Derby Mint

Something close to the top of my bucket list is attending the Kentucky Derby. I’m from horse country Virginia, but just as I got old enough to start going to the derbys, my family moved abroad. I remember being jealous every year of my middle school friends in their cute dresses and hats! To make up for those missed events, I have my eye on Churchill Downs and all of the amazing Southern traditions that go along with it. One of the most iconic traditions is the mint julep, so in light of both Derby Week and the fact that mint green is pretty much the “it” color this spring, I pulled together this sweet inspiration board.

I would love to attend a derby-inspired wedding like this–someone have one and invite me, please! :)
