We’re only a week into April, and have already had our share of April showers. But these April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, right?! And with May, comes one of our favorite events…The Kentucky Derby! The Derby is a great excuse to pull out a colorful sundress, find a floppy hat, and sip on mint juleps while watching horses race! It is also the perfect theme for a 30th birthday!! For Harrison’s 30th, we helped his wife, Ashley, put together a party grand enough to celebrate both occasions. Get ready to get down and Derby, while checking out this Kentucky Derby birthday party pics including his swanky Kentucky Derby party invitations and swag!!
Party guests were treated to a mint plant as they left, so they could enjoy mint juleps at home!!
Each plant included a recipe to make the perfect mint julep!
Birthday boy Harrison, is joined by his mom and wife, all sipping on mint juleps with personalized straw tags.
Ashley and Harrison’s son (little Harrison III) is adorable and in the Derby spirit!!
