Wordless Wednesday: The Deb Ball Edition

I had the chance to go home for a few days earlier this month. I don’t get to go to Savannah often, but this trip was for a specific purpose — my baby sister’s debutante ball.

That’s right, y’all. I’m from the South.

Here’s the basic idea: it’s a huge summer of parties followed by a formal Christmas presentation that indicates that girls are eligible for marriage. There’s a lot of tradition associated with it, so if you’re curious, ask me.

  1. This is my question: if I didn’t have a debutante ball because I grew up in the midwest, can I have one now? I mostly want to do this for the cupcake display.

  4. Cotillion is fairly popular in Baltimore, where I am from. I didn’t participate, but my brother was a “date” or whatever you call the guys roll…I made fun of him for dressing like a Penguin. I was about 14

  5. Wow, that’s an amazing looking party! I love all of your dresses. I don’t think I even got birthday parties after I turned 11. I need to have a little talk with my parents…

        Thanks for the input girls, but
        1) I would like to point out that I was the coordinator and primary implementor for all of the decorations……and it WAS fabulous.
        2) Yes indeed it could not have been done without ALL of you.
        3) It went by WAY too fast
        4) Could we please do it again???

        Thanks for the post, Emmy. It was great for you to share this part of yourself and your family! xoxo
