In Review

Sunday, July 26, 2009 |
I'm very late in getting these photos posted. It's been a tad crazy in our home the past week ~ lots of drama!
The flowers on each table were just a little different. Ours were done in whites and pale green ~ simply beautiful. The table clothes were done in Lilly fabric ~ lovely!

The fashion show and brunch took place below at the Tennis Hall of Fame. The surroundings were lovely {if only the sun had been shinning} and it was oh so fun to dress up and be a lady for the day.


This is Miss Rhode Island modeling Lilly ~ to be so cute and young! She was very charming.



This was a favorite of mine. I love the color and the print. I could probably pull something like this off at the beach. The hat was great. I wish hats were more of a desired style piece, I think they are the epitome of being a lady.



We are the ladies from Connecticut. I am in the middle, my dear friend Fran is on the left and Jillian is on the right. I don't think we stopped talking or laughing all day.

After the brunch and fashion show, we did a little shopping. I surprised myself and only came home with two dresses. Due to the amount of rain we've had this summer, the grass courts were very wet. While waiting for them to dry, we had lunch and meandered around.
After a little tennis, we said good~bye to our fairy tale day with dreams of returning next year.

Thanks so much for posting about this wonderful day. I was hoping you would. Nothing better that tennis, Lilly, & good friends.

Sigh... you bring back visions of my youth at the ITHoF! I'm off to Newport with the kiddos on Tuesday... nothing nearly as glam though... we'll be poolside though, weather permitting. Fingers crossed please!

I love the photo of you and your friends... you are all beautiful!

So jealous! This looks like my cup of tea :) Hope the laundry detergent works for ya, I found that using the food processor or blender gets the soap nice and finely grated. The actual grater works as well, but takes more time! Let me know how it turns out :)
