Garden party

Hello there! Wait until you see this.

Hattingdon was invited to a garden party this weekend and wanted something extraordinarily eye-catching to wear.

Well, this look is without a doubt both.

Wow. Ummmm. . . that’s some change from the classic hats she modeled this week. You never know what Mrs Farrell and Hattingdon are going to do next.

Hey! How about some vintage “Garden Party” lyrics by Ricky Nelson to go with this festive headpiece. Who can already hear this song in their head?

Happy weekend everyone!

GARDEN PARTY 1985

Lyrics

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn’t look the same

But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

And people came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
An’ over in the corner, much to my surprise
Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan’s shoes wearing his disguise

But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

Played them all the old songs, thought that’s why they came
No one heard the music, we didn’t look the same
I said, hello to “Mary Lou”, she belongs to me
When I sang a song about a honky-tonk, it was time to leave

But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode
Playing guitar like a-ringin’ a bell and lookin’ like he should
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I’d rather drive a truck

But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself
An’ it’s all right now, yeah, learned my lesson well
You see, ya can’t please everyone, so you got to please yourself
