Elizabeth Duncan Events :: Kentucky Derby Party
Spring has finally arrived, and if you live in Kentucky you know exactly what that means. It’s time for the Kentucky Derby!
The Kentucky Derby is a horse race held annually on the first Saturday in May. It’s a time to dress up and party with friends while celebrating Kentucky racing traditions. No Derby Day is complete without fancy attire, big hats, betting, and good ‘ole Kentucky bourbon!
Good News! You don’t have to make the trip to Churchill Downs to celebrate the Derby. It’s just as fun to host your own party with friends. We teamed up with Jen Guiler at Elizabeth Duncan Events to bring you some at-home derby party inspiration.
The Kentucky Derby is a long-standing tradition that dates back to 1875. So, if you’re going to host a successful Derby party, you must keep to tradition..but that isn’t to say you can’t add your own personal flare to it! We switched out those red roses for some white and coral beauties and created a spin on the traditional bourbon cocktails you might find in the Grandstand. We were inspired by bright colors, fun girl time, and big derby hats that led us to create an at-home party. This was so much fun to create! Why can’t the Derby be a year-round event?
Special thanks to AJ’s Casuals for the beautiful attire!
