And they’re off to the alter! It’s a Kentucky Derby inspired bridal shower!
Along with the celebration of a July wedding, horses, hats and bourbon made this theme so much fun to create! Of course we had the essential and traditional mint julep along with horseshoe sugar cookies, a beautiful Derby inspired cake, a stunning bride-to-be and so much more!
The mint julep is the iconic drink of the Kentucky Derby. It is typically is served in a silver julep cup for a traditional presentation, but in our case we thought a mason jar would do just fine. Along with the traditional mint julep we added a fun twist by spicing it up a bit, a jalapeño pineapple julep! They were so delicious and the girls loved them!
As some of you may know style is such a huge part of the Kentucky Derby. Lots of colors, patterns and over the top hats make up for one heck of a race, or in our case one heck of a party! The girls attending the shower had so much fun getting all dolled up in their Derby best! What a fun excuse to get together with girlfriends and celebrate such a fun day as well as a dear friend of ours! The decor was made up of silver, light pinks, roses, black, white, and gold accents. We had a few DIY projects that really help personalize this event.
Anna, we are so thrilled for you and your beautiful bride-to-be! Thank you for letting us be apart of this exciting season in your life! Cheers!
