Kentucky Derby Party Details:
This is what Katie said about planning/styling the shower- “I loved styling this Kentucky Derby Bridal Shower. The colors were plum, lavender, lime green and gray. The focus was on horses and roses because of the famous run for the roses at the Kentucky Derby. My husband was sweet enough to build cupcake grandstands that surrounded the horseshoe shaped cake topped with horse cake pops. Mint julep cupcakes were served with purple roses and a mint leaf. Beautiful rose cookies dusted with silver, lavender French macarons with a rose on top, and chocolate covered Oreos were also served.
Plum and lavender colored roses were added to the rag bunting to look like winners ribbons! The backdrop was a Bride to Be banner and a hand-crafted horseshoe shaped coffee filter wreath. The coffee filters were dyed matching colors of the theme, dried, and then cut and made into roses. Such a fun DIY project! Tutorial available on The Pretty Party Shoppe.
A Mint Julep Bar was created with fresh mint, ginger syrup, and mint syrup. Plus a pretty little lime green paper straw to sip it from. It was a fun way to create a derby drink your own way”!
