Helen Ford Wallace: Parties, Etc.: April 6

OCG&CC President's Ball, English Speaking Union Dinner, OU Winners, Spring Golf Luncheon
By Helen Ford Wallace Published: April 6, 2014


Occasion: Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club President Jim Hazelwood, and his wife, Cindy, were honorees at the President’s Ball.

Say cheese: Past presidents got together for a group photo. As guests entered the foyer, a party pic machine was set up and gave guests an opportunity to have their photos taken. They were sent directly to their phones and email addresses.

Find your place: Table assignments were names of Napa/Sonoma wineries instead of numbers. Place setting cards were displayed in halved wine corks.

Vineyard theme: Special food and wine pairings were served using a Napa Valley vineyard theme. Wine barrel lazy susans were in the middle of each table with such menu items as Maytag bleu cheese, citrus brined olives, Marcona almonds, peanut butter and mushroom macarons served with tiny tubes of jalapeno and caramelized onion jelly. Also there was bleu cheese cakes with fruit caviar, and deconstructed reubens made with a Swiss-rye wafer, dried corned beef and sauerkraut. Also served was beef tenderloin, and chocolate grapefruit tart, chocolate sorbet and caramel sauce. Tall topiary trees filled with sunflowers, mums and roses were centerpieces. Woven hemp-colored linen tablecloths and napkins were used and the napkins were tied with raffia ribbons with red roses.
