Excess Herbs Are the Perfect Way to Jazz Up a Cocktail Bar

Hosting an event and curious about fun, easy ways to make it look over-the-top? We’re fans of pairing rustic pails full of excess garden herbs with the pretty accouterments of a modern cocktail bar (above).

Herbs that are frequently found in cocktails like mint, rosemary, and basil tend to be invasive and, if left unchecked, will take over more than their fair share of the garden. The solution? Cut huge sections of them back and use the excess “bouquets” to furnish your next cocktail experience. The lushness of plants makes everything look fancy. Encourage guests to muddle their own herbs and voilà: the most Instagram-worthy cocktail bar imaginable.
