I think it's the sweetest hat ever.

For my mother's *mumble mumble* birthday, she decided to do a ladies-only tea party.  Our invite said that hats and gloves were highly recommended.  I took that as a challenge.

Inspiration

See these ladies and gentlemen here? They gave me inspiration.


Firefly/Serenity hat quote 
(for my fellow geeks out there)

Jayne: (wearing ugly homemade hat) "How's it sit? Pretty cunning, don'tchya think?"

Kaylee: "I think it's the sweetest hat ever."

Book: "Makes a statement."

Jayne: "Yeah, yeah!"

Wash: "A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything."

Jayne: "Damn straight."
Go big or go home.
 
So, I bought the biggest sun hat I could find.  Then I bought out the dollar store craft section.  This was the result.
 

We went to a tea room for the party.  Ladies were taking my picture left and right. My mom had to stick me in the corner, though:  no one wanted to get knocked in the head by my larger than life hat!

So versatile!

Not only did I wear this to my mother's tea party, but I was able to wear it again at a tea party for my daughter's Girl Scout troop. I won first prize for the best hat.  Are you surprised?

This post was prompted by the Red dress club.

O, well done, you! Although, just looking at that hat makes my neck hurt. Was it as heavy as it looks?

That hat is unbelievable! But gorgeous nonetheless.
I wouldn't be so brave to wear a hat like that one, not even a smaller one, if you ask me.

Booyah's Momma -- Yes, it was as heavy as it looks. But well worth the pain!

That may just be the largest hat I have ever laid my eyes upon!

The best part about that hat? The grape clusters!
Thanks for the smile.
