What were we doing on the first Saturday in May? Watching the Kentucky Derby, of course!
We actually started our celebration a few days before with a Kentucky Derby themed spring hostess event at the store. We loved seeing everyone come in wearing their Derby hats. We enjoyed brown butter pecans, pecan bars, and cocktails. Thanks to our wonderful neighbor, The Pretzel Bell, we had a bartender in attendance making wonderful mint juleps and southern spiced sweet tea cocktails, all served in beautiful Juliska glassware.
Another highlight of the night was having an engraving machine in-store. Any Mariposa item purchased that evening was engraved with a custom design, date, monogram, or wording. Watching the engraving machine work it's magic was so much fun!
Please come in and ask us about Mariposa, Juliska, and all our other favorite hostess items!
