Tablescape: Talk Derby to Me

Posted by Sara Chinnock on


The Kentucky Derby is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and if you can't go this year, why not throw a fantastic viewing party at your home? 

One of the best things about the Kentucky Derby is its vibrant history. There are so many ways to host a memorable Derby party in style! You can find inspiration anywhere, from the horse stables to the Winner's Circle. If you want inspiration for your Derby party, check out these tips to create a stylish and festive tablescape. 

Red Roses:

Turn the race's iconic red roses into a clever table centerpiece. Place the horse in the middle of the vase or centerpiece container covered with white and/or red roses. Small details can make a huge difference. Try to add small yet powerful accents to elevate the overall look of your tablescape.

There is a saying, "A beautifully set table is the perfect canvas for a delicious meal," so set the tone for the event with eye-catching table arrangements.

Show Your Inner Southerner

Set a table like a Southerner. Southerners love finding an excuse to host a formal party, and Derby Day is the perfect alibi! Aside from ensuring the food is good, the table should set the bar for what is bound to be a fun and memorable gathering. So, break out your fancy plates, silverware, and unique antique pieces to mix and match your place setting. 

In Style

Celebrate Derby Day in style with a deluxe charcuterie board so everyone can help themselves throughout the party. Not to mention they always look so pretty and luxurious! Pair that with a vintage bar cart to go with the theme and complete it with plenty of Kentucky bourbon, mint, and ice — it's not the Kentucky Derby without a mint julep!

With these three simple tips, you can bring the spirit of the Kentucky Derby into your home and experience a true Southern-style celebration.
