Grab a Jar and Make it Your Own

Good Idea

Well, The Hostess with the Mostess does it again. We are always on the lookout for party ideas that make your life simpler. And one that is simple, elegant and practical all at the same time just can't be ignored. Having your guests add their name to their respective drinking receptacles makes life easier for everyone in the course of an evening. No more awkward exchanges while guests inadvertently down each other's drinks. But we love her execution of this particular idea — the green, striped paper straws for example, are a beautiful addition.

Hop over to Hostess with the Mostess for all the details on how she brought this idea into fruition, as well as other inspiring ideas for a rustic, fall potluck party. The photo booth is a nice touch too.
