Derby Time!

I LOVE horses. My whole life my parents have had horses. I grew up going to rodeos and riding horses for family nights. This year, I decided it was time to have a party for the Kentucky Derby.
What is the most famous part of the derby?

The hats of course. I whipped these out for myself, my sister-in-law, and her three girls. The white hats I got at Wal-Mart for $2.97 each. The black hat was a little bit more at $8. All the ribbon but the thick white on the black hat and the purple ribbon I already had on hand. When I looked for Derby hats for the party, they ranged between $35-$275+ per hat.
These saved me so much!!! And it was the first time I had ever done hats before.

Then, it was decided that we needed some new horses.

And the party began.


After dinner, we watched the race. We actually had the party on Sunday, even though the race was Saturday. My sister-in-law picked the winning horse.

Playing horseshoes. I love all of them in their hats. And the handsome devil in the back looks pretty good too.
Kids stick horse race. It was hilarious!!

Adults stick horse race. Classic!

I just loved this picture of Little Miss "J" in her hat and Mr. "L" looking so handsome.
He even had a pocket watch.

The Winner's Circle
Most Dapper Dude, Most Creative Hat, Best Big Hat, Prettiest Dress, and the Race Winner in the back.
