Thanks a lot.). Fret not! These easy-to-pull-together markers are foolproof. Some you can pull off at a moment’s notice (tape to the rescue!), while others require just a little prep before the party. All are so worth the effort. What are you waiting for? We’re ready for a drink!
4. Double Duty Straw: Have you ever seen a straw you’d rather sip on than these two? One tells you which drink is yours and the other is a double duty cocktail sipper and costume. (via Smitten on Paper)
5. Cool Clothespins: Leave a frame of labeled clothespins out for guests (and the bride and groom, obviously) so they can drink all night long with no worries of mixing up beverages. (via Rock My Wedding)
9. Straw Style: Pattern-pretty straws and tape make for a super fast and cute tag. The best part? You can make them ahead of time and let guests grab their straws as they pour their first sip. (via Design Fixation)
10. Tag It: Shipping tags take on a whole new life when updated with sparkly letters (initials for your guests’ names!) and are tied around the stem of a wine glass. You’re welcome. (via DIY Philanthropy)
11. Fringe Fun: These fringe-tastic drink tags step up the fun about 10 notches (trust us, we’re fun authorities). Go for orange, blue or any other color you think will make a statement. (via Squirrelly Minds)
