Lately I’ve been noticing ever-more-innovative drink garnishes and stir sticks that transform a cocktail into a total conversation piece. Thought I’d share a little roundup of my favorite beverage pins of late. The above idea would have been so perfect for the bee-themed baby shower I threw for a friend last summer. Follow the jump for lots more pretties…which one’s your favorite?

Rock candy is a sparkly and sweet garnish for champagne cocktails.

Okay, these may not be drinks…but the glittery swizzle stick would look equally charming lined with blueberries and popped into a fruity martini.

Sweetened or unsweetened? This is such a clever way to identify drinks at a party.

Orange slices add a dash of color (and flavor!) to cool glasses of h2o.

Can’t wait to adopt this idea for my husband’s next birthday party. The faces of the guest of honor are just the right mix of fun…and a little creepy!

    Ok, I am in LOVE with those funny friend-faces swizzle sticks. Hahaha … they are completely cracking me up.

    Also Camille: In that same pic, see those rows of triangle banners in the background? Wow are those in right now. I am seeing them on EVERY design / craft blog it seems like! You too?

    So many creative ideas here. My favorites are the first one and the glittery ones for the donut holes, although they are all darling!
