The Kentucky Derby is the perfect reason to throw a party! From food and drink to great décor, we’ll help you bring the fun and spectacle of the Derby home to your guests. So break out the mint juleps and put on your hat, it’s time to start planning your perfect Derby party.

Remember, you do not need to spend a lot of money.  A lot of these items I found at Party City, Michaels and Target.

1. Kentucky Derby Dessert Bar – Who doesn’t love a dessert bar?  Add all your favorite desserts from pie to derby themed cookies.  This is the perfect treat for adults and kiddos alike.  We found a lot of inspiration on Pinterest.

2.  Cocktails – It’s time for mint juleps!  To make the drinks fun for guests we suggest serving your cocktails out of mason jars.

3. Decorations – Try the above pictured “Run for Roses” centerpiece.  All you need is roses and spray paint a toy plastic horse gold and you have the perfect centerpiece for your party.

4. Games – We found these games on http://www.southernliving.com.  Since the actual race is so short these games were perfect for both kids and adults.
