These special little cups are a gem on the dinner table. They are often decorated with silver-plating and decorative beading to add even more appeal. Choose these mint julep cups for small bouquets of flowers or for serving actual mint juleps. Mint julep cups are small in stature—only about three to five and a half inches tall. Most often, these cups are purchased to be used as tiny flower vases. Their decorative appearance and tiny size make them ideal for smaller tables such as those in cafés or smaller restaurants. For operations that need mint julep cups in order to serve their namesake beverage, these cups will usually work just fine. Call a salesperson to ensure that they will be appropriate for mint julep drinks if this is your intended use.
