The perfect bridal shower favor for our theme?? Hats, of course and we made them ourselves for under $3.00 a hat. Learn how to decorate hats and display them for your own bridal shower. These would be so adorable for other themed parties or even a great idea for a creative Derby Dolls Halloween costume!
Look at how cute our Derby Grandmothers and Ladies look in their colorful hats!
even set up a game stand, Derby Dollars! Each guest received 3 Derby
Dollars. We had buckets labeled for each horse in the race. The guests
put their 3 picks for the horses of their choice into the appropriate
bucket. At the end of the race, we drew two Derby Dollars from the
buckets representing the horses that came in 1st, 2nd and 3rd and
awarded prizes. So fun, everyone gathered to watch the race. Our niece
served as the "Event Bookie" giving out the dollars and sheets with the
odds for each horse in the race. See how we did our Derby Dollars game here.
Our menu was so simple..a buffet of sandwiches, salads, fruits and pastas. We served lemonade, iced tea as well as sangria, wine and beer. The dessert table couldn't have been cuter. A shout out to my creative friend Patti, who found these adorable mini cupcake stands for her daughter's baby shower. She lent them to me for our use and we made dozens of mini-cupcakes and displayed them the same way! My sister ordered personalized MnM's. We made chocolate dipped strawberries and platters of homemade cookies and our family favorite: cake balls. See how to make cake balls. I think it was much better than a sheet cake and such a pretty presentation!

It was such a nice evening that the kids opened their gifts out on the patio! One of the most creative presents they received was the gift of the Red Plate Tradition.. a beautiful red china plate with You Are Special painted around the rim.
