Kentucky Derby Party Primer, Part One

It's less than a month until the "Run for the Roses" and I've wanted to host a Derby Party forever.  It coincides with a horse show I like to attend so for this year at least, we're doing a fantasy Derby Party.  I hope others out there have parties to celebrate this fun event.  If not, then maybe I can inspire you.

First things first.  The invitation. A cute and clever invitation is a must.  Here are a few ideas....







Menu ideas.  Here are some great cookbooks that might give you menu ideas beyond the prerequisite Mint Julep:




I like appetizer food for a Derby Party, here are a few more ideas.... Mint Julep cupcakes!


Another Mint Julep dessert!

Etsy is a great source for cookies.  They can overnight them to you...



And this brie wheel made to look like a Derby Hat is so clever...


Table decorations are so easy for a Derby Party.  Here are few ideas....



Cute idea to number tables or do placecards:


This is an easy idea, use your old trophies:


Some personalized cups are another fun idea....


Use this as a prize for who picks the top three winners:


A wreath on your door is a must.....


  A clever idea for wine and beer...


Stayed tuned for Part Two!

  2. The Kentucky Derby and the festival both are fantastic fun and, as a lifelong Louisvillian, I welcome you to the event and to our fine city. Just keep in mind that there are some things you should do while here and some things you probably shouldn’t, at least if having fun is your motivation. If you really want fun and feel relax then book a Kentucky Derby Rentals
