I made them with fresh mint and pieces of lemon last summer for a dinner partie. Everyone loved them and the green-yellow colour combo was so lovely:) They look oh-so beautiful. Kisses, Joanna.

Love..love this..but I am.not a flower person..so could somebody give me some names of some flowers that would be safe..I only recently found out that Lilies of the Valley are poison but I don't think they are considered wildflowers but would like some safe names please.
