Entertaining at Home,
I love my dad's collection of swizzle sticks, wih tons from airlines and casinos, plus famous restaurants like the Brown Derby. We have almost all the ones in that picture above.
I purchased a small swizzle stick collection from a Church rummage sale for 10 cents. It was fun looking through all of them. They compliment my vintage barware perfectly and they are so fun and colorful.
