Vintage Luau Tablewares

I'm having so much fun! In vintage luau fashion, here are some pics of the eating utensils. I did find some flower decked, non bright enough cups for the grown ups to sip out of. I made the kids out of smaller $ store cups and each has their own vintage Hawaiian picture. I think they are so cute, I found a great website that puts the pics on postcards and other stuff. Here's a plug since I feel a little guilty using all their awesome photos without actually buying their stuff: I also printed some of the same images on stickers for the plates. The plates are recycled cardboard and stuff (probably made from corn, which is funny only if you're me) and therefore a little brown like cardboard. They already match great and make me feel all green and stuff, too.
My napkins were on clearance at Party City, straight out of the luau section, and the "silverware" is also green/corn/etc so it also has that natural feel. It was very time consuming to wrap it all up, but I love them! The basket is $ store, and the raffia, which has so far tied all my cards and all my silverware and isn't even half way gone, was also from the $ store. Talk about stretching  a buck! Makes me feel better about spending more on the recycled stuff. Why does green stuff cost more?? so annoying.
