Kentucky Derby Party Games

Hello to everyone from {a very sunny} NYC! I just finished up my first appearance on the Today Show (something that’s honestly been a dream for years – hooray!!)… and wanted to share a couple free downloads from the segment.

The theme was Kentucky Derby Party ideas, and since the show was running a little late we only about 3-1/2 minutes to work with so we skipped over a few things, but I was so happy that Kathie Lee & Hoda made a point to get to the game because this is an easy way to add a fun element to your party… and best of all it’s PERSONALIZED!

Kentucky Derby Party Games

These are “Derby-ized” versions of the classic Pin the Tail on the Donkey game. I designed some new posters for “Pin the Hat on the Southern Belle” and “Pin the Jockey on the Horse“. You can add your own favorite faces to the Southern Belle Poster and to the individual Jockeys. I like the idea of not telling guests about this ahead of time and just enjoying the laughter when they see the game (and some familiar faces) revealed. This game can be especially entertaining after a couple cocktails!

Links to download everything are below. I’m running out the door to meet with some colleagues for lunch then do walkthroughs of venues for an event we’re hosting here in July! Hope everyone enjoys watching the Kentucky Derby tomorrow and celebrates with a Mint Julep (or Mint Julep Cupcake!)
