MAY 2018 

Unbridled Eve Derby Gala!

So many hats, so little time!  At least this month we can make good arguments for shopping for hats!  Think of all the events where a spectacular hat will turn heads--Mother's Day, the Kentucky Derby, Memorial Day, Cinco de Mayo (okay, that's a reach) and just plain old sunny days where one must take shelter from all that sunshine.  Classic Collections has a fabulous variety of hats this season.  Made of straw, silk, cotton or other materials, and available in solid colors, patterns, feathers and more, we can offer you a terrific topper for your pleasure!

Classic Coco Chanel!

Sally on Her Mother Sara's Lap!

Mother's Day is a celebration honoring the Mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society.  It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, typically in March and May.  

In the USA, Mother's Day was first celebrated on 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.  She wanted to honor her Mother, Ann Jarvis, for all of the work she had started by caring for wounded soldiers on both sides of the Civil War.  In 1911 all of the states recognized Mother's Day and in 1914 President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother's Day, to be held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor Mother's.

Mother's Day or the equivalent of it is celebrated in almost every country in the modern world.  As adopted by other countries and cultures, the holiday has different meanings and is associated with different events (religious holidays, dates with historical significance or legends), and is celebrated on different dates.  As the founder of the Modern Mother's Day, Anna Jarvis said, "a Mother is the person who has done more for you than anyone else in the world".  Who could argue with that?
