With the 140th annual Kentucky Derby® a little over a week away, it seems that everyone is getting in the equestrian spirit. Many people are planning soirees complete with mint juleps and mandatory wardrobes – fascinators and dresses for women and madras and bow ties for men.


Our friends at Pottery Barn are certainly ready to “giddy up!” A recent post on their blog, Inside & Out, is dedicated to throwing a fabulous Derby-esque party. The piece discusses festive decor, cocktail recipes and more to make your gathering truly memorable. The ladies featured in the post, decked out in their Derby attire, accessorized with bangles from our Kentucky Derby® Collection, which commemorates 140 years. With charms like the Horseshoe and Racehorse, they’re the perfect addition to your festive charmed arm!
