Mad World

What it is about women and hats? The days are long gone when they were required daily wear, but we still leap at any opportunity to wear beautiful chapeaux. Each year, the Women's Council of the Dallas Arboretum hosts a Mad Hatters Tea Party to benefit the Women's Garden, with a theme intended to inspire creativity, ingenuity and feats of engineering. Think Marie Antoinette, and you get the idea. This year's theme is "Behold the 8th Wonder of the World." Expect to see Egyptian pyramids, the hanging gardens of Babylon and other architectural marvels. The champagne reception, fashion show, hat display and tea take place Wednesday at the Dallas Arboretum, 8525 Garland Road. Tickets are $150; email Kay Braley at [email protected]
Wed., April 25
