Friday Things- Kentucky Derby Party Edition

 {homemade derby hat sugar cookies}
The Kentucky Derby is this weekend, and I couldn’t be more delighted. Not only am I excited to see what everyone is wearing at the Derby (especially the hats!), but I am hosting a party as well. Here is a glance at some elements of my Derby party.

 {party polish: Pandora by Zoya}
{individual bottles of PURE LEAF Sweet Tea}
I have no idea how to make "Southern Sweet Tea", and when I tried it tasted awful. PURE LEAF's Sweet Tea taste perfectly homemade and the individual bottles are a classic touch. 
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Lipton Pure Leaf. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating

  8. I love sweet tea and since my family is from the south, I am a pro at it:-) I love those cookies! so cute. And of course I have always wanted to go to the Derby. I went to a Derby event where I live last year and got to wear a cute dress and big ol hat...LOL

    I tried mint juleps and I think they are awful. I really don't know why people like them
