Guests invited to one of the Beaux Arts Ball summer parties received their invitation via colorful yard signs.
Hosts are having a yard party for debutantes, escorts and their parents. They are Matthew Rooney, Christina Ellis, Towns Holmboe, Jeffrey Semtner, George Mason and Jacob Archer.
One of the parents, Joanie Holmboe, thought up using the Yarddawgz theme and Kym Mason knows croquet rules, so they started there. The group gathered at Kite Park for pictures in their “whites.” Another mother, Elaine Archer, took photos and Gayle Semtner worked with the artist for the clever yard sign.
Semtner said that “the invitations were put in place the night before the 70 mile an hour winds, so we are not exactly sure they stayed in place, but we are optimistic.”
The group will play croquet, badminton, bocci ball and ping pong.
After a round of parties, the Beaux Arts Ball is scheduled for Novemer 28 at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Connell Branan is chairman and Bebe MacKellar is co-chairman.
