Unique Bridal Shower


It’s a race to the altar  ~~  Kentucky Derby Style!




Mr.Brown Socks and I were invited to a couple’s shower this past Saturday night.  Such fun it was!  The wedding is just two weeks away and two of the bridesmaids turned a shower into a very fun evening.



Big Hats Galore!

Many of the men enjoyed playing bean bag toss on the lush green yard.  Perfect night, even though it was a tad chilly when the sun went down.DSCN1159


Sara and Stephanie, the two hosts!  They did a fantastic job with decor, food and setting everything up.  The mint juleps were Oh! So! Good!


They even had cute little names for the appetizers….



Here is the Bride to Be cutting into the Armadillo Bleeding Cake!  Wish I had gotten a picture of the full cake!  Yes, it was a bleeding armadillo ~~ red velvet.



The bride to be is Randi in the black hat and the next bride to be standing next to her is my daughter, Jamie.  They have been friends since Junior High.



Bride and Groom to be.

Congratulations to them.

We are so looking forward to the wedding!



Speaking of hats!  I was at a sale this weekend and came home with two vintage hats.  This one is a dressy straw hat that I would like to say I might wear to church.  Why is it most every woman says they love hats and wish they would come back in, but we are a tad bit nervous to wear them?  Costs?  $2.50!



Who doesn’t love this pretty green one?

I paid $3.75 for it!

The prices were half off due to the second day of the sale.




For now they are both hanging in my closet just asking to be worn!

Looks like a lot of fun! I know you can't do the Derby without a hat.

Oh my goodness. I just got asked by my friend to make her a Kentucky Derby hat for a party she is going to on Saturday. The bigger and the gaudier it is, is okay with her. Looks like fun.
