Kentucky Derby Birthday Party

A month ago, we celebrated Stella's 4th birthday. We threw the party during the Kentucky Derby so we rented a pony for the kids to ride and made mint juleps to brave the heat. Once we were ready for some a.c., we all headed indoors to cheer on I'll Have Another. Here are pictures from the party...





These popcorn cones were a fun project. I took two medium sized UPS boxes and spray painted them white. Then Jeff drilled 12 holes in each. The cones are just paper party hats turned upside down with the strings removed (make sure yours also have no staples...I don't think they make them like that anymore, though).

Looks like a lovely party and what a great idea! I may have to steal that next year....and I think Maddie and Harry have been on those ponies recently at the UPUMC carnival! They were a hit. Everytime I come into the showroom I want to pop in and say hi but I feel like a stalker!

So precious! Jett's bday always falls on the Masters so I totally relate. Love the Derby theme and the pink haired pony. Better start her Derby hat collection now!
