$5…5 minute Kentucky Derby Party DIY fascinator

My friends at the Kentucky Derby challenged me to come up with a fun way to celebrate Derby no matter where you live and I thought that this Kentucky Derby fascinator could be made quick and on the cheap for all your Derby parties. If you don’t have a derby party to go to… no sweat… Just make one and hang out with the family and watch the greatest two minutes in sports at your house.

DIY Graduation gift card box

I told you last week that I am helping decorate my nephew’s high school graduation party. I get so excited about pulling it together…I may have a sickness….My sister in law doesn’t enjoy it as much—so she was thrilled when I volunteered;)

I made this sweet graduation gift card box…for about $5 and a bit of time. I thought that if you have any grads in your house this year you may want to put one of these together too:)

DIY Horse Racing Game (Derby Party Game)

Good Monday to you all! Did you watch the final Downton last night? I won’t spoil it for you….but it was such a nice ending. I do love it when a series ends exactly they way you wish it to end. I am going to miss these characters…maybe we can hope for a spin off:) I hope you had a great weekend….we got a little taste of spring yesterday and it was so nice! Springtime brings Derbytime here in the bluegrass…and this post is a long time coming….I actually made this game last Derby and forgot to share it! Thankful for Google plus—backs up my phone photos and I just scrolled back to last May:) So sorry these pics kind of stink….it’s all I’ve got!DIY horse racing game (derby party game) @cleverlyinspired (1)

This game proved to be a whole bunch of fun. We played it on Derby Day in between races. You could make it non-betting for a kids party though….either way it is pretty exciting.   I kind of pulled ideas from a few different games.
