It was Derby Day 13 years ago when Brette Baughman, daughter of Amy Baughman, was born. Amy distinctly remembers Real Quiet winning the Derby that day, May 2, 1998, and Brette has always been known as a “Derby baby.”
Brette turned 13 this year, and she was honored by her mother, family and friends with a lovely girls’ tea at Whitehall on May 2. Whitehall was a far cry from “real quiet,” as it was filled with the chatter and laughter of Brette’s friends. More than 20 girls from Holy Trinity, Collegiate, Our Lady of Lourdes and Holy Spirit filed into the gorgeous historic home to take part in a fun afternoon of dressing up and acting grown up.
Brette’s mom had gathered vintage gowns dating back to the ’70s from friends and family members, and the girls chose their favorites for the tea. After a hair and makeup session conducted by cousin, Lexi Baughman, and friend, Amy Broyles, the girls made the descent down the beautiful winding staircase of Whitehall to join Brette for a lively tea and cake party in the parlor.
In lieu of presents, Brette had requested gifts and gift cards from her friends to be taken to an 8-year-old patient Brette has “adopted” in the Norton Cancer Unit.
Happy birthday, Brette. We are so glad you are anything but “real quiet!”
