Then, after seeing images from a gorgeous Mexican inspired rehearsal dinner, I decided to also use my mint in another, way; floral arrangements.
The original inspiration used anemones and mint in old cans and soda bottles. I used it mixed with tulips and yellow freesia in a mason jar tied with raffia.
Not only does the mint add great color and texture but it also smells great.
The funny thing is that the mint I thought I'd only be using for one salad has now become my favorite herb and I've already cut back and used the entire plant (good thing new leaves are already starting to appear!)
