Inspiration ideas for your home's decor can come for a multitude of sources, even events like this Saturday's Kentucky Derby just might give you a few ideas that could add a little something special to a room or two in your home.
A beautiful perch for your Derby Day Shoo Fly pie could later serve as a decorative element in your kitchen or dining room. The Scalloped Cake Stand from Williams-Sonoma, $34 for a small stand, could be used in the bathroom to hold a bar of soap and a natural sponge or a collection of small perfume bottles.
The Derby is often referred to as the Run for the Roses. Do I even need to mention ways to incorporate roses into the design of a space?

Cups used to serve the must-have Derby Day cocktail, the mint julep, make perfect vases for a small bouquet for the bedside table.

See my post on uses for a julep cup to get more ideas.
You never know, you might even find a morsel of inspiration from the hats you see women sporting on race day.
Will you be watching the Derby this Saturday?
