THE SCENE: A picture perfect evening at the Original Irma’s in Houston was the setting for an evening where friends and family turned out to celebrate a real Texas original. These philanthropic, social and style influencers turned out in droves to celebrate the birthday of a woman who has given back so much to Houston, Texas and beyond – the legendary Carolyn Farb.

THE VIBE: As those near and dear to the guest of honor entered Original Irma’s they were warmly greeted by Farb, who was dressed in an ensemble inspired by Frida Kahlo complete with a handmade floral head dress. After greeting the guest of honor, partygoers mingled about the restaurant and enjoyed Original Irma’s legendary margaritas.

Guests then headed to their tables for world-class Mexican fare. Farb, ever the great hostess, expertly mixed familiar and new faces at each and every table ensuring the good times and conversation would freely flow throughout the evening. The evening was capped off with everyone singing Happy Birthday to the beloved Texan with toasts from dear friends and family. An original celebration for a true original.
