Sometimes you guys wonder what I do when I’m in Florida. Well…how about an old fashioned vintage tea? Yep! That’s what I did on Monday. Seeing all the hats and outfits were a blast. The food? blah. “Tea food” Sandwiches with too much bread and very little “stuff” inside. Cucumber sandwiches. Ham salad. Chicken salad. Pasta salad. Raspberry and white chocolate scone. Dessert consisted of small bites of cheesecake, cream puff and chocolate eclair. At four that afternoon, I met a lot of these women at the dog park for Big Dog Play Time. After all those carbs, we were all crashing! BUT you just have to see these hats
I’m not going to comment on every picture. Most speak for themselves! Above is Robin, “dog mother” to Bailey and Barnaby
Robin and Ro, with their fascinators
Lori is also a very talented jewelry designer. Here’s a link to her website so you can browse through all her goodies!
And then there were the hats! Lots and lots of unusual and truly awesome hats. Here are just a few samples
And we didn’t just wear cool hats! Some ladies when all out with outfits. Check these out.
Before you think I didn’t give into the hat craze of the day, think again!
And here is me and my hat!
So what did I learn from attending a vintage tea (because you know life is a series of lessons, right?)
1. You will crash after a lunch of heavy carbs
2. Hats are fun to wear
3. Hats are H-O-T to wear…and when I say “hot,” I don’t mean in style. I mean I was sweating. And forget taking off your hat if you get hot because…
4. Hat + sweat = dreaded hat head!
I hope you enjoyed visiting the vintage tea with me and the pictures of the wonderful women here who love nothing more than having a good time!
