Shower for Bride-Elect
(Written for last week's Tennessean)
Moran, of Dresden, Tenn., will be the notable even in social circles on Wednesday, November 22.
A gracious welcome was extended to the guests by Mrs. Norvell who was lovely in white media elaborately hand-embroidered in lavender.
The honoree was beautiful in a handsome gown of lavender broadcloth.
The hostess was assisted in receiving by Miss Martha Belle Shumate. In blue crepe-de-chene, Miss Olive Fields of Dyersburg, in hand-embroidered media with trimmings of real lace, and Miss Grace Shelton, of Covington, in white
The entire lower floor was thrown together, and the attractive decorations, carrying out the color motif of green and white were artistically arranged.
After Mrs. E. Marion Clerc had pres- ented each guest with a daintily hand-painted score card they were invited
into the beautiful dining room where Mrs. Franklin Grisham, in her usual charming manner, served punch.
Rook was played, and upon compario-son of scores, Mesdames William L. Cawthon and Alfred Williams were highest for the drawing. Mrs. Williams was successful in receiving the ex-quisite cut glass vase.
Intense interest was manifested when the bride-elect started in her search for the many and handsome gifts showered upon her by her friends.
Mrs. Norvell made a unique feature in this part of the entertainment by forming an immense spider net of green
ribbon - each ribbon led to the hiding place of some gift.
The Misses Dickey charmingly assisted their sister, Mrs. Morvell, in serving a daintily appointed two-course luncheon in which the color scheme of green and white was attractively used.
The favors were water lilies filled with rice, the latter being used as a farewell shower upon the honoree.
The invited guests numbered sixty. This shower was pronounced one of the most elaborate as well as one of the most enjoyable social functions ever given in Newbern.
