Kentucky Derby

This post is long over due but better late than never!
My friend Frances and I were talking awhile back about how we both want to go to the Kentucky Derby someday. With her birthday right around the corner we decided to throw a Birthday/Kentucky Derby party at my house it was GREAT! Did I mention I love to ENTERTAIN!

(the picture above is of the entry way and bar area)
Color Theme: Pink and Green
Signature Drink of the Night: Dirty Shirley(a shirley temple with Vodka) and Derby Tea (a twist on ice tea with basil, oranges and BOURBON

(Easy way to add decor pictures on twine and the dining room table)
Menu: Antipasta Skewers
            Strawberry Bruschetta
            Southern Mini Cups
             Lemon Dill Shrimp
             Cheese and Crackers
             Fruit Salsa with cinnamon chips
            Mini Meatballs
            Cake Balls
            Lemon Squares

We did a really fun betting system that everyone got involved with and had loads of fun out on the deck and danced the night away in D-Port!
