Of course I never take as many photos as I had hoped to! We used our Buffalo Trace half a bourbon barrel to hold ice with bottled drinks and I completely forgot to snap a pic. Oh well. Here are some highlights from the afternoon:
|"Louisville Shortbread" horseshoe cookie favors|
|a spread of Kentucky specialties and Derby fare |
(in addition to burgoo we had cooking on the stove)
|Derby Pies and desserts on the dining room mantel|
|mint for the juleps|
|playing with the chicks|
|vintage decanter and Derby glasses|
|me and my friend, Heather|
