It’s on my bucket list to go to the Kentucky Derby: the hats, the Mint Juleps! Southern food! I want it all. Until I make the trip to Louisville the next best thing to going to the Kentucky Derby is throwing a Kentucky Derby Party. We partnered with Kentucky Derby to celebrate the upcoming race on May 6 by throwing an epic Derby Party complete with balloon horses, hats, and Mint Juleps. We’re also doing a Giant Giveaway! We’re giving away 2 round trip flights to Louisville, tickets to the Kentucky Derby, and 3 nights in a hotel (all the details below!)
I am so excited to share a new project in collaboration with Randi Brookman Harris for the Oh Happy Day Party Shop! Announcing Supersonic Party Favor Kits. We now have 8 carefully curated favor kits with everything you need to put together a party favor bag!
I was inspired to launch this over two years ago after putting together my own children’s birthday goodie bags. I wanted fun and silly and hard-to-source toys and candy. After spending an afternoon going all over town collecting a bunch of special little items I thought, “I wish I could just buy it all in one place.” I started working on a special favor section for the Oh Happy Day Party Shop.
Spring has sprung! At least I think it has. Some mornings are perfect and slightly warm while others require multiple layers, so I’ve just stopped using the weather for signs of spring. Instead I’ve turned to the produce department. Strawberries are popping up everywhere and they’re getting better every week. (BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR RHUBARB. RHUBARB, IF U SEE THIS MESSAGE CALL ME).
Because strawberries are looking so fine, I figured it would be a perfect time to kick off a new series I like to call “Piece of Cake”. We’ll go over staple recipes that you should have in your party toolkit so when the time comes to throw a party, you don’t have to search high and low for a yellow cake recipe or a chocolate sheet cake or in this case, shortcakes.
