Incorporate the color of the red rose garland that the winner recieves by adding red bows to your table setting. Use cake stands to add height and create demention to the treats that you are serving. Serve small bits that add an elegant touch such as mini cupcakes.

Another fun element you could encorporate you be a the Kentucky Derby’s offical drink, the Mint Julep! Have a Mint Julep Bar at your party that guest can help themsevles to. Place out fancy cups with all the ingredients for the Mint Juleps, Have vases with red roses in them to create that derby feel.

So have some pals over for some great food and drinks and of course to root for your favorite horse! And don’t forget your hat!
