Talk Derby to Me Party

4:00:00 AM

This past weekend I was able to make my Derby dreams come alive. Last year, Tyler and I went to Kentucky for the Derby and it was seriously the most amazing experience! My love for the Derby inspired my new (and possibly my absolute favorite) party in a box!

The Talk Derby to Me Box is a classic mix of black, white, and red with gold accents. The boxes include a bunch of fun little decor items that will have you running for the roses! Think gold horses, glitter silverware, horseshoe cocktail stirrers, and adorable jockey silk betting cards. See, I told you it was cute! I think my favorite part of the box is the jockey silks, because my sweet loving artsy husband created them!

Here's a few pro tips that will really make the party incredible. Grab some silver mint julep cups and red roses for decor. Cut the roses a little bit shorter than the cup to create a full centerpiece. Another fun idea is to make Derby themed treats! Derby Pie (chocolate bourbon pecan pie) is one of the best recipes in the world and perfect for the dessert table. Mint Juleps and other bourbon drinks are extremely popular at the Derby, so make sure you have plenty of bottles on hand! Our favorite is Woodford Reserve! You can also add mason jars as makeshift julep cups. They are just as adorable and Southern!

The box is perfect for Derby Day and celebrating the best couple minutes in sports! In my opinion at least! I can't wait to pull out my big hat and dress up for The Derby!

  11. Love this setup and it's so cute. I've never been to the Derby, but would love to have a themed party like this.

  12. SUCH a great idea for a party! I'm obsessed with the sparkly silverware! I've never been to the Derby but my boyfriend went to a race track near our house once to bet on horses and he said it was such a fun time. But I think my favorite part would be dressing up for this party. I always love an excuse to dress up and wear a fun floppy hat ;)
