kentucky derby bridal shower

I love designing event boxes for special occasions across the country but I especially get excited to plan a party in my own city! 

Terri asked for my help with her Kentucky Derby Bridal Shower for her friend, Alyssa. What a fun theme! This red and burlap shower featured red roses and horse accents.

Happy Everything Events had a ball putting this event together on the most perfect spring day in DC!

Of course, mint juleps were the signature cocktail of the shower.

Guests picked their mason jar based on the horse named straw flags!

I loved the red rose cupcakes!

Matching food signs labeled the southern faire.

Simple and modern red rose arrangements complemented the decor.

The bamboo silverware wraps featured this bridal shower's logo of a red rose and a horseshoe.

This small "derby" pennant banner was a nice addition to the party decor.

The "alyssa + atif" pennant banner fit perfectly on the fence for the mostly outdoor bridal shower.

"Mint to Be"--As favors, guests took home a potted mint plant with a mint julep recipe tied on.

Congrats Alyssa and Atif!
