We have a special place in our hearts for the Kentucky Derby, but all horse races/excuses to wear seersucker and fabulous hats are okay by us! With the Belmont Stakes, and the possibility of the first horse to win a Triple Crown since 1978, coming up this weekend, we jumped at the chance to share one more piece of horse race inspiration. This dinner was actually a supper club party, but so many of the elements (hello, navy striped linens and playfully named tables!) could translate easily at a wedding, or even a rehearsal dinner or bridal shower.
Did y’all see our Derby Week posts last week? (Here, here, here, here, here, and here, in case you missed ’em!) I hope you all took our friendly pointers and sipped on scrumptious mint juleps while donning fabulous hats on Saturday! Oh wait, you don’t have a huge sun hat? Never fear! We are giving away five monogrammed floppy hats from Marley Lilly, one in white and the other four in the color of your choice!
A big round of applause for Kristen C! She answered:
I love the classic wide derby hat in the caramel color with the yellow/green big sash bow. I would top off the look with my monogram in green, my primary wedding color! Love these hats! Such a great giveaway and absolutely perfect for a summer wedding in the south! :)
I’d also like to send a big huge congratulations to Animal Kingdom, the winner of the 137th Kentucky Derby! We’re big fans, here in the SW office!
You know how the saying goes: “first comes love, then comes marriage…” Well, the folks at Spark Letterpress like to change it up a little. Their mantra? “First comes love, then comes letterpress”! You know what? They’re right! Before you wear that pretty white dress, you have to send out save the dates for the big day and Spark Letterpress has some of the most fabulous save the dates out there!
Last week, we asked you to check out Spark Letterpress’ awesome website and report back to us with your favorite save the date collection. Out of the many entries, only one winner can be selected and we are so excited to announce her now!
Congratulations to Anne J. who will receive 100 completely customizable save the date cards and envelopes from Spark Letterpress! By the way, Anne was quite fond of the Lily design.
Check back next week for another tremendous giveaway opportunity!
