Derby Day Recap

Saturday was Mr. Potts & my Derby Day Bar Crawl & what fun we had!

We kicked everything off at our house with the Oaks Lily (see previous post for link to recipe) which was quite the hit!

I bought two bunches of Gerber Daisies & broke them into two vases. They turned out quite lovely.
Mr. Potts & I made quite the pair, don't you think? Y'all - I LOVED my hat!!

We had girls in hats.

We had boys in hats.
The end of the night came & my hat rested by the flowers. I'm saving this for the next time we go to Derby. I was so proud that I made this & pulled it off!! Don't you love the feathers?
Remember when I told you to bet the jockeys, not the horses? That's how I won big money last year on Mine that Bird.

I won the Derby pot this year too!

Love me some Calvin Borel!!!

Great dress and GREAT HAT! YOU LOOK FABULOUS!!
Love how you made it! My mom made a derby type hat for a fancy bridal shower last year and she won best hat! She put feathers on hers too! :) I wish I inherited the artsy talent! :)
Looks like so much fun! :)

What a fun day! Your friends might not let you go to Derby ever again as they don't want to miss the Potts' big day.

LOVE the hat...that takes some talent! You might have a new hobby.

PS-we really need to work on the mail. My invitation was lost again. Ugh. :)
