And my next lemon DIY is another simple way to dress up straws! We’ve made these twice before (with just the balloons and as pumpkins!) so it was only a matter of time before these reappeared on our site. We truly believe in reusing simple ideas for new purposes.
Ever since I started my whole30 (I know, I cannot believe it either. Machelle did it before and loved it so I finally gave in. Luckily, she is doing it with me as well.)

So, please go and enjoy a nice cold glass of lemonade for me! And add these lemon balloons to the drink for fun.
