Flowers: Hobby Lobby
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...

|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.
