    Default Derby Day Party Ideas?

    Our girls decided they wanted have a Kentucky Derby Day party....which is only a few weeks away! Other than mint juleps, big hats and red roses, I'm at a loss. I'll be searching online tonight for ideas, but was curious to hear if anyone had suggestions? We plan to invite a few families, so we'll have kiddos and adults. Thanks!

    Sounds like you got it to me....

    Hot browns would be the only other thing you could add. I don't celebrate Derby, but.... maybe we should start.

    Years ago DH and I owned a coffeehouse and we celebrated Derby Day, just because a good friend was from KY and it was fun to do. We used to whip up a special juice for the occasion, something with mint (of course) and honeydew. I can't for the life of me remember what else we put it in, my DH just made it up, but it was a huge hit. We'd bring in our TV from home and watch the race...it was really fun. Thanks for the reminding me of that!

    We're full speed ahead. The girls are making handpainted cups for everyone - with a horse of course! Of course! Recipes are being approved: several different drinks; the hot browns; cucumber sandwiches (along with pb&j). 1st, 2nd, 3rd place ribbons have been purchased. (I love Target's $1.00 bins!) A few different betting games. (Yeah, we're teaching our children to gamble!) Some horse galloping game - which we haven't finalized yet. We're hoping grandparents come through with the red roses. Should be fun.
