Swizzle sticks topped with crepe paper flowers -- a spider chrysanthemum and a sleek calla lily -- add zest to lime spritzers.

How to Make It

Calla Lily: Cut a 5-inch petal freehand (or download the template here) from a single layer of two-toned green crepe paper. Affix 5 pearl stamens (found at crafts stores) to the end of stirrer with floral tape. Place stamen end of stirrer in center of crepe paper petal; wrap petal around stirrer to form blossom; bind with floral tape.

Chrysanthemum: Cut a 2-inch-wide strip from prefolded crepe paper (do not unfold). Fringe with scissors (or download the template here). Unfold paper, and wind strip around end of stirrer; wrap with floral tape to secure. Fluff fringed ends to form a blossom.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

I wouldn't use tissue paper, it doesn't hold it's form as well and won't do well in a drink. Try this site for crepe paper: https://www.castleintheair.biz/shoppe/?b=10

Where can you find the two-toned green crepe paper? I've looked on the Martha Stewart website, and can't find it! Any help would be great, thanks!

Oh I'm glad! They are not EXACTLY like these (the "stick part" is flat not round, but I think they will do!). Happy Wedding!

MEL8937 you are a LIFEASAVER! I'm the queen of Google and could only find versions for personalization for $.40 each! I've looked for hours for these #$%@! things :) These were one of the last "decor" things I needed for my June wedding. Thank you so much for posting!

I finally found the clear swizzles...I just ordered them, so they haven't been delivered yet, but for $9 for 500, it was worth a try: http://barsupplies.com/ball-head-stirrers-p-677.html
