Jun13 Off to the Races 2013
This Horse Racing themed birthday party is so unique and fun, I’m in love. Any excuse I can have to wear an oversized hat and get dressed up, I’m in! I think my favorite detail are those little Derby Pies. Yum!
Here’s some details from the designer:
“In planning the classic 1st birthday celebration, I wanted to create a party that appealed to both adults and children. Adults love horse races and children love ponies, so what a more perfect marriage than an “Off to the Races” birthday affair? This theme became even more fabulous when held in coordination with televised coverage of some of the most popular races. Dads could watch, moms could sip sweet tea, and babies could play on their rocking horses.
We decided to mix southern favorites like derby pie and sweet tea with a modern popcorn bar. Children could be interactive in creating the perfect popcorn to-go mix with the popcorn bar. Peanuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows, peanut butter chips, and M&Ms were just a few of the endless tasty possibilities!
The table was complete with a chocolate pink rosette cake from the local grocery store. This decision kept the party affordable, put a younger twist on the classic red rose decor, and was extra messy for Ella’s cake smash. What a yummy 1st birthday for a darling little girl!”
