NYC Easter Bonnet Parade

As I mentioned in my last post, this year I had the opportunity to check out the Easter Bonnet Parade in NYC. This was such a fun gathering of some seriously creative and fashionable people. I saw everything from top hats to hats made out of Easter baskets and peeps!














I have to say, I think the peep hat that this little boy had on above was my favorite. What you can't see in this photo is that the stuffed chick on the top jiggled back and forth. And in case you didn't realize, I love peeps!!! I mean...who doesn't???

I just love that everyone in attendance had such a great sense of humor about it all. Laughter and smiles filled the streets. If you get a chance to go to this gathering in the future you should definitely check it out. Have any of you ever gone to it before?

This bonnet showcase got me thinking...what would I make my ideal bonnet out of? The next time I attend this "parade" I will definitely be rocking a crazy hat. What would you make your Easter bonnet out of???
