Some friends of ours have a Kentucky Derby party every year. The best part about this party is not so much the race, but the mint juleps! Marinated for days before the party, they are authentic and are served in these silver cups. We even drink with gloves to keep the frost on the cup.
Hats were plentiful this year; we attributed that to the Royal Wedding. There were some fascinators, lots of wide brims, and if you look close enough, "my little ponies".
Course, being the artist I am, I had to make mine. I was inspired by Princess Beatrice, the queen, Philip Treacy and mint juleps.
Anyone else out there a mint julep fan?
Happy Mother's Day Everyone!
