I recently helped do a Kentucky Derby bridal shower for my sister. It was hosted at a local Tex-Mex restaurant in San Antonio, TX called Canyon Cafe (http://www.canyoncafe.com/ ). I made the M moss initial and mini derby hats that went on the sign in table. I also made a bunting banner.
I also created the centerpieces. I bought the glass vases from the Dollar Tree (www.dollartree.com) and the white frames are from Ikea (www.ikea.com) . I wrapped the square glass vase with ribbon and the cylinder vase with craft paper and raffia. I designed the "Keep Calm and Derby On" and "Lucky in Love" signs. I bought fresh flowers the day of the shower and floating tea lights. For the sign in table, one of my sister's bridesmaids created a "Date Night" Sign In. People write in their favorite date night idea on a craft stick for the couple. My sister's Maid of Honor also made Peanut Butter Kentucky Derby Pops in the shape of derby hats! These were the shower favors for the guest. We also made the shower prizes for the games. One was a wine tag for a Apple Flavored Wine, and the other prizes were gift baskets containing wine glasses, mini wine bottle, and chocolates. I also design a "Happily Ever After" Derby Hat for the bride to be. The guest enjoyed an assortment of Tex-Mex fare. We played games such as "Two Lies and a Truth", How Well Do You Know the Bride?", and "Guess the Bride's Age" Game. The derby cake was from a local bakery in San Antonio called Alamo Sweets (www.alamosweets.com) .
