Everyone loves a party, and apparently everyone loves a party with a theme even more! This past weekend we hosted the members of our Estate Subscriber Program for our Annual Appreciation Party. Since the party was the weekend prior to the Kentucky Derby, we got it in our heads that it would be fun to have a Run for the Roses theme.
Our Event Coordinator Nikki Price grabbed hold of the event and ran (pun intended) with it. All the Talley Vineyards staff got on board with the concept and before we knew it we had collected everything from photos of thoroughbreds to stacks of horseshoes to bouquets of roses.
The meal also fit the theme with a brunch menu featuring a few southern inspired dishes. No one missed the traditional mint juleps considering the plethora of delicious single vineyard chardonnays and pinot noirs that were available for tasting.
For me, the thing I enjoyed most about our Run for the Roses party was seeing how many of our wine club members embraced the theme.
There were hats and bowties as far as the eye could see, bringing a special level of fun to the day.
Now we can all look forward to watching the actual Kentucky Derby this weekend before it is time to start thinking of next year’s theme!
