Mad Hatter’s season is one of my favorite times of year, and a Dallas tradition unlike no other. The Mad Hatter’s Tea and Luncheon, hosted by The Women’s Council of The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, supports to maintain and grow A Woman’s Garden, a stunningly beautiful Dallas Arboretum garden. The theme of the fabulous and festive event was “Dallas”, which is aptly selected for all the party-goers as they pulled out the stops to honor their favorite city and party of the year.

Colorblocking your favorite bold colors is a spring / summer top trend. Sultry silhouettes with cut-outs modernize an 80s trend and bring two popular styles together this season.
