It’s A Nawlins Dawlins Pawty

The debut season is well underway, and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to celebrate because everyone is in town. Ellie Beuerman, Claire Brown, Cheney Gardner, Ellie Gardner, Ainsley Mumford, Jennifer Leigh St. Paul and Lauren Terral wanted a real New Orleans party, so their parents went into high gear to pull out all the stops! They had Bunny Matthews create the invitation featuring Vic and Nat’ly and then contacted Jeremy Schreiber of NOLA Boils Catering. The Rendon Inn’s Dugout and Hangar 13 was the place, and Randy Gervais and Royal Productions created the lighting and streetcars complete with the girls’ pictures so it looked like they were riding into the party. The street was blocked off so they could feature New Orleans artist Dr. Bob and Mr. Okra’s Truck as well as the Lucky Dog man, the Roman Candy truck, beignets, boiled seafood, oyster and shrimp shooters in pirogues and the NOLA Boils truck with a huge TV screen featuring the football game. Inside, they had grillades and grits, poor boys, andouille sausage, meat pies and more.

Before the band LUV SEXY took the stage at 9 p.m., The Black Men of Labor with the Tremé Brass Band snaked through the party, playing, singing and dancing to get everyone in the mood. Then the debutante honorees took the stage with the band all dressed in gold and sang to top off the evening! What a night!
