This May, Two Funny Girls is “off to the races” to celebrate the Kentucky Derby. The “Run for the Roses” is not only the most prestigious event in horse racing, but also the perfect excuse to throw a party, Our assortment of cute and customizable products is sure to upgrade any Kentucky Derby soirée. Get started with these personalized picks:
We love our customizable koozies! Not only are they useful, but perfectly personalized for your party. After the event, your guests will be reminded of your race-day party every time they pull out these reusable drink accessories. Feel free to have fun with your beverage of choice and think beyond beer. A canned Moscow Mule from The Copper Can is delicious and refreshing, and definitely a crowd pleaser. Rosé Bubbles from Underwood is another Spring favorite, but you can also opt for a more hydrating beverage like the cucumber sparkling water from Spindrift to accompany your guests’ mint juleps. No matter the drink, your koozie will keep it just as cool as it is cute.
Whiskey and Coke with a “Run for the Roses” Twist
The Mint Julep may be a staple at Churchill Downs, but there’s nothing like a classic whiskey and Coke to get the party started. This drink is a classic because it’s just as simple as it is delicious. With just two ingredients, you won’t have to play bartender all day making complicated cocktails. Upgrading this mixed drink to a Triple-crown worthy creation is easy. Serve up this drink over rose shaped ice cubes (we love these Amazon silicon molds for extra-large ice roses) and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary or mint in our personalized frosted Kentucky Derby party cups or our best-selling stadium cups. The molds can be used to make chocolate roses too, so feel free to get creative!
While a solo cup is an undisputed party essential, at Two Funny Girls, it’s also the ultimate party favor. Our solo cups are double wall insulted and safe for hot or cold drinks. These customizable cups are even top-rack dishwasher safe, meaning guests will able to reuse them again and again. Send guests home with a sturdy solo cup full of fresh roses for the perfect Derby day bouquet. They’ll be racing to put their cups to good use from coffee to cocktails!
Darling Derby Décor
The perfect party setting is easy with these table-setting tips. Instead of opting for a cloth table runner, try a fun wrapping paper. The options are endless, but for our derby décor, we chose a red and white striped paper to match our cups and koozies. A wrapping paper runner is just as affordable as it is easy to clean up, meaning you’ll have more to devote to food, drinks and favors for guests!
