Party Fabulous: Simple Strawberry-Mint Glass Garnish

For the past two and a half years, I've complained about everything from a lack of utensils to an unfriendly hostess in my regular column called, Party Foul. Well, guess what? I don't just want to focus on the bad. Parties are supposed to be fun, so it's high time I introduce a new feature, Party Fabulous, that highlights haute hostesses and chic party ideas. Take this simple, but pretty garnish, for example. While I've seen plenty of champagne flutes topped with strawberries, I've never seen a heart-shaped strawberry with mint-leaf garnish. I found this lovely detail at a recent bachelorette party. Here's how to re-create it at home:

  1. Stem and hull the strawberry.
  2. Turn the berry over and run the knife though the bottom so it can be placed on top of a glass (be careful not to cut the berry all the way in half).
  3. Take two small mint leaves and place inside the hole. Slide onto a glass. Voila!

Can you imagine how gorgeous a tray of strawberry-topped glasses will look at the entrance of a party? Do you have a fabulous tip for a party? Share your experiences below.

Party, I could not agree more about the gloriousness of a strawberry garnish. I was served a cocktail at a seaside resort and while I wasn't too keen on the drink itself I kept taking sips just to inhale the luscious strawberry scent! They plopped a huge whole strawberry on the side of my glass and it was just divine.

Cute! I do this when I plate desserts at work but I'll have to give it a try on glasses too :)
