Southern Derby Soiree

In the midst of all the winter inspiration out there, I thought I'd change gears for all the recently or potentially engaged couples over this holiday season looking for spring inspiration! LK Events & Design designed and coordinated this Southern Derby Soiree birthday party over the summer.

Birthday girl, London Ray, is here to spill the beans:
"I wanted something southern and girly--think Steel Magnolias. I wanted to be transported to the Old South with sun hats and tea dresses."

"Mini ham biscuits and potato salad were served in clay flower pots and the signature cocktail in old Mason canning jars."

London's baby and childhood pictures were framed with textured, antique paper and strung from jute twine.
"We sat under a canopy of twinkle lights, surrounded by Mason jars with tea lights and sipped wine from glass jars. There was even a cupcake and champagne toast" said London.

Cupcake adornments were made from green gingham ribbon and tied in bows.

Thanks so much for sharing with us, London! Stay tuned for more inspiration!
