The Red Hat ladies are an internationally recognized group of fun-loving gals aged 65 and older who embrace and celebrate their independent spirit through tea parties, dinners, parties and other festivities. Plan the ultimate Red Hat celebration today!
It may be difficult to find wide-brimmed, garish red hats in a typical department store. That’s why the enterprising Red Hat lady might opt to create a homemade hat for the occasion.
She might, for example, take a conventional lady’s hat and dye it a bright shade of red. Or the particularly crafty woman might make her own hat from red fabric, or even heavy construction paper. A handmade hat can be adorned further with the addition of sparkles, feathers, gold stars, etc. Ladies under the age of 55 will want to create and wear pink hats for the occasion.
Traditionally, those who attend Red Hat parties are encouraged to wear purple dresses; again, these can be handmade or dyed, and embellished with red and purple necklaces made from beads or fake gems.
The host can decorate the party with red banners and swirls made from tissue and crepe paper, and with a centerpiece—made from clay, construction paper, or another material—created in the likeness of a red hat. She also might post a copy of the famous poem “Warning” by Jenny Joseph (either handwritten or computer generated), which inspired the Red Hat movement.
She also may want to serve a homemade cake in this shape with icing of red butter cream, as well as cupcakes with red and purple icing. Red punch could be served on the side, along with tea, wine, wafers, finger sandwiches and other tea party favorites.
With a little imagination, any woman can transform herself and her guests into the infamous Red Hat ladies. Red Hats forever!
