Decor: Bouquets of roses were set around the house and a large engagement ring balloon greeted guests.

Perfect entertainment: Questions and answers were posted throughout the house such as “How did they meet?” Answer: “Rowing.” Guests enjoyed finding out the facts since some of them were surprised about the wedding plans.

Occasion: A 60th anniversary cocktail reception for family owned McCubbin Hosiery was held at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Hosts were Mark and David McCubbin, grandsons of the founder. They greeted guests as they arrived and were joined by other family members, including D'Arline McCubbin, Marta McCubbin, Sarah and Alison McCubbin, Ashley McCubbin, Kimberly and Austin Heape and Becky McCubbin.

Decorations: A hosiery machine from 1915 sat at the front door of the country club. There was also a company timeline, company catalogs from the 1960s, portraits of Richard McCubbin and Chester McCubbin. Centerpieces were yarn cones (used for knitting) filled with flowers.
