My mother saw a picture on pinterest that had hats hung on the back of chairs like this and we thought it was a great way to great the guests as they entered my house.
Each hat was paired with a place setting (including menu and favor) that matched the hat.
First, Royal Albert's Cheeky Pink with the pink hat at the end of the table:
To the left, Shelley's Harebell with the blue hat,
and Hammersley's Victorian Violets with the green hat.
and, with the yellow hat, there is my Elizabethan daffodil set.
Here is a closer look at the menu:
Each place setting had mixed fresh fruit in my little crystal shell cups.
As I mentioned earlier, I made favors and placed them at each place setting for the guests to take with them after the party.
