I've heard great things about fellow decorators using bubble tea straws for supporting tiers... does anyone have a good supplier of these? Are they really as good as I've heard?
Try Ebay. Best prices I have found.
I get mine at Bed Bath & Beyond... a big pack for less than $2. They call them milkshake straws.
Amazon has them
I usually order from Ebay, they are very reasonably priced!
If you have any Asian supermarkets around, they're the best place to get them at for really cheap.
tiffyB73, I saw the Milk Shake straws at BB&B but they look a little bit thinner and not as sturdy as the "boba" tea straws but it's another great place to get them at too especially with their 20% off coupons.
I have used the bubble tea straws, and find them to work well. They are sometimes called smoothie straws too.
My best source is an Asian market. They seem to be the most economical.
Happy bubble tea straw hunting
I ordered mine on Amazon. I believe it was buy two packages, get two free so I ended up getting around 180 for $10 which included shipping. How much are they at BB&B?
