Entertaining Style with Jenny

The Kentucky Derby is May 4th and it’s always been a dream of mine to experience the “real” derby! But since most of us will be entertaining at home (mint juleps, southern desserts and big hats of course!) I asked one of my favorite bloggers, Jenny from Everyday Occasions, to share her Kentucky Derby entertaining style, favorite southern cocktail and dessert! I absolutely love Jenny’s elegant, preppy, New England style and when you follow her blog it’s like living in a Williams-Sonoma catalog. Everything is perfectly put together with easy and beautiful tutorials. This Cherry Almond Pound Cake looks incredible and what a great gift! I knew Jenny’s simple, classy taste would shine through when picking out her “southern” style and of course it did with a minimal, scalloped blue J.crew dress, a charming light pink hat and bold jewelry. To go with her chic derby outfit Jenny would serve the classic mint julep and Banana Cupcakes with Honey-Cinnamon Frosting, ummm need I say more? Thanks for sharing your picks Jenny!!

      Kristin! You will LOVE the Panama hat!! Seriously, it’s my favorite summer hat. This year I think I’ll splurge on a good floppy hat too!! XOXOXO

  4. Oh my! The sound of that pound cake and those cupcakes has got my mouth watering. As has the sound of mint juleps and those stunning sunglasses. What a summery post!

    I love this whole look (and the added drinks & cupcaes!). Added bonus that the look is from one of my favorite stores, too 🙂
