Gold Horses and Red Roses for a Kentucky Derby Tablescape

Kentucky Derby Golden Tablescape

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.

Centrepiece Trophy

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.

    Wow! It is hard to believe the Kentucky Derby is almost here. Your tablescape reminds me of my grandpa the race horse expert in the family spending his time until his passing at the race course!
