Randolph charmingly entertained at luncheon yesterday at her home on the Heights, compliment ing Miss Dorothy Davis, whose mar riage to Mr. Ralph E. Macdonald will be a beautiful event of tomorrow af ternoon. The entire lower floor of the spa cious home was tastefully decorated with shasta daisies and greenery, the golden hearts of the daisies provid ing just the right touch of color to emphasize the green and white color scheme of the occasion. The dining room, where places were arranzed for J six at the prettily npointed luncheon table, was darkened, with white can-j dies burning in crystal candle-sticks i placed on the table about the artistic j centerpiece. A graceful arrangement of shasta daisies and maidenhair fern! was surrounded by lightly placed! tulle in white, veiling single daisies i and tiny sprays of maidenhair. Over the head of the honoree hung a large wedding bell in white, decorated with graceful spray of asparagus sgring eri. Marking the places were cards done in kewpie design, the kewpie in this case, being dressed in a long wedding veil. The handles of the gold-colored baskets containing green and white mints were decorated with single dais ies and bith of maiden hair. The delicious menu consisted of fruit" cocktail, fried chicken, creamed potatoes, petit pois in timbales, hot biscuit, pickles, and olives, pineap ple salad, Neapolitan ice cream and angel cake. Seated at the table on either side of the guest-of-honor, were the two dear little girls who will act as Miss Davis' flower girls tomor row ajternoon. Thysa little folks, Misses Ola Deare Vickers and Nancy Wilkerson, were dainti dressed to carry out the green and white color motif, in their fluffy white frocks with green hair ribbons and sashes. The honoree was likewise gowned in green and white, with corresponding hat. The others seated at the table were Miss Irene Yelvcrton, who will be Miss Davis' ma id-of -honor, and Misses Dorothy Merriam and Ella Mae Long, who will be her brides maids. After the ice course the small flow er girls slipped from their places, and returned carrying on a big silver tray a large box of stationery, the gift of the hostess for the pretty honoree. While Miss Davis bent her head in the task of untying this handsome gift, the little girls pulled satin rib bons, releasing a tiny shower of rice to fall about her. Assisting Mrs. Randolph yester day were Mrs. E. S. Crill, Mrs. E. W. Elliott, and Mrs. Goode M. Guerry, and these ladies, with Mr. Mercer Da vis, composed another pleasant little luncheon party on the big front porch. This porch is a delightful feature of this pleasant home, and after lunch con, a happy hour was there, where growing plants and vases of daisies and ferns added to its charm. Complimenting Seniors. A pretty compliment to the gradu ating class of St. Joseph's Academy n:ivtv n-iven hv Miss Nel! Bond at her home on North Third street yesterday afternoon. A pro fusion of shasta daisies was combined with asparagus fern and tastefully used in decoration, the color-scheme of gold and white being carried out wherever possible throughout the af ternoon. Heart dice provided the chief amusement, scores being kept on tal lies done in gold and white and bear ing "S. J. A." in script. When scores were compared at the conclusion of the game, it was found that Miss Ophelia Currie held high score, and to her was awarded a dainty cut-glass bud vase containing shasta daisies and ferns as prize, while to Miss Em ily Nerwich, who held low score, was presented a powder puff, tied with gold and white ribbons. Gold and white have been chosen by this class as its own colors. Throughout the afternoon, gold and white streamers fastened to the electric fan, fluttered gaily. Following the game, covers were laid on' the card tables, and dainty refreshments were served. These consisted of chicken salad in pumpkin cups, saltines, olives, and fruit punch, followed by orange sherbet with marshmallow cream, wafers and gold and white mints. Daisies and aspar agus fern were used in decorating the plates. Miss Bond presented as fav ors, odd little cards bearing quaint sayings.
