The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow! This is the most famous and the first of the three races in the Triple Crown. There is so much fun tradition around the race including; big fancy hats (of course!), flowers (run for the roses!), mint juleps (racing, I mean party planning, I mean DIYing is thirsty work!) and even horses (oh…right, kind of important!)

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite DIYS inspired by the Derby and some drink recipes (each race has a signature cocktail)!

This Minaudiere with Golden Horse is one of my faves!Minaudiere with Golden Horse by Trinkets in Bloom

While this hat isn’t as flamboyant as a derby hat should be, creating a ombre colored base would be a great start for your derby hat. Or keep it simple like this one!Spray Dye Beach Hat DIY Photo 1

I also found this drink – The Pink Lilly – which sounds super delish!
2 cups grapefruit juice
2 cups pinapple juice
1 1/2 cups white rum
1 cup chilled club soda
splash of genadine (to make it pink!)
