The latest tips for the Kentucky Derby

Are you ready for the event? #raceetiquette #derbyetiquette This event has been going on for 144 years! That’s a lot of years for traditions to be formed.
 So let me tell you about one that I love, which is, that this race is also known as “Run of the Roses” because since 1932 the winner is given a garland of red roses sewn together. The winner of this year’s Kentucky Derby #kentuckyderby will take home around $1.2 million which is not bad for two minutes of racing.

Another tradition that I totally love is the outfits that you can see during Derby weekend.  So let's get some  #derbyetiquette regarding what to wear? Hat or  Fascinator? Both are going to be seen with glamour around the grounds. Hats tend to be wide-brimmed and inspired in the Southern Belle look. Fascinators are more popular every year and are easier to wear since they are secured to your head either with a comb or headband. #fascinators #hats  The dresses that accompany the headgear should be spring dresses and either pastels or bold colors that coordinate with your hat.

If you are not going to Churchill Downs, Kentucky this weekend, it does not mean that you cannot get into the mood by having or attending a local party to watch those famous two minutes on television and finding a good excuse to wear that beautiful Fascinator made by Monica Mayer of #LadyArtWear , that you have not used for a while, all the while sipping some mint juleps or champagne!

Graduation Etiquette

May is graduation month, so it is always a good time to review
some graduation etiquette.
Let's begin with the difference between a graduation announcement and an invitation to a graduation ceremony or party.
If you receive a graduation announcement, you are not required to send a gift to the graduate. You, of course, may do so if you wish, receiving a gift is always nice, but you do not have to. What is always a nice gesture is to send a card or note congratulating the graduate for his/her accomplishment.
On the other hand, if you are invited to the ceremony or the party, you must send or take with you a gift to the event.
Another aspect that is always a delicate topic is who gets invited to the actual commencement. Usually high school and college graduation ceremonies have a limited number of invitations allotted per student.
Most family members will understand that it only allows for very close members to attend, but always explain the situation to relatives so they don’t feel they have been left out of this important family event. What is a delicate way of dealing with this problem is to make sure that members from each side of the family of the graduate attend.
If you have a close knit, large family that is used to big celebrations, then hold a party after the graduation and make sure to invite everyone so they all share the festivities!
