At the end of May I attended a luncheon at the home of one of our residents…”Women with Hattitude!” Isn’t that a cute idea for a luncheon? Everyone showed up in a hat, fancy, just a ball cap or decorated really cute! I was actually quite nervous about attending. I wasn’t sure if I would remember names of the guests…I think I know a lot of our residents but there’s a lot I don’t know. I also felt a little like I am not “part of the circle.” But everyone was very nice and I had an interesting time just watching and listening. The food was good too. Alice, the hostess, is in her eighties but still very active. She travels a lot and loves art. Her children were all on the Olympic Ski Team and one room in her house is covered with photos of family. I enjoyed looking at that much more than most of the art!
So here I am arriving…there was someone taking photos of all the guests and then Alice shared them with us. Do I look kind of nervous? My hand was shaking! Oh, I mean I am shaking hands!
This is Alice…her hat was pretty cute with the hand holding a deck of cards…big bridge players in this group. The hand even had a big beaded bracelet at the back of the hat!
There was a jazz band playing and the patio doors were opened and luncheon was served outside.
This was a cute idea. A construction hat with a wrench duct taped on top and screw drivers duct taped around the sides!
And here’s a nautical look
Here’s another lovely hat and one with a bird’s nest on top!
I loved this hat…so elegant! Quite a contrast to the “art” hanging on the wall!
I thought this was a fun idea and I enjoyed myself after all. Hats are fun and I wish we wore them a little more often!
