It’s time to get prepared for the Kentucky Derby! It’s by far, one of Photo Booth of the Stars’ favorite events to celebrate. The fashion, mint juleps, roses, and of course the beautiful thoroughbreds – there is so much to love! We’ve put together the ultimate inspiration that will have you ready to join in on the festivities!

This Rose Derby Wreath makes the perfect entrance as your guests enter the Derby Party – we love it! Stacy over at She’s Kinda Crafty made this beauty by cutting a styrofoam wreath form into the shape of a U. She glued pretty ribbon along the sides and back to camouflage the foam, and hot glued faux roses all along the front of the wreath. Awesome idea and it turned out beautifully.
Stacy made her gorgeous wreath to present to the hostess of a Derby Party. What a great gift idea!
We found the above picture along with several lovely party tips for the Kentucky Derby over on Homes.com. We adore the centerpiece idea shown up above – especially that moss mat runner! The little toy horses are from the Dollar Tree and are wearing a piece of cloth with attached felt number stuck to them. It’s a stunning centerpiece arrangement and we can’t wait to mimic it! You can head over to check it out, as well as all of the great ideas for your spread by clicking HERE.

The Mint Julep is THE traditional cocktail enjoyed at the Kentucky derby – it’s only right to include them at your party! Guests of all ages can ‘wet their whistles’ with these Mock Mint Juleps that we found on Taste of Home. It’s always fun to honor a signature drink at an event, and it’s even better to have an alternative non-alcoholic option for people to enjoy as well. You can check out the recipe for the mock-tails by clicking HERE.
