its gracious hospitality, was the
scene of a lovely reception Tuesday

the pictures, doors/ windows and
transformed the broad stair way.
Holly wreathes gave a festive air to
the soft window draperies. The many
lights of the chandeliers shown
through poinsettia shades, were a
vivid contrast to the glossy green

twined. Pots of blooming narcissus
lent their delicate fragrance through
out the lower floor of the home,
which was en suite for the brilliant

guests into the library where Mrs.
Patillo Blalock and Miss Sarah Lyon
served delicious punch from a howl
that was embowered in a mass of
Christmas tree foliage, with myriads
of the bright, red berries showing.
Victrola music enlivened the mer

Miss Tillman, in receiving the guests
and introducing them to their at
tractive house guests. Mrs. Tillman's
costume of cream lace over yellow
charmeuse, was most becoming to
her rich brunette beauty.
Miss Tillman was a vision of lovi
ness in a handsome American Beauty
panne velvet, eh train. An iridescent
sequin drapery enhanced the bodice
and a large ostrich fan of the same
glorious tint completed the wonder
ful costume. A corsage bouquet of
American Beauty roses was worn by
Mrs. R. B. Cooner. of Columbia, a
most attractive relative of Mrs. Till

French gown, the foundation of

of American Beauty velvet, which

Little Miss Marjorie Cooner, who

mints. She was a picture of childish
loveliness in her frock of pink taffe

a graceful silver butterfly gave the
impression that the little fairy could
as easily fly as trip on the daintily
shod tiny feet.
