The Elenian Club held its Debutante Tea recently at Longue Vue Gardens in New Orleans.

The debutantes and ladies -in-waiting were introduced to the Elenian members and guests.

It was the first of several activities that will be held in their honor preceding the Ballo di Natale on Saturday,. Each debutante received a Capodimonte Red Rose, the flower of the Elenian Club, to commemorate her special day.

All the debutantes and ladies-in-waiting will be presented at the Ballo di Natale at the JW Marriott.
