Spring is in the air and that means the Kentucky Derby is just around the corner! Today we’re talking all things Derby!
Whether you’re throwing a Kentucky Derby party, Derby inspired wedding or bridal Shower, or hosting a tent at a horserace this spring, we have you covered from the party décor, to the food, to specialty drinks, to fashion!
When I think about Derby Style, mint juleps, colorful hats, and horses come to mind! I was immediately drawn to this beautiful, hand painted invitation by Paperie Off Park. I worked with Rebecca, Paperie Off Park, to custom design the invitation to include a Derby Hat and horse with mint, pink, white and navy colors. It just says spring fun to me!
Once the invitation has been set, the next part is deciding on the party décor. A lot of the Derby Party inspiration I’ve seen is traditional colors with red, yellow, green, and blue. However, since it’s spring after all, why not use the pastel color pallet from your party décor to flowers!
I love this Kate Spade look of navy and white table runner and beautiful spring centerpiece in a silver bowls!
If you know me and my weddings and events, then you know it’s not a party without a signature drink! Mint Juleps and bourbon are a must at this Derby Garden Party!
Another image that comes to mind when hosting a Derby inspired wedding, party or bridal shower is southern food! From mini cornbread crostini to ham and southern buttermilk biscuits with spicy mustard, we got you covered! Get the details of the party décor, fashion and recipes here:

Navy and white will always be classic colors that work well with bright or pastel colors. I’m loving Kate Spade’s Charlotte Street collection!
