Holiday event held in Norman

by Helen Ford Wallace Published: January 4, 2011

Chris Purcell and Donna Hughes entertained at their annual Holiday Brunch in Norman. The women alternate homes for the party and this year it was in the Hughes home. Their invitation to their guests said: Joy is Christmas, family and you!” and “No presents, just joy!”

Christmas decorations were everywhere. The front door had large swags of greenery with pinecones, poinsettias, ornaments and ribbons. The staircase was lined with carnations and beautiful leaves and berries and ornaments.
