Straw styling competition: the winners

A big thank you to everyone who took part in the straw styling challenge: Royal Wedding Edition! The challenge was to style a party scene using stripy paper straws. I still have not had any ideas of my own!

First, the runners up:

When the party's over by Mathilde Heart Manech from Yorkshire and Royal Wedding {straw}berry Party {!} by MK Wings from Edinburgh. Congratulations - you both win 2 boxes of straws!

And first prize goes to....

Down the ale {brilliant!} by Thimbles and Crumbles, written by Surrey-based Sarah. I loved the 'Buck Palace Fizz' and all the props - doesn't it make you want to have a picnic? It's almost warm enough... Sarah wins a £50 voucher for Papermash. Please visit the winners and say hello! All other entrants win a £5 voucher.

Also, to celebrate, I'm offering 15% off today at Papermash if you fancy stocking up on street party supplies; just enter code straws at checkout.

Lovely ideas and styling, I am hoping the Old town here has a street party if not I will have to host it myself, using your straws of course x

Thank you and well done everyone! We all had such different ideas it was a brilliant theme I have to say and has me all twitchy for some royal bunting and bun making!
Ps, it is just so perfectly clement here that a mik nik {as the little one calls them} is most definitely on the cards for today! x

Well done, Sarah! To be honest, as soon as I saw your 'Down The Ale', I thought, 'that's the winner!'. You put so much effort into it and I just want to be in that picture, so much fun!! And what a great title. Again, well done. x
