Spring wedding season is here, and that has us in a floral frenzy. We’ve been dreaming of the best pink bridal bouquets, floral aisle décor, and even stylish boutonnieres for the guys. But now, as the weather turns warmer and wedding festivities head outdoors, we can’t stop thinking about our favorite floral wedding detail—cocktails embellished with edible blooms.
These pretty sippers are incredibly versatile—choose daisies and mason jars for a rustic, country-inspired celebration, or go with martini glasses and elegant violets for a more formal affair—and are as refreshing as they are eye-catching. Bonus: Trimming the blooms and making flower-filled ice cubes is an ideal DIY project. Pick your favorites and get pouring!
