Despite my inability to drink bourbon, I love silver mint julep cups. I had a mint julep once…while at the Kentucky Derby no less…but it did not agree with me. What stuck from that trip though, was a secret passion for mint julep cups. This has since broadened into a passion for silver cups, although julep cups do remain my favorite.
This holiday season, silver mint julep cups in my personal collection are going to star in my holiday decorating scheme. This is partly due to choice…but also beginning to get tinged with a bit of necessity. Last time I looked at the calendar it was the middle of November! Now it’s December 4th and I’m not quite sure when I’m going to get to decorating.
This happens to me every year. I have grand ambitions, but being time poor, my schemes have to be scaled back to a more manageable reality. Hence the silver cup holiday decorating equation……….Silver mint julep cup + decorative accent = instant decoration. FYI it works equally well with bowls too.
