To celebrate 16 years of Australian Red Hatting, Rubies and Pearls of Kilmore hosted a party on Thursday 27th July at Penny’s Restaurant in Kilmore. Penny’s is located in the heritage listed Old Kilmore Town Hall.
We had 54 ladies from various Victorian locations as well as from NSW. Each guest received a bracelet of rubies and pearls (faux) and a lapel badge commemorating the event. The bracelets were made by two of our ladies and the badges were made by Obsi (web mistress of Red Hats Victoria). But, of course, you are aware of the lovely contribution made to the day.
The room was very elegant with red sashes around each chair and fresh flowers as table centre pieces.
First prize in our raffle was a Faberge like carved egg decorated with red hat, tiny shoes and bag. This was made as a “one off” especially for the birthday celebration. Monica Ashworth of the Wandering Wenches was the lucky lady to take it home.
