The Big-Ass Hat Tea

Combine amazing 18th C costumes with fabulous food, and what do you get? Jenny-Rose‘s “Big-Ass Hat” tea! The idea was for everyone to wear 18th C costumes, accessorized with the largest hats possible. The folks who attended definitely delivered. Plus, Jenny-Rose and her family were such great hosts. We were treated to an absolutely scrumptious tea menu.

I rewore the dress I made for the Francaise Dinner, because it matched the one 18th C hat I already had. Plus, I liked the fit of this dress so much, I wanted to wear it again.

I made myself new earrings from these large acrylic pearls I had in the stash. (I also have a pair for sale in my Etsy shop.)
