Misse Nanni and Sallie Lynch were the hostesses a beautifully appointed luncheon Wednesday last at their hospitable home a few miles east of town. The colors, pink and green, prevailed in the table decorations and appeared in other details of a delicious six course menu. The center of the table was marked by a silver candelabra encircled with a wreath of green foliage daintily entwined with pink maline. The pretty effect of which was enhanced by the soft glow of candles. Each guest found by her plate a dainty peace card designed by the hostesses and on which was inscrived a clever conundrum to be answered in turn by the guests. Those who enjoyed the hospitality of the Misses Lynch were Misses V. Routh, Beulah Seacat. Don Shuler, Harriet Dickenson, Ada and Mary Alderson.
