Wow, this was a busy weekend! First the Majestic Ball Fundraiser on Friday, and then Sunday the Catholic Daughter's of the America's Tea. We hold an annual tea to raise funds for scholarships. Every year we attend the Tea wearing pearls, gloves, and beautiful hats. Each year the hats are judged and the winner get a pretty hat box! Last year I came in third for "Most Extravagant" category. I won a small gift bag. This year we were challenged to wear a hat inspired by chocolate! Guess what! Mine was one of the winning hats this year! I created the hat around 10 pm the night before. LOL I guess I get creative late at night! I purchased a cotton print with chocolate bon bons and chocolate hearts. I made a "kofi" and glued Hershey's kisses and miniature Hershey bars to the hat! I added some tulle and presto, this is how it turned out. They didn't photograph well, but I put red crystals on the hat and tulle. It was so hot Sunday that the candy starting melting on the way home, LOL!
Here are some of the other pretty hats!
