Do you celebrate the DERBY?! {Tips for how you can}

The past few years Drew and I have hosted a Derby party at our house. It is one of my favorite traditions that we've started as a married couple. This year, however, one of my best friends is getting married on Derby day (May 3rd) so we will be celebrating in a different way. I'm hanging up my hat this year, but will jump back in the saddle next year. Ha. Derby or not, it is going to be a fun weekend!

Do you celebrate the Derby?! If you need some tips for how to host your own Derby party click here for recipes, activities and of course outfits!See below for some inspiration...
And I promise to fill you in on where the heck I've been very soon!

So fun, I really want to do this one year. I usually have the Pig, this year the Indy Mini, which tends to conflict with Derby weekend.

So I think I'm going to come to your Derby party next year! Surely you'll have one, right?! 'Cause you guys always do. And it looks like so much fun! :)
