Derby Party Ideas

Derby Day is right around the corner!  The first Saturday in May is a wonderful opportunity to host a gathering with a decidely feminine, Southern edge.  Here are some of my favorite ideas from around the web:

Dish & Drink

Benedictine Sandwich

Beaten Biscuits & Ham

Baby Hot Brown (about halfway down the page)

Non-Alcoholic Mock Mint Julep

Melon Mint Julep Slush


Of course, it's not Derby Day without big hats, roses, and a nice slice of Derby pie!

Dessert & Decor

Bourbon Balls

Mint Julep Cupcakes (decorating idea...no recipe)

Derby Pie

Julep Cup Floral Arrangement

Easy Rose Centerpiece
