There's a new Queen in town...and it happens to be me--Queen La-TEA-da ANN the Grand Duchess of Dark Chocolate. The Royal Court from the Queendom of the Sizzlin' Sundance Red Hatters in the Land of Arizona put on a FAB coronation celebration truly fit for none other than the "Queen." There was plenty of pomp and circumstance including a red carpet, beautifully decorated royal throne, a stunning crown, a custom made robe, sceptor, bouqet of roses, sparkly queen pin, and royal "gifts" from each of the members in attendance. Some of my favorite were the "over the shoulder boulder holder" bra purse and the "maxi-pad" slippers bedazzled with jewels!
As music selections from Vivaldi filled the ballroom, the entire red hat Queendom glutinously feasted on gourmet culinary delights made by each of the ladies. After much ado about everything frivolous (hee-hee), the induction of the Queen of Vice, Members Pledge and other celebatory ceremonies, the celebration concluded with a scrumptuous red hat coronation cake.
Come take a peek at what the hoopla was all about....photos from that event and others are on Picturetrail:
