Inspiration Board Wednesday: Kentucky Derby

One of my lifelong goals is to make it to the Kentucky Derby.  Just once.  In honor of this weekends big race, I created this sweet board.  I really combined a subtle Gatsby vibe with this theme by incorporating the pretty vintage cloche hats and dainty boots and included some sweet southern detail, mint juleps infused with strawberries or peaches.  The show ribbons are by far my favorite thing about this board and I think they would make really unique seating cards for your guests  {there are so many tutorials out there for making your own}.  Lots of lush florals in peaches and pinks add a really luxe feel to this otherwise simple board.  And the icing on the cake would be to use vintage trophy cups to display your florals!
