Wow, what a beautiful bridal shower! There are so many darling ideas and details that are just priceless; from the darling cupcakes to the Kentucky Derby ribbon banner! This party is too cute and would work perfectly for not only a bridal shower, but a birthday party as well.

My favorite Kentucky Derby party ideas and elements from this lovely event are:

  • The cute cupcakes garnished with fondant purple roses and mint leaves
  • The darling Kentucky Derby ribbon banner
  • The cute yogurt parfaits
  • The cute horse shoe wreath used as a backdrop
  • The cute horse cake pops
  • The cute mint julep bar
  • The fun cupcake grandstands
  • The darling purple rose cookies
  • and MORE!

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 winner’s 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”!

        I’m throwing a shower for my niece on the same day as the Kentucky derby. I love the post you have for this.I would like to know where you can buy all the table decorations such as the rose ring, toppers that say “bride to be” and “congrats”, the purple stream of ribbons. I looked on kara shop and can’t find any of it. Please let me know.

        Thanks
