I have always celebrated the Derby and love everything about it. The food, the drinks, the outfits, the races. In the past, Drew and I have thrown our own Derby party, but this year our friends, Brad and Ashley were throwing one and we gladly attended as guests this year! We had so much fun!
They had a cute drink station set up with Mint Juleps and another drink I had never had called a Lily. Both were delicious. Aiden got all dressed up for the occassion and was infatuated with all the pretty ladies in their floppy hats.
I hope Aiden doesn't mind matching his Mommy. My stylish little man.
Our fabulous host and hostess! They went all out with amazing Derby food, drinks and wager boards so we could bet on the races. It was a beautiful day to be outside enjoying friends and watching the races.
And on Derby day I make my grandma's Derby pie. It is by far my favorite kind of pie to indulge in! YUM! You can find the recipe here.
