Kent mentioned having a Kentucky Derby Party when the boys are here. Coincidentally they have a show in Ottawa the same day as the Derby. A Derby Party got me thinking maybe a table setting to practice would be a great idea. Gold and Roses were the perfect answer for a Derby Tablescape.
A Derby Tablescape was the perfect excuse to create a new napkin fold and a centrepiece. Seriously, a bow tie napkin with a horse pin, just to perfect. The Rose napkin would have been appropriate also, the Derby is the Run for the Roses right? For a full dinner party I would alternate Bow Ties and Roses for the male and female guests. I know how sexist of me but for the Derby I am sticking with the appropriate stereotype Y’all.
How cute are my little trophy creations? I used some old cheap trophy’s and painted them gold. Add a few paper Roses and Carnations, a Horse and Flask.
For my take two I think I need to add some Horse shoes and bourbon bottles.
I am really hoping plans work out and we go ahead with a Kentucky Derby BBQ Party, guess I will be scheming all week.
