Quinceanera Hats

I remember going to many quinceaneras when I was growing up. I looked forward to every single one. With the birthday girl dressed up in the perfect princess dress looking like a a perfect petit four dancing with her father. Quinceaneras are full of so many beautiful traditions that I revert back to 15 when I get a chance to create for one!

The deets: This mini top hat was handmade from scratch using white satin and a baby blue satin bow. The cluster of ostrich feathers, white rose and vintage button make this hat fit for a queen.

Not only is this little lady having the birthday party of her life, but she gets a Mad Hatter hat change in the middle!

Created from scratch with an olive green satin and matching green and white striped silk. Yellow, pink and purple flowers with peacock feather detail. The custom mad hatter tag boasts the date of the big day - 10 /19 will be here soooon!

Join me in sending this special lady some almost birthday wishes! I had a ball creating these hats dreaming of Latin American dances, candles and all of the spectacular festivities!

Mini Minnie Mouse Bowler Hat

Got a message from the sweetest hubby ever stating that his wife has just a wee obsession with Minnie Mouse. Namely, her yellow bowler hat with the lovely daisy. He just had to have one made for her. This guy is winning.

When I created the petite hat, we immediately knew we needed one larger. It's always fun to have a little more room to play, but that tiny tiny hat is cuter than a button.

I wish wish wish I had a chance to take a photo wearing these. I assure you they are even more awesome on...

I simply adore trying something new, so for your own custom order - you know the drill:

Pirate Wedding Tricorn Hat

I have been dying to make more mini tricorn hats, so I am so glad Lindsey came along with her Pirate themed wedding that is going be during the Portland Pirate Festival. How awesome is that?!

I like every one of my hats to have a little story and this one is chock full of goodness. It was handmade from scratch using an upcycled cream and ivory striped fabric that used to be my mom's stunning drapes.

Vintage button collected from a thrift in Delaware.

All the lace trims are vintage and steamed. They were found at a fabulous flea market in Vermont. They have seen the freshest of air and the breathtaking Berkshire mountains. What a trip.

And where would any of us be without a fluffy natural white ostrich plume?

I love this hat so much, it is officially listed in my Etsy Shop. Click THIS for the listing.
Congrats to you Lindsey!
Happy day friends.

Eeeek! Well, I had to try it on once!

Hot Pink and Black Mad Hatter Wedding

Oooo la la. Is there anything more classic AND more modern than a hot pink and black New Orleans Mad Hatter wedding? I think not.

I can't wait to see photos of this bridal party decked out in there matching Mad Hatter hats.

Handmade from scratch using black and hot pink satins. Hand crafted 10/6 tags and embellished with rhinestone trim.

Our gorgeous bride will be wearing a white mini top hat with thick black ribbon and detachable birdcage veil.

And of course two little wee reverse hot pink hats for the flower girls. This is going to be an awesome wedding.

As always, for your own custom Mad Hatter Wedding hats, message me

Happy Monday cheris!

Pin Up inspired Cupcake Hat

Yowsa! I was immediately excited when Mel sent me a photo of her adorable Pin Up dress in yellow and black! Perhaps it was happenstance that I had the identical yellow and white pin stripe seersucker fabric to match her dress. That, or some of my customers are my actual soul mates. Yea, let's go with that!

Mel needed a hat for a purse party she is catering with her delicious sounding desserts. Raspberry trifle, cupcakes, oh my! We immediately had a custom black and red cupcake pin made my Phoebe at Happy Creations. Yea. I know. Look at it!

I got the fun fun fun opportunity to meet M yesterday when she came to pick up her hat and we both did a collective happy dance!! Then spent 45 minutes talking over each other about purses and hats and pretty little things!

My husband makes fun of me for hoarding everything, but my theory is - everything will find its perfect place. Just like these raspberries. I have had them for so long and have contemplated using them on so many things from gift packaging to hair accessories. It was obviously waiting for Mel and her love of pin up. Don't they just make you taste that cupcake?!

Thank you so much Mel for allowing me to make your head piece for your exciting evening! Best of luck. Buy lots o' bags! You are fabulous!

Happy Wednesday friends!!!!
