kentucky derby party inspiration

i love hosting theme parties, and the next one on deck is for the kentucky derby! my brainstorming so far:
  • decor: pennants, roses in trophy vases, horseshoes;
  • food: pies & small bites;
  • drinks: mint juleps, of course, and sweet tea vodka + lemonade;
  • attire: big hats! i'm setting up a hat decorating station for the ladies. any suggestions for the guys? bow tie making?
if you have any brilliant ideas for this, let me know in the comments!!

happy friday! :)

Omigosh this sounds so fun!! My sorority alum group is hosting a Kentucky Derby party in the city and I'm so excited! I can't wait to get a big hat for the occasion! Can't wait to hear all about how yours turns out!
