Derby Party Guide

The biggest weekend in the bluegrass, the Kentucky Derby, is just a few weeks away. Even if you won't be sitting atop millionaire's row, you still have just enough time to throw together a fabulous Derby gathering for your friends and family!  Have your guests dress in their derby best and move the party outdoors if the weather permits.  Southern games like cornhole and croquet will keep your guests entertained throughout the afternoon up until the races.  Don't forget to have some type of drawing or betting pool for the big race (a giant chalkboard is perfect for displaying the field of horses)!  A mint julep or bourbon bar is another fun touch that you can set up with glasses, coasters, stirs, and ingredients.  I've also gathered some of my favorite southern recipes that are perfect for derby day (hot browns and derby pie are a must!)  Take a look at some of my favorite products, inspirations, and ideas below:
