Kentucky Derby party

Run for the Roses- Kentucky Derby Inspired Party

This past weekend we were able to watch and celebrate the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby.  Living in Louisville, Kentucky for three years, we fell in love with the Derby. This is my way of keeping a little bit of the Derby and Kentucky with me wherever I call home. What can I say, I left a piece of my heart in Kentucky. Kentucky Fried Chicken/Kentucky Derby party Hot Brown sliders

Printable tags by PinkPolkaDotChair were used on the utensils and on the Julep jars by Libbey.  Also, adding embellishments to the striped party straws .  I used a continual color scheme of red, black, and silver to tie everything together.
