Cinco de {Derby}

Since we've moved to Charlotte, NC we have annually attended our friends' derby party and really look forward to dressing up and doing a little friendly wagering on the 2 most exciting minutes in sports. We were so sad when the party had to be cancelled this year (understandably so since they are in the middle of a big move) that last weekend on our drive home from Disney we decided to throw a little impromptu Derby Party of our own. Seeing as how the Kentucky Derby fell on Cinco de Mayo this year we decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and threw a Cinco de Derby party!! The decorations were minimal but included a photo booth back drop with a crepe paper streamer background and banner I made to match the logo I made for the party, along with some photo booth props and a couple little signs here and there. A big thank you to paper & cake for having the cutest fiesta photo props in her online store! Even though I am a huge fan of my Silhouette Cameo sometimes it's a heck of a lot fast to just print, cut, party (r)  :) Also, a shout out to Lizard & Ladybug for sharing her delicious Beergarita recipe with me which was a huge hit!
Here are some of the pictures that I can show you - I promised I'd keep the photo booth photos to ourselves!!
