Are you down for a good time at the Derby? The Kentucky Derby is not just about horse racing. It’s about the magic that makes the first Saturday in May...
unique in sports and fashion. On this day, people come together to honor a long-standing Southern tradition. Kayla, our Creative Director, honored the arrival of her second niece with a baby shower that would appeal to both men and women. This couples shower had to bring it – since most men NEVER want to attend this type of event! The horseshoe and red roses of the Kentucky Derby inspired a clean, modern design for this baby sprinkle. Custom metal invitations with a horseshoe and rose design were sent in red rose-lined black envelopes. Guests arrived to the event sporting their derby style with fascinators and bowties. Red paper flower petals were signed by guests, and these would be made into red flower buds to adorn the framed invitation. Guests enjoyed a refreshing berry mint julep and were seated in their assigned rooms – one for the gentlemen and another for the ladies. After enjoying a Southern-inspired three course meal, the men indulged in a whiskey, scotch, and bourbon tasting, while the women were busy making custom hobby stick horses to add to the baby’s toy stable. This event was a hit for all, and exactly what Kayla hoped it would be. Until next time…
Happy Mother's Day,
