Derby Fever!

We are throwing the most DARLING Derby Party tomorrow…and here is a sneak peek…

How gorgeous are these southern silver revere bowls, overflowing with vibrant jockey silks colored roses?  The tables will vary in color throughout the tent, and are all set with flowing black and white racing check linens.

I honestly cannot decide which of these delectable colors is my favorite…crimson red, vivid yellow, bright orange…the entire tent is going to come alive with gorgeous bursts of racing hues.

And the food…ah the food!  It is bite after sumptuous bite of southern sure fire Kentucky favorites.  The Henry Bain Sauce, the traditional Burgoo (like southern chili with three types of meats) served over cheddar mashed potatoes, the Kentucky Hot Browns, the fully loaded Mac n Cheese bar with a dozen toppings like grilled peppers and onions, balsamic marinated roasted vegetables, succotash, and more.

And don’t get me started on the Pie Bar for dessert…Lovely is baking Derby mini pies right now…a few doors down…as we speak.  We will serve each with fresh fruit chutney, and a big scoop of Mint (my favorite), Vanilla or Chocolate Gelato.  YUM!

We are off to the races!
