Derby Day Recap!

Things got pretty busy last week while cooking and prepping for Derby Day. Lots of cooking, grocery shopping and re-decorating were involved. I'm a very lucky lady though-- I had a few great people to help me with all of the last minute details!

One of these days take pictures of the entire process AND the event itself. Each year I get a few more shots in. But looking back I missed so much!

Here are just  a few of the highlights!

The Oaks Lily, Mini Derby Pies, Spiked Mint Lemonade

All I could think about during this weekend is how amazing my husband is to enjoy throwing parties, dressing up, and decorating as much as I do. He helped clean the house, landscaped, did laundry and so much more to make this a successful gathering.

                 I failed to take pictures of the food (oops!) but here's what you missed--
Pimento Cheese, Beer Cheese, Baby Hot Browns, Macaroni and Cheese, Fruit Kabobs,                                                  Celery and Beer Cheese, Ham and Biscuits, Boston Butt, Bourbon Chex Mix, & Corn Bread! Yum!
