End The Party For Uninvited Guests

It happens every time….. you get unwanted and uninvited guests….. well, I can’t help you with them. BUT, I can help save drinks at your next outdoor party with this great idea. Its also very cheap so that is also a bonus. Have printed cupcake cups stashed all around for your guests to top their drink off with to prevent bugs from slipping into their drinks. You can go ahead and poke a hole through the middle of the bottom so your guests can easily slip them over their straw (you can use a small dowel or sharpened pencil). This also gives you an area to write each persons name on the top around the straw so people don’t lose their drinks and have to get another and waste your money by wasting drinks…. especially at a children’s party. Thank me later…..
