kENTUCKY DERBY PARTY

Deanna, of Mirabelle Creations, has lived in Kentucky all of her life and has grown-up attending and now hosting Derby Parties!  She says that, as a child, her favorite part of the race was watching the winner accept the rose garland.  Deanna used the roses as her inspiration for this beautiful party and the beautiful party printables that she designed. 

The dessert table that Deanna designed is full of traditional Derby Treats- with a twist!  Bourbon Balls are a must and are given a fresh look by making them Bourbon Ball Pops!

Add a ribbon to the lollipop stick for an instant and easy way to decorate them!

Deanna also made traditional Derby Pie a little different by making Derby Pie Cupcakes~ she added pecans and chocolate chips to the cake batter and then topped the cupcakes with brown sugar buttercream frosting with mint chocolate chips and pecan pieces!

Deanna's gorgeous cupcake toppers add the perfect touch to the homemade cupcakes~ and I love how she used her designs on candy bar wrappers, too!

The color scheme was carried throughout the dessert table by simply adding candies in coordinating colors~

Deanna also had jockey silk cookies made- and she added a red rose using a fruit roll-up! 

The rose theme was also used on the dessert table by incorporating rose meringues.  They are beautiful!

What a fantastic party, Deanna!  I love the elegant details mixed with just a touch of rustic!  Just like the Derby itself!

Deanna is offering FREE PRINTABLES for her DERBY COLLECTION!  How generous!  Add her designs to your party and enjoy the races!  Find the Free Downloads here
