April showers lead to May Parties.
The first week of May packs so much fun, we have tips for every incredible day, event, and party you need to plan!
May 4th: Kentucky Derby
Grab an enormous hat, dress your best, and get ready to eat and drink eloquently. Watching the Nation’s #1 Horse Race of the year requires class, creativity and a solid plan. Think big for your bash, and that starts with the Hat. Have a contest and reward the best hat with a prize. Next, be sure to serve Kentucky favorites such as the famous Mint Julep and Benedictine tea sandwiches.
Shop Your Way has the best party planners in the business. Get in touch with a Personal Shopper who can help from everything to finding the perfect hat, copper mugs, pastel outfits and even help you travel to Kentucky to be there in person. Head to your Personal Shopper app or download it here.

May 4th: May the Fourth be with You!
Share your love for Star Wars by throwing a party that is out of this galaxy. The good news is we have tons of products where you can earn and redeem on. Are you going to swag out the family with the latest shirts, toys and gear? Or are you throwing a watch party and want everyone to drink from Kylo Ren mugs and go home with a stuffed animal Yoda?
May 5th: Cinco De Mayo
The holiday originally started to commemorate the victory of Mexican forces against the French in 1862 and has grown into a commercialized American holiday juggernaut. In fact in recent years, beer sales for Cinco De mayo have been more than the Super Bowl or July 4th. We suggest a tasteful bash that celebrates the rich culture and history that Mexican immigrants have shared with America. So ditch the sombreros and pinatas and head to the local store to create authentic street tacos, mexican beans slowly simmered, or delicious carnitas.
If cooking seems like a stretch, use one of our Card Link restaurant partners to cater your party. Search from hundreds of local restaurants: https://www.shopyourway.com/dine
