Festive Finery at Pearl & Pine

Life-sized nutcrackers set the tone for our retrospective millinery fashion show at Pearl & Pine retirement residence in Burlington

What a welcome we received at our latest hat show. From the moment we walked in the door, we were engulfed in beautiful Christmas décor.   Residents and guests were treated to a champagne tea and listened attentively as staff modelled charming chapeaux from the Victorian era to the present day. 20151120_133129

I, of course, trotted out my newest Maria Curcic fascinator, a Minnie Mouse bow in Christmas green.
