Why not do something special for Mothers Day: Host a Kentucky Derby Party
Mother’s day is a very special day and one that enables us to truly thank and pamper that person that means so much to us. With Mother’s Day taking place on May 8th, and with Memorial Day on the May 23rd, next month is shaping up to be a pretty hectic month. Indeed, May also plays host to one of the most recognised sporting events of the year – the Kentucky Derby – which also takes place over the first weekend of the month on May 7th and 8th.
With so many events taking place within the same month, people will have to ensure Mom’s special day is not overshadowed. However, combining celebrations is a great way to ensure no-one misses out and to also ease the burden on the purse strings!
Taking Mom to the Kentucky Derby would make for an enjoyable and memorable Mother’s Day Treat, which is sure to prove a huge success – there really is no better occasion for every woman to express their inner Southern Belle!
Mom could even be treated to a new hat with hats being a long-established fashion tradition at the Kentucky Derby, with the belief that they bring good luck to the wearer. In particular many wear classic “Southern Belle” wide-brimmed hats decorated and adorned with flowers, feathers, ribbons and bows of all manner of colors to express individuality and style.
Whilst not everyone will be able to treat mom to a day at the races, something simple and enjoyable such as hosting a Derby Day Party at home in Mom’s honor could prove hugely popular as well as fun for the whole family – just make sure to take on the hosting duties also!
Taking some inspiration from the Derby itself such as ensuring everyone attending the party wears a hat could prove entertaining and a sense of celebration to the occasion. You could also reward guests’ efforts with competitions for categories such as ‘the biggest hat’, ‘the craziest hat’ or ‘the best derby-inspired hat’.
Bringing the Kentucky Derby Home couldn’t be easier than gathering together with friends and family to throw the ultimate party, BBQ or picnic. By running a sweepstake and grabbing some food and wine, along with a trusty WineWeaver aerator, it’s easy to host the perfect Derby at home party.
