The Southern Debutante Assembly’s 2010 Presentation and White and Gold Ball was held on the evening of Dec. 29 at the Greenwood Country Club in Greenwood. Thirty-three debutantes were presented to society at the event.
The honorees were presented before an imposing arrangement of white gladioli, dendrobium orchids, lacy white mums, mint green Fuji mums, white hydrangeas, bells of Ireland, pussy willow stems, baby’s breath, eucalyptus and palm fronds.
At the opposite end of the ballroom, the debutantes stood on a dais in front of a garden trellis lined with nandina, English boxwood and eucalyptus and laced with twinkle lights. Four tall columns stood at intervals before the trellis, each topped with an arrangement of white spray orchids and nandina.
Dressed in white formal ball gowns, the debutantes carried bouquets of ivory enchantment roses hand-tied with gold silk embroidered ribbon.
The pages wore long gowns of holly berry red silk and carried nosegays of holly greenery interspersed with white enchantment roses and hand-tied with gold silk ribbon.
Pages to the debutantes included: Ann Gray Flowers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Mattson Gregory Flowers of Clarksdale; and Katherine Faulkner Flowers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Taylor Allen Flowers Jr. of Dublin.
