So Derby is here, as in next week. If you haven’t started making your Derby party plans, may I ask what you are waiting for?!

We would love to help you with your last minute party plans, especially if the thought of having lots of people in your home is starting to make you a little nervous! Let’s get them outside, but keep them comfortable.

A tent rental for an event doesn’t have to be elaborate, just enough to keep people shaded and comfortable. Of course, if you want to go the elaborate route that is always an option.

This tent is a perfect option for a Derby party, assuming the Ohio Valley weather doesn’t do what it does best, and surprise everyone! The tree cover in this particular yard adds to the comfort level for your guests.

Once you have decided on the tent, what about decorations?

Our friends over at RidingCorner.com show us that choosing the traditional red roses is a classic option that will never go out of style. Shindigz-Kentucky-Derby-Party-Supplies

Always remember no matter the theme that you go with, don’t forget one key ingredient. Kentucky bourbon. It is up to you to pick your type of bourbon, everyone has their own taste.

Don’t forget to have a Derby Pie on hand! Technically unless you purchase your pie from Kern’s Kitchen you can’t call it a Derby Pie, so call it a Not Derby Pie and move on. Seriously, there is a website called Not Derby Pie.
