Hosted Annually, Always Unique

Full Service Event Planning, Custom Catering, Onsite Staffing & Execution

We’ve been working with these clients since our very beginning and this event is definitely a highlight of our year. It can be difficult to plan an annual event without making it seem like the “same old same old”. The key is creating the right balance between familiarity and intrigue. Each year has a similar vibe and structure; a great group of friends, AMAZING outfits (especially the hats), Mint Juleps and a very exciting 2 minutes of race time.

However, every year we switch up the custom catering options while always delivering on our client’s favorite, a cheese & charcuterie spread. We always have Mint Juleps and local craft beer but develop a different signature cocktail inspired by each Derby. We have even introduced a custom gambling board so guests can interact and place their bets on their favorite pony. Creating that balance of familiarity and intrigue is one of the reasons our clients invite us back each year.

All their guests know to expect a great event but always look forward to finding out what we will do next!

I can't say enough about the services provided by Host A Toast. They have worked with my husband and I to plan our annual Kentucky Derby Party over 4 years - and every single event has been flawlessly planned and executed. Our party is often known as "the event" to attend each spring amongst our social circle. Our friends look forward to the delicious food and cocktails that are served each year. If you want to actually enjoy a party you host in your home, hire Host A Toast - you will never regret it!
