...if there is one thing I love, it's a horse race. And, the one sporting event I never ever miss is The Kentucky Derby. So, I am totally looking forward to the 137th Derby at Churchill Downs tomorrow. What better excuse to break out a big hat and sip a mint julep or two than a derby party. Here are a few of my favorite things to get Derby chic this year and a few ideas to bring to the host. And what would derby day be without the recipe for a perfect mint julep.
The Essentials- 1. Traditional Mint Julep Cups 2. Horse Head Cocktail Stirrers 3. Diane von Furstenberg Shoe 4. Veuve Cliquot Carrying Case to keep the bubbly chilled 5. Oversized Hat 6. Horseshoe Bottle Opener 7. Hermes Enamel Bangles
