Talk Derby to Me
There are few things more sacred to a born and bred Kentucky girl than the Kentucky Derby. It is the one time of year that all eyes are on my home state for the most exciting two minutes in sports. Oh, how I love the beautiful horses, the fabulous hats, the stunning roses and, of course, the bourbon…y’all….lots and lots of bourbon!
I used bright ribbons to mimic the colors of the jockey’s silks and every Southern gentleman must have monogrammed rocks glasses.
Mint Juleps are the traditional drink of choice for any Derby gathering. An engraved pewter cup and crushed ice are a must!
Seersucker and red roses are the perfect choice for your table decor then add a big ol’ hat and some horseshoes.
Of course a world famous Hot Brown is always on the menu, it’s a favorite on Derby Day.
