One of my all time favorite movie moments is when the carousel horses come alive in Disney’s Mary Poppins. As a young child, I wanted to be on that pink horse and race around the county side, next to Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. My Mom had a love for carousels and I think she passed that down to me, as I still will merrily ride on a painted horse at each chance I can.
My ode to the beloved ride is a charming decorative straw. I made a carousel horse design in Photoshop, printed it, cut it out and then secured it to my favorite straws, striped paper straws. Pretty cute, right? I think the carousel straws would be adorable for a child’s party or an adult carnival themed party.

And because I am so tickled just thinking about Mary Poppins I am giving away a set of striped straws!
