kentucky derby party | 2016

last weekend, during our visit to greenville, we attended an annual kentucky derby party 
our friends, alissa and derek, put it on every year
it was above and beyond!!! 
and lots of fun i wanted to share...
the spread of food was all just so good!
i thought the way they set up the bidding this year was so adorable
we won $16! yay 
the winner was crowned! 
he loves horsey races, too! 
the veggie bar was super cute 
alissa created this wall using her instagram photos 
she used printsagram to do so 
and i fell in love with their 5x5 photos
the feel and quality of them are awesome
have you ever printed your photos? 
used printsagram?
...i really want to do so soon...
i love the idea of having a family instagram wall in our home 
to change out periodically 
it's $12 for 24 prints 
{and really good quality} 
my little derby boy 
this was the coolest radio! 
it plays your iPhone music and had the best sound
it's made from an old tuba horn 
love from momma 
and dada 
i love this girl! 
my outfit details: 
cuff: forever 21
fascinator: etsy
the bar was oh. so. cute.
look at that metal crate with champagne glasses in it
the dispenser is mint julep mix! 
she is the best auntie to parks
she helps me so much and you can just tell how much she loves my son
it melts my heart 
heart all of these people!! 
adored this girl's hat!
the my little pony was the perfect touch 
with my love 
we watched the race outside on a large tv 
quiche, salami, a yummy cheese board 
big parks + little parks 
just the sweetest guy ever! 
... and his first time at a party with another parks! 
so many yard games 
mint julep bar 
thank you so much for inviting us
we had the best time!
and appreciate the heart and soul that went into the event
