There were beautiful young women in gorgeous white dresses. There was a King. There were royal pages escorting the King. There were decorative crowns made out of flowers. There were flowers, flowers, flowers by Trochta’s. There were well mannered, well-dressed young men who were escorts. There were debonair fathers who were escorts. There were elegant dignitaries. There was a celebrity voice announcer. There were guests in elaborate long dresses. There were 16 former Kings.
All of this wonderfulness was under the direction of Beaux Arts Ball chairman Connell Branan and her co-chairman Bebe MacKellar. The Ball was at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. It is traditionally the Saturday night after Thanksgiving.
Tables held bouquets of hydrangeas and roses and there were colorful flower swags topped with crowns over the doorways. A crown created entirely from flowers was hung over the fireplace over the area where The King’s Chair was placed.
