There is not much that we love more than a theme party here at Legacy Farms. When the opportunity arose for us to be a part of the Nashville Wilson County Chamber of Commerce’s annual Derby Day event we could not wait to be a part of it. Thoroughbreds, mint juleps, red roses, and fabulous hats were in attendance and the most entertaining two minutes was streamed so no one missed a second.

You cannot have a fabulous party without a fabulous menu. Thanks A Catered Affair, the food was a blue ribbon winner! Four different stations were set including a delicious biscuit bar, with bourbon marinated pork tenderloin and pimento cheese, a scrumptious appetizer station with baby hot brown bites, bourbon meatballs, and cheese grit shots.

As if that did not fulfill our guests derby day desires enough, we arranged a special dip station with pita chips and specialty crackers including black eyed pea salsa and Lima bean hummus. A dessert station was there to offer up a sweet follow up with adorable bourbon bites and julep cookie bars.

Some of our favorite pieces of decor were the amazing hats the guests adorned!

The decor was both appropriate and adorable. Award ribbons, red roses, horseshoes, saddles, candlelight and plenty of signature Legacy Farms’ rustic touches filled the Event Center with a beautiful place for guests to enjoy the streaming of the race. The room was set with several framed photo touches from photography of Derby Day pasts reminding guests of the Derby’s history.

The Event Center’s patio was not complete without our property’s beloved horse statue. This beauty was adorned with a red rose sash and ribbon of his own and made for the perfect setting for our guest’s to sip their mint julep’s next to.

We loved being a part of and hosting this event for our friends at the Nashville Wilson County Chamber of Commerce. A special thank you to our photographer J Ashley Kerr Photography for her photography contributions.
