Kentucky Derby Birthday Hats And Cheeseheads

Ria's BFF
(best friend forever)
is having a birthday party.

My daughter, 
and company,
got busy and created
hats for all the girls to 
wear to the
Derby Birthday Party.

Let's just say that
Ivana Trump
has NOTHING on
our girls' hats.
Here's a few of the
creations TPot came 
up with.
The Tiara Triumph
The Dovely Delight
The Bluebird & Butterfly Beauty
The Lavender Love
The SweetCheeks Special
Modeled by none other
than herself...
How cute is that?

Of course,
being from Wisconsin
means MyHero might
need a hat for the party.
I think I found the perfect
one to order for him.
Hmmmm...If he gets
hungry waiting for the
race to start he
can always eat his hat!

ps~They don't call him a 
Cheesehead for no reason.

Enjoy Kentucky Derby Day!
I'll be at my daughter-in-love's
You won't believe 
WHOOO will be there.
I'll show you tomorrow!
your photo name

Diana, I love the hats!!! what a neat idea. Many years ago,my g,daughter was excited about the derby, she was about the age of S.C. I asked her what they did at the kentucky derby...she said, "They derby, I guess." What memories. Enjoy your beautiful family, xo, Susie

I was just admiring the hats at the Derby when I logged online this morning, Diana! We had been thinking of going but decided to wait until next year since it fell on our anniversary. I told my husband the hat was the most important thing! Love the hats your daughter came up with for the girls. I'll bet they love them.

Jettie said...

What cute creations, the girls will all love them, and that is enough cheese to share, I do believe, unless it is stinky cheese.

Have a lovely time at the shower, hope to hear all about it.

You daughter may have a new career designing Fascinators! She did a great job! ~ Maureen

Kelly said...

It's fun to see all the different hats people wear at the Kentucky Derby. I guess it's one of the few times Americans get together and all wear hats like they do in Britain. You have shared some creative ones for sure!

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

What fun hats!

Pam said...

Love the Lavender Love hat. They're all really cute though. Even the cheese head with horses on it is cute. I think I'll add the derby to my bucket list. Or is it drinking list?

Patti said...

Great ideas...and she is a cutie!

Zoey said...

Oh, what fun to have Derby hats! I hope you enjoyed a couple of mint juleps while you watched the derby in your designer hats. :)

Love those hats! I love the cheese head one, too. The guys are going to get me a philly one with ear flaps!
They announced that yesterday as we were watching the race. We took a break from yard work to watch the horses.
Tpot is so gifted. Would love to see photos of the girls in those.

Janet said...

Wow! The hats are lovely.

Cute little SweetCheeks. :)

I love the cheesehead one. lol My hubby is a Packers fan from way back. We have a giant Packers colored blanket across the window in his little TV room.

And of the millions of caps he has there are two Packers ones. The guy has only one head why all the caps?? lol

Can't wait to see who came to the shower.

Take care, Janet W
