Preparation for the 2010 Central Park Conservancy "Hat" Lunch

On Wednesday, May 5, 2010, I'm off to Central Park Conservancy's 28th Annual Frederick Law Olmsted Awards Luncheon. Each year, I look forward to this date on the social calendar because it's always an afternoon filled with the beauty of the Conservatory Garden, the resonant sounds of strings and horns, and a vibrant show of finery.

After decorating my hat for the last couple of years' lunches, I decided to make a tradition of it. As the year passes, I'm always on the lookout for supplies for this special project.

For this year's hat, I used two birds from last year's hat.

A flower from gift wrapping on a present from my parents, a branch of faux ivy from Gracious Home, and a butterfly from the wrapping on a jewelry store purchase rounded out the ingredients for this year's hat.

Two birds in the hand are worth less than two on a hat.
