Get The Current Issue Of Southern Bride Now


You wouldn’t dream of hosting a Fourth of July gathering without wearing your red, white and blue…so why would you let your cold beverage miss out on a chance to express your extreme fandom?

Thanks to Aardvark’s metallic and Fourth of July paper straws, your drink can match the theme of your party for the USA. These durable, bendable and FDA-approved paper straws won’t bleed ink or fall apart in your drink and are better for the environment than regular, boring old plastic straws.
