Party Idea: Kentucky Derby Fascinator Making Party

“The Kentucky Derby is more than a horse race. It is a mood, an excitement and an atmosphere that create a culture around the track. The events and clothing tied to that culture can be traced back to 1875. Many of the seasonal festivities historically kicked off with black-tie charity balls and a Derby day hasn’t passed at the track without a celebration of festive hats.” From

This year the Kentucky Derby falls on the weekend of my birthday. What a better reason to have a little get together and some DIY fashion fun. Make virgin (or not) mint juleps and craft some Derby worthy fascinators using gorgeous feathers and beautiful silk flowers.
