The Cavender Twins Debutante Party Supports German Club

THE SCENE: San Antonio’s historic Argyle provided the most splendid setting for a debutante’s dream of a magical soirée honoring C.C. and Abby Cavender, hosted by their parents Bobby and Stephanie Cavender. An all-white entrance tent served to create a winter wonderland feel, as it was divinely lined with flocked holiday trees and featured sparkling flutes of champagne suspended from the ceiling by long, white ribbons. Stilt-walking servers bedecked in all-white ensembles cut the individual ribbons and presented each party goer with a glass of bubbly to celebrate the beginning of a most spectacular evening. As guests proceeded to the main tent, they found themselves surrounded by yet one more monochromatic setting — all white though this one warmly illuminated by hundreds of candles, as envisioned by lead event planner Sara Fay Egan of Dallas party planners Jackson-Durham Events.
THE VIBE: A majestic transformation took place as the night progressed and red became the color of the evening. The band Party on the Moon provided an incredible ambience as all the lighting turned to red and all servers changed into red hats and ties and passed out all-red flair for the latter part of the night. What did that transition entail? A second line parade, of course. With umbrellas and napkins in hand, guests made their way to the “Cav O”Brien’s” after party styled as a dueling piano bar upstairs at the Argyle.
THE CAUSE: Formed in 1880, the San Antonio German Club has presented its debutantes during San Antonio’s social season for the past 136 years.
