Party Pics

The Kentucky Derby themed wedding shower was successful beyond my wildest expectations. 

Yes. My cows showed up dressed in their racing silks. 

Don't ask. It's complicated.  

And....we enjoyed mint juleps made from real mint. Aren't the little pots cute? We each got one as a party favor.

Mmmmm. Cake and pie and red velvet cookies......

And there were hats, hats, and more fabulous hats. The bride's hat was especially fabulous.

Everyone -- absolutely everyone -- had a fabulous hat.

All this fabulousness was courtesy of my fabulous friends Naomi, Terese, Susan, Emsie, Karen, and Sarah, whom I cannot even begin to thank enough.

But I can try.

Thank you, dear friends.

Cows dressed up for the derby? You guys just crack me up with your creativeness and imaginations. I absolutely love the hats. I'm sure you had a great time, Julia.

Um.....did you say Red Velvet Cookies? Send me the recipe! PS - the picture looks like Red Velvet Whoopee Pies which would also make me scream for a recipe!
