Tomorrow is the 2016 Kentucky Derby and in celebration of the annual Run for the Roses, I’ve partnered with Stella Artois Cidre to throw an amazing dinner party! I was so excited to get some of my favorite ladies together to wear giant hats and pretty dresses. Amelia and her husband Mark, ChristieSylvia, Damien and I were all part of the festivities.

To prepare, I got some excellent inspiration on Pinterest and got to work. First, I order toy horses which I spray painted gold a la this post and printed out the signage. Then, I enlisted Christie, for the beautiful floral arrangements; she’s a pro! Finally, I ordered yummy food and dessert from Forage to compliment our Stella Artois Cidre. I requested the ladies wear dresses and the hats and we we’re ready to roll. It was a night full of laughter, music and race bets. Man, I hope my horse wins! I’m rooting for Oscar Nominated because of course I’m rooting for a horse named Oscar Nominated!!! Who you rooting for?

Happy Friday! Enjoy tomorrow’s Kentucky Derby!

    Absolutely love the decor here! Can I ask what you used to edit these photos, and if it was Lightroom, do you use a VSCO preset? They came out gorgeous!
