How excited are all of you for the Kentucky Derby this Saturday? Usually people post the day before about a party but whats the fun of good tips and ideas when you've already planned the party? My husband and I LOVE the Derby and this year we're throwing a Kentucky Derby Party. Here are some great tips for throwing one on your own (or just invite yourself to ours).
|Possibly my favorite part about the Kentucky Derby are the fabulous hats. This one is from J. Crew--Derby Fabulous.|
|The next most important thing are the Mint Juleps in my fave little silver cups. This recipe requires 17 lemons so if you're feeling |
|Flowers are a must for a party and they must be roses for the Kentucky Derby, the Run for the Roses.|
|I found these great Kentucky Derby vintage plates on Ebay which would make great hors d'oeuvres plates.|
|Preppiness abounds at a Kentucky Derby (or any party of mine) and I'm OBSESSED with these cute seersucker napkins that I found on Etsy!|
|With all the fun decor and hats I almost forgot about the food. I'm going with my standby baked brie with fig preserves but who can resist this pie? I found this Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie on my go-to party planning blog, HERE.|
Do you all love the Kentucky Derby as much as I do? It's so much fun to pick the horse you want to win (obviously the one with the most amusing name), and compete for fun with your friends or family. We all get a little competitive but it's so much fun and once you have a few Mint Juleps, nobody can remember anyway. So, are you having your own party? Plans?!
