Whether or not you are an avid horse lover or in it for the day, the Kentucky Derby is a great event to enjoy with friends. Valley Forge has some great food and flower ideas to make your Derby party or get together looking and tasting its best!
We have some fabulous nut mixes for you to snack on:
Roasted salted pistachios in a beautiful white bag from Newns farm as well as twist and crack almonds. The almonds are in the shells and can be broken easily with your fingers.
Feridies peanut brittle crunch which is a wonderful southern treat for everyone.
Hot Honeys: Honey Roasted Chipotle Peanuts
Mint julep cup filled with red roses which as traditional for derby day. It is symbolic of the roses blanketed on the winning horse.
It can also be sent as a gift to the derby lover. We can assemble these cups with any fresh, silk or preserved roses (pictured below).
We also love them on a grapevine wreath for a rustic spin on the traditional style.
Although we can’t give you advice on betting, the horse lover in the group has soft spots for Hansen and Creative Cause. Good luck!
