Dressed Up Easter Drinks for Kiddos {& Grown Ups, too!}

The wind was not my friend taking the above photo...it's a crazy windy sort of day here.
But, I was excited to show you all what I'm doing this weekend for the kiddies at our Easter gathering. Wanted something fun for them to sip on...and that would keep bugs out since we'll be outside!
(This is kind of a conglomeration of several pinterest ideas out there).

I used these glass coffee drink bottles (my husband's been chugging them for me all week). I used the generic brand from my store, it was $1 cheaper than the "real deal". I also grabbed Easter printed cupcake liners from Hob Lob and straws. These would be super sweet with the stripey straws, too!

But, of course, these are available everywhere, too.


After consuming, peel off the plastic wrapper (the entire bottle is covered in it...it's nice that you don't have to scrub off paper, though)! Wash them out well.

Pour in your favorite drink. We're using pink lemonade 'cause we're fancy like that.

 Snip a little "X" on the center of your cupcake liner. 
Lay it top side down on your bottle and slip your straw inside.

  1. Very cute with the cupcakes cases over the top!

  2. Those are so simple and cute...I don't have the bottles yet in time for Easter, but they could easily be used in the summer and the cupcake wrapper will keep the drink shaded. LOVE IT!

  3. This is one of the smartest ideas! Thanks for sharing at oopsey daisy!

  4. Cute way to serve drinks. I have been eyeing these jars for awhile now. I just need to go for it and buy a pack of coffee drinks...it's not like we won't drink them! Kids love having fancy food and drinks and this will certainly appeal in that way!

  5. Super cute way to serve drinks this Easter! Just hoping the weather warms up now :)

  6. Those are adorable! I have a ton of cupcake liners leftover from my daughter's birthday, so I'm totally doing this!!

  7. Quick, easy, and cute! Just how I like it - great idea, Kristi!

  8. Thank you for posting and giving the information. Honestly, I admire your blog as it catches much interest and has got a very good layout.
