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
Southern Mini Cups
Lemon Dill Shrimp
Cheese and Crackers
Fruit Salsa with cinnamon chips
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!
Hi I'm Erin!! I married my Mr. in 2010 and love having the title of Mrs. In 2011 I recieved another title of Momma when we welcomed our daughter Harper to the world. Hearing my daughter laugh, sipping diet coke and pinot grigio, and traveling with my hubby are just a few of my favorite things!
