Mint for a Mint Julep Arrangement – We wanted to post this picture of darling little arrangements we did for a cocktail party with little mint julep containers filled with dahlias, sweet peas, ivory roses, and mint.

Whenever it fits the aesthetic, Apryl and I love to incorporate herbs into arrangements. Herbs are so tactile and touchable (we personally love it when people want to touch arrangements since touch is such a part of our experience!). And best of all, most herbs will release their wonderful scent when touched even lightly.

We are also finding the mint julep style container to be very popular with brides – it gives that touch of contrast and elegance with silver but it also diminutive and delicate.

The Mint Julep Cocktail is traditionally served in this style cup (normally in pewter or silver) and the aromatic nature of the mint softens and blends with the bourbon and sugar. Simply summery deliciousness!
