Horse Race Hat Party

In Fashion, Friends on May 14, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Watching the recent british royalty nuptials, I was smitten with the hats. I decided I needed to come up with a reason to get people to wear lovely lids and WAH LAH it hit me — horse races!

  • Get access to some horse races – replay or live.  One option is here
  • Invite people over to watch them and bet on the races
  • Encourage people to wear hats as if they are going to the track on opening day
  • Have crazy (or ugly) hats available for those people who resist
  • Kick them out if they don’t comply
  • Decorate with silly details like these cupcake toppers, this banner, or these paper horses
  • Give a  super cool horse head prize for the top race winner and a wreath for best hat
  • Drink Mint Juleps
