Don your hats ladies, it is time to party!
A hat or fascinator party is a perfect party theme for Ladies Night Out Parties, Bachelorette Parties (Hen’s Night In), Bridal Showers, Birthday Luncheons, Retirement Parties, and even Quinceanera Celebrations, Teen Parties, Sweet Sixteen Parties, and Bat Mitzvah Celebrations (especially if you add a charitable element to your celebration).
I even hosted a wildly successful hat theme party while in college. Like costumes, hats make great conversation starters without the fuss of finding the perfect costume. My date and I simply took a ride to the local Burger King and picked up a pre-party snack and 2 Burger King crowns.
One more idea — dress your holiday party up this year — add a hat element and leave your Christmas sweaters in mothballs in the back of the closet or in the bottom dresser drawer!
The Inspiration for this party
Kate Middleton, Fashion Icon & The Fascinator
Women across the world are wanting them and wearing them!
The fascinator is the new must have fashion accessory! What is it? It is an ornate hair accessory that features feathers, beads, flowers and other fancy trimmings. Kate (or should we say Princess Catherine) seems to favor fascinators with feathers. We like them all. Not only do fascinators add a whole lot of flair to any outfit, a nice fascinator does not have to set you back a pretty penny which is good because you will definitely want to own more than one!
Where to wear them? Everywhere!
- Planning a ladies night out or bachelorette party? Call attention to yourselves by wearing these fun and festive head pieces.
- Planning a birthday luncheon? Ask all your friends to wear fascinators or hats or any type!
- Attending an afternoon wedding? Don a fascinator — the latest British trend to storm America's shores.
Let's start with the hats
Fascinator Cocktail Hats
In all seriousness, there is a perfect fascinator for every outfit!

Hat Theme Partyware and Paper Goods
Hat Theme Place Cards and DIY Place Card Board
Create a beautiful place card “board” by stacking hat boxes either plain or decorated. Attach your flat place cards to the hatboxes with hat pins. Push the pins through the box and into the foam. You many need to place floral foam or styrofoam blocks inside the boxes to stabilize the pins. Place on a lazy susan so your guests can easily twirl it to find their card
Hat Theme Centerpieces
Again, there is not much available but consider making your own hat cake and displaying it as your centerpiece on a lovely cake pedastal.
Simply use on of these Hat Gift Boxes as your centerpiece and at the end of your meal, surprise your guests and break out the goodies!
You might also consider using these less expensive cocktail hats as decorations or use children's tea party hats and Easter bonnets.
These funny hat wearing ladies might make a cute addition to your table.
And we always love these hat calendars as party favors or hostess gifts! Every year they come out with a new version, so don't let the date on the picture deter you!
