Miss Louise Janin Makes Her Debut With Reception That Breathes of Exotic Art of the Renaissance
Even Whitman-Crocker Wedding
Breakfast Is Excelled
A great, gorgeous peacock of proud poise and shimmering color, symbol I
of the pomp and magnificence of medieval courts. ; c beauty and |
splendor of the wonderful reception and ba!i given last evening at the j
Palace hotel by Mr. and Mrs. Frederick William Sharon in honor of Mi?s
Lotttse Janin, daughter of Mrs. George H. Mendell Jr.
In a regal setting suggestive of a return to the richer, more exotic art
of the renaissance, when all nature quickened under the influence of a subtle i
rting. the society folk of San Francisco, bidden by the Sharons to meet {
the newest debutante, bade time turn backward, and for an evening dwelt in
the luxuriant garden of a Venetian palace.

:d and lavish that could be conceived, and the glory of the event out
shines any entertainment in the social history of California, not except
even the Whitman-Crocker wedding breakfast. Wealth and art contributed
:r all to make of the ballroom a scene of beauty incarnate—a fit setting
for the introduction to society of one of California's most favored belles.
The room was transformed into a garden pavilion of growing plants
and budding flowers, and fountains, pergolas, ioge>, with long vistas of
onlit terrace and lawn to be seen in the distance through green arb
