The Elenian Club recently held its Debutante Tea in the Playhouse at Longue Vue House and Gardens. Each table was decorated with porcelain white tea pots filled with red roses and baby’s breath. The red rose is the flower of the Elenian Club.
The debs, ladies in waiting and guests were welcomed by the co-chairwoman of the English Tea, Maria Villafranco. Each debutante was presented a porcelain red rose and the ladies in waiting were given a crystal red rose in remembrance of their day at Longue Vue.
Ladies in waiting are Kate Marie D’Arensbourg; Hailey Grace D’Arensbourg; Camille Marie D’Arensbourg; Elliena Marie Ingraham; Ava Elizabeth D’Arensbourg and Lora Elise D’Arensbourg.
Debutantes are Sophia Marie Bankson; Francesca Rose DeVille; Marissa Antoinette Orlando; Courtney Nicole Tanner; Olivia Annabelle Kilpatrick; and Ann-Marie Louise Hasney.
The club has since held its Ballo di Natale at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside in the Versailles Ballroom. For information about the Elenian Club, call Maria Villafranco at (504) 416-4096.
