Bloody Mary Garnishes for Kentucky Derby Brunch

I am hosting a Kentucky Derby brunch this year. While Mint Juleps are classic (but in my mind, a waste of good bourbon), I want to do a Bloody Mary bar. I am going to do pitchers of my special Bloody Mary mix, bottles of vodka, and a variety of garnishes for guests mix their own drinks and select their own garnishes.

I am a Bloody Mary purist, I like just a celery stick garnish. My sister, she will add as many garnishes as a swizzle stick or two will hold.

What are your favorite Bloody Mary garnishes? I want to provide a variety of garnishes for my guests.
