A day at the races

Looking for a venue to host a hen's party, birthday bash or just a fantastic girls’ day out? We think a day at the races is the answer. There's nothing like frocking up, sipping a glass of your favourite tipple and taking in the action - both on and off the field! Send out one of our racy invites created especially for you.

  • If going to the track isn't your thing, isn't practical or affordable for you at the moment, why not host a racing event at home? A champagne breakfast, brunch or afternoon with your favourite friends could be just the order of the day. Suggest that everyone brings a plate of their favourite treat and their drink of choice, then you supply the venue and the form guide. Get into the spirit and do a $1 sweep for a little extra fun!
  • When it comes to fabulous frocks and looking your best for that special event, Karah Tarran-Wilson from Rose and Ruby knows her stuff.
  • Here are her tips for race day outfits:

    • Shorter style dresses can be teamed with a lovely pair of stockings to take them through the colder months on the track.
    • A gorgeous coat is essential for winter racing - always be sure it is longer than your dress.
    • Buy your investment pieces in neutral colours, like a wonderful cream coat, and add colour through your shoes, clutch and hair piece.
    • Remember, for autumn and winter racing there should be no straw in your hat.
