It’s your party and you’ll cry, get wasted, and force everyone to wear funny little hats if you want to.
And as long as they’re handmade party toppers by A Rabbit in the Hat, no one will mind a bit.
The dainty chapeaux are the brainchild of local designer Leigh Metcalf. Made in limited editions, each is covered with whimsical vintage and vintage-inspired fabrics, ribbons, ruffles, and pom-poms. The elegant Silhouettes hat, with its black and white cameos and sheet music, peps up stuffy, grown-up birthdays. Kids of all ages will feel aflutter in Butterflies.
Better yet, invite your friends to create their own lids with DIY kits (coming soon). Metcalf provides the materials and detailed step-by-step instructions with photos, you do the rest.
And everyone throws their hat into the ring.
