Happy Birthday Barton Bees !

We celebrated our 5th birthday with a wonderful cake made by our very own Hilary and entertained by the flamboyant Simon Meanwell-Ralph from Marvellous Millinery in Winchester. He talked about the creation of bespoke hats and how the back of the hat is just as important as the front. With each anecdote he brought out one of his beautiful headpieces and adorned one of the audience with it. He explained etiquette ( you can't get into the Royal Enclosure in a fascinator ! ) and how he likes to incorporate symbolism in his designs to reflect the occasion and personality of the wearer. We all agreed we looked fab-u-lous!!
