Derby Day Brunch




Tomorrow is Derby Day!

The oldest continuous sporting event in America
dating back to 1875.





That's a long time!
And it all takes place in 
TWO MINUTES




Remarkable.
Exciting.
Legendary.





So tomorrow we will have 
a little Derby Day brunch
 to honor the event. 

I set the table with a blue ribbon theme.






The beautiful moss-covered handmade
running horse topiary is from my friend, Carolyn,
who has a shop on Etsy called Villa Topiary.

I have posted about her before 
and have mentioned her on
 my Instagram posts as well. 
So talented.
Please check out 
her items for sale HERE.





Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy your Kentucky Derby Day.
Hope you pick the winning horse!

Love the Derby and your blog. A gentle correction: The Upperville Colt and Horse Show has been in continuous existence since 1853.
