A few years back we turned on the Today Show to see the smiling face of Al Roker standing at Churchill Downs learning how to make a classic mint julep from Fred Noe, a sev­enth-​gen­er­a­tion dis­tiller for Jim Beam. We think this might still be the best Mint Julep Recipe out there and we must admit, since then, we have spent many, many hours testing lots of other recipes. 🙂

.Here is the Mint Julep Recipe as seen on the Today Show:

  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 2 parts Bourbon
  • Add crushed ice
  • The most important part is the mint – first spank the mint and then add it to the mint julep cups
  • Top your mint julep off with more crushed ice
  • Enjoy!
  • Hint (not on the video): An extra-nice touch is to trim straws so they just slightly stick out of the cup. Hence, when guests sip from the short straws, their noses will be close to the refreshing mint garnish.

Real Grass Place Card Holders

Fabulous Turf Place Card Displays Made Easy with Fresh Patch, Real Grass Place Card Holders

Real Grass Place Card Holders

This afternoon, as we were powering through a Shark Tank marathon, we had an aha moment. Finally, an easy solution to one of our favorite place card display ideas – real grass place card holders. We have suggested turf beds & boxes as place card holders for garden theme parties, golf theme parties and sports theme parties of all kinds. Not only are Fresh Patch real grass boxes easy to work with, by changing the Fresh Patch sleeve you can easily capture almost any decor style. The dark oak color works for sporty parties & those going for a very traditional look. The light colored pine sleeves are not only great on their own but they can be easily painted or stenciled to reflect just about any party theme. Think spring flowers for Easter (you can even hide custom painted eggs in the grass) or red white and blue stripes for patriotic parties. Use the stainless steel tray for an industrial modern look. These real grass place card holders or display boxes are perfect for weddings, Bar or Bat Mitzvahs, and fundraisers. Whether you are  hosting an elegant old world theme event, barn hoe down, or Kentucky Derby party, real grass place card holders will wow your guests.

Here are a few images of real grass place card display ideas for inspiration that are now so so easy to DIY with  Fresh Patch real grass boxes.
