My sister always comes up with the best ideas for parties and get-togethers!
This was the first time I was in town during her annual Derby Party. A few old friends and family joined us in old bridesmaids dresses to make fancy hats (it’s amazing what you can do with straw hats and artificial flowers from the dollar store!), eat delicacies (cucumber sandwiches, chocolate pecan pie, and Italian sodas, anyone?), and watch the big race.
We posed for numerous photos – one of these days I will make a fun scrapbook from our dress-up get-togethers.
Charlie the cat was a bit envious that she didn’t have her own costume to wear. (Either that, or the feather looked awfully tempting…)
