Let the official Kentucky Derby Churchill Downs poster inspire the look for your Kentucky Derby party. First cover the dining table in a simple white cloth. Next add splashes of color with the accessories.
Sprinkle horse and jockey confetti down the middle of the table. Bright blue plates pop against the white cloth. Red napkins contrast with the plates and match the confetti. Purple flowers are regal and festive.
If you can, splurge on authentic metal julep glasses. Add, fun novelty items — a horse stuffed animal, a book about horse racing wages — that will spark conversation among guests.
