This is an excerpt from the invite...
In the spirit of Cinco de Derby, we encourage you to dress like one and drink like the other. For example, wear your finest derby hat and sip on some margaritas OR opt for the alternative attire and treat yourself to a mint julep.If you're more of the Derby-infield type, Jorts are encouraged and High-Life will be available.
Well it was a no brainer for me. I was going Derby and you know what that means! A hat!!! I strolled on over to the dollar store and splurged on a $4 sun hat. I actually like this hat and wanted to wear it after the party so I didn't want to destroy it with hot glue.
Pretty simple to attach the fresh flowers. A little packing tape...yep, clear packing tape....and a little imagination and we were ready to roll!
