Good morning! How is your week coming along? Mine has been great, although it has been a little cold it is amazing what a few days of sun can do to your mood and disposition.

That said I am looking forward to the weekend, not only for a little rest and relaxation but because I can’t wait for the Kentucky Derby. I love the pomp and circumstance of the day, the beautiful horses, hats and of course the food.

I love a good party and I love party food even more, appetizers are my favorite things to serve and eat. I like the idea that you can try lots of little things; so I thought I would round up a few ideas for the weekend in case you are hosting or attending a Derby Party.
