Top Hats!

| June 21, 2011 | Parties

The timing for the 23rd annual Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the Dallas Arboretum couldn’t have been more perfect, what with the millinery madness of the Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials only a week after. Indeed, event guru Steve Kemble decided on a self-designed Royal Wedding-themed topper that took the prize for most outlandish. Best pals Jill Rowlett and honorary chair Yvonne Crum channeled Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, while floral designer Shane Walker (who was responsible for many of the event’s haute hat creations) donned an oversized Alice in Wonderland-influenced teapot that won him an award for most true to theme.
