Kentucky Derby Party Ideas

With April coming to an end, the Kentucky Derby is only days away. I’ve always been interested in the food and fashion of the South because it’s so different from what I grew up with in Seattle. I love the wide-brimmed hats, colorful dresses and monogrammed accessories that you see at the derby. This event gives me the perfect excuse to embrace these fun styles and throw a Southern soirée. These are some party ideas that I came across while perusing Pinterest. I love the drinks and décor! Let the race begin :)
