We had a wonderful time at the Denver Derby Party over the weekend.  I don't think we could have celebrated the Kentucky Derby in a better way.  This party is the second largest Derby party, next to Louisville's Churchill Downs, now that is saying something.  The event had such a glamorous vibe, from the plush white couches and chairs to the exquisite chandeliers. 

Here is a glimpse of the Denver Derby festivities via my iPhone... 

The event was held just outside of the Denver Performing Arts Center.

My first ever Mint Julep!

And this hat... one word, marvelous!

Our (and everyone else's) favorite hat of the event!  She had real birds in the cage, and to make sure they were hydrated, a little water bowl.  She had to wear a chin strap because it was so big.  It was over the top and pure Derby perfection! 

Next year I hope to be even more involved, as a member of the planning committee.  

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week.

  4. Absolutely LOVE everything about your look! I'm curious how you added the flowers to your hat, and what kind of flowers you purchased. I'm looking to do something very similar for a Kentucky Derby themed party I'm attending this weekend! Any help or direction would really be appreciated!
