Callie's Charleston Biscuits
Ok, having a total fan girl moment today on COLOR by K. Reese Witherspoon has always been an inspiration to me. From her passion for supporting other women {something we could all take a note from}, to her acting career, to her clothing line and now an entertaining collection?! Lady is killing it. I’m so honored to be connected to all of that – in some very small way. But enough of my girl crush babbling over here…on to the extra good stuff.

It’s here, it’s finally here! The Draper James x Crate & Barrel Collection is LIVE – and I’m thrilled to be one of the first to debut a few of the new pieces! Laura + I put together this beautiful Derby inspired set up last week as part of our next installment of #ENTERTAINbyKxSBS! For this Derby watch party, we wanted to keep things fresh + simple, including lots of fresh elements from florals to herbs. I mean, how fun are these bundles of mint in Draper James’ julep cups?! This is a great way to add pops of color to your table, and also be on theme for your Derby festivities.

On menu, Laura of Strawberry Banke put a few twists on Southern classics with fun presentation {like her oh-so-cute Benedictine Bites!}, sticking to tried and true recipes and simple, nostalgic flavors. We thought it best to stick with classic nods to the races and age-old Kentucky traditions, but keep everything bite-size of course. Adding a few fresh salads added color to the table, and lightened up the heavier comfort food for the perfect Kentucky Derby with Draper James celebration!
