Kristina Lynne Designs Fascinators

Maybe it’s a faux pas to go to Derby without a proper hat, but we think these chic Louisville-made fascinators ($19.99 and up) take the triple crown.

Four Roses Kentucky Bourbon

Bourbon is synonymous with Kentucky, and who are we to argue? There are tons of distilleries big and small across the state, so if you couldn’t get your hands on some Pappy Van Winkle, no need to be disappointed. We love Four Roses Small Batch blend ($40) for its smooth finish.

Crayon Rocks

Kids like crayons and kids like rocks, why not make one shaped like the other? Made from natural soy wax and tinted with natural mineral powder, crayon rocks ($8.95) come in a set of 16 colors.

Meacham Derby Ham

If holidays mean ham in your household, there’s really only one ham to have. Meacham’s derby hams ($42 for boneless half) are less salty than your standard ham, and with 80 years in the business, you know they’re the best.

Triple Crown Winners Subway Scroll Cards

The perfect way to invite guests to a Derby party, the Triple Crown cards ($12 for three) are a winning take on the subway scroll trend.

Sweeter Lemon Button Pushpins

Few things get us more excited than cute office supplies. We’re about to scoop up a bunch of these charming fabric-covered pushpins ($6 for six) to decorate corkboards in our office.
