Kentucky Derby Themed Birthday Party
We lost our original blog post from Cohen’s first birthday party a couple years ago…it was just so cute that I had to write another! Cohen’s birthday party tends to fall on the day of the Kentucky Derby, so what better theme to use for his first birthday? The Kentucky Derby themed party was such a fun idea, I can’t help but share the details.
The food was part of the plan in full southern style – complete with bourbon bbq pulled pork sliders, kentucky hot browns, benedictine dip, cole slaw and baked beans.
We created the invitation, signs, ribbons and birthday banner with preppy details to fit the kentucky derby theme. We did a paper banner over the window and super cute little cupcake toppers. The gift bags for the kids had adorable little bows on them and were filled with bubbles, toy trumpets, crayons & paper bow ties and bow tie suckers to tie into the theme as well.
We also incorporate red roses in the decor – it is the Kentucky Derby after all. Hope you enjoy the photos and they inspire you to create a fun Kentucky Derby themed birthday party for your little one!
How cute is he???
