Belmont Bash

Saturday's test of speed at the Preakness, in the mud and slop no less, is proof that American Pharoah may indeed beat the odds and win the Belmont. There's been so much buzz about this horse even before he won his last three races in style.  So, it is on the Belmont and why not have a Belmont Bash and celebrate in style?

Start with these invitations which can be found on Etsy:

The perfect background music, pre-race, is New York, New York.  You'd need Frank singing it in the background.  I love it when the horses parade on the track while someone famous sings.....

This would look great on your table. See it here.

Cookies anyone?  See these here.

A great wreath for the door to great your guests:
See it here.

Or this one...

And I would use these glasses.  These were made by Old Morgantown Glass in the 1940's for Gulfstream Park in Florida.  You can find them often on Ebay.
I like these from Horse and Hound too.  See them here.

These linens are perfect! See them here.

 And this would be a great addition to your table!  See it here.
Looking forward to the Belmont in three long weeks!


  1. Well, I would love to see a Triple Crown winner, but I would also love to see Mr. Fipke's Tale of Verve win. It is a tough choice for me, but I am with Chuck. He is a fantastic person and such a keen equine enthusiast. It is hard to not love him :) "Pearce"

  2. American Pharoah is one of the most impressive runners I have ever's just hard to get behind the connections. I am really tired of the Baffert "Bode" show. Guess he's forgotten he has 4 other kids that he dumped when he married Jill.
    Love your choices for tableware--I am a huge fan of Horse and Hound !

  3. Thought you might appreciate this latest collection at One Kings Lane titled A Gracious Virginia Estate. Cute!

  4. Thank you so much for featuring Pink Door Wreaths in your post! We're from Louisville so the Kentucky Derby and all things related are in our blood.
