Marty at A Stroll Thru Life and Lady Katherine at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor have parties on Tuesdays that seem to just go together like peas and carrots….like the Kentucky Derby and roses!
Last week I was invited to attend a garden club flower show whose theme was the Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses. I live in a “horsey” community where stables and houses are interspersed. This club has a stellar reputation and I knew I would not be disappointed.
This beautiful arrangement of roses sat on a baby grand piano. I can’t even imagine how the owner created this .
Red and white roses with mint---and this was only Honorable Mention.
This arrangement won first place in its category. I love the mixture of colors and the lines of this---I can see why it won.
Riding boots and horseshoes…. I love the moss and grass in this one.
Of course there were hats….
And not just in Derby red…the judges loved this one. It also won first place.
This is my favorite---look at that gorgeous pewter horse pitcher!
Brussel sprouts and roses in the base….a horse’s mane of lacey fern….and still just second place :(
Look at the gorgeous colors in this loving cup. I think Calvin and Super Saver would have been proud to receive this!
This is not on a table, but I wanted you to see this. I have posted some of these before as has Glenda at A Dab of This and That. Horse statues were given to local artist to decorate several years ago to commemorate the anniversary of our local charity horse show. This one adorned with daffodils was moved temporarily to the flower show site. She’s a beauty!
