The Annual Queen's Tea sponsored by the Dallas/Fort Worth Branch of the English-Speaking Union is to be held Sun. May 15th, at the Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas.  In honor of the 90th Birthday of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, this year's annual tea is open to the public.


A special attraction this year is the appearance noted Dallas hat designer Cassandra “Cassie” MacGregor of The House of MacGregor Hats, who is bringing a parade of her custom hats for “show and tell” and “sale.”


Cassie is the product of a milliner’s class at NY’s famous Fashion Institute of Technology and an apprenticeship with acclaimed milliner Albertus Swanepoel, where she helped design hats for Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler. Soon thereafter setting up shop in Dallas, Cassie became the go-to gal for bespoke headwear.  Her Bishop Arts studio sells cloches, newsboys, fedoras, bow ties, vintage cufflinks, retro cocktail hats, and bridal accessories by appointment only.


“Hats and all things English go together,” says DFW English-Speaking Union president Ruth Mader. “We know the Queen would be thrilled to see us all wearing stylish hats.  How wonderful of The House of MacGregor to bring a selection for us to model and purchase if we find that oh, so special one we cannot refuse.”


The Sun., May 15th  English Tea begins at 12:30 PM in the Sam Rayburn Room of the Adolphus Hotel, 1321 Commerce St., Dallas TX 75202.  After a welcome champagne or bloody Mary cocktail, guests will enjoy a selection of teas followed by a service of finger sandwiches, fresh mozzarella, smoked turkey, and curried chicken salad and egg salad.   Tickets are $59.00 each and may be purchased from Hon. Judge Jim W. Kerr, Jr. at jayemurray@juno.com.
