Mr. C. H. Dyar and his bride, who was Miss Pattie McWhorter, of Buckhead, arrived in the city Friday night and are stopping with Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Brogdon.

Mrs. Charles M. Chamlee and Mrs. Arthur E. Brogdon gave a large reception Saturday afternoon complimenting their brother’s bride, Mrs. Clifford H. Dyar.  The residence of Mrs. Chamlee which is well suited for entertaining was strikingly beautiful for the occasion.  The parlor was decorated in white and green.  The mantel was banked in ferns and roses.  The receiving party stood in front of a bank of ferns between double windows.  The dining room was beautiful in decorations of white and yellow.  Marechal neil roses were the flowers used.  The table had a lace cover over yellow.  At the four corners were glass baskets filled with roses and tied with yellow tulle.  The centre piece was a tall vase of brides roses and was surrounded by smaller vases filled with roses.  The crystal candle sticks held yellow candles with yellow shade. The color scheme was carried out in the refreshments which were served in several courses.  Miss Jessie Combs and Miss Lillian Bradley presided at the coffee table. Mrs. J. W. Bradley, Mrs. George Veach, Mrs. T. E. Bradley, Miss Alice Dyar and Miss Stella Brogdon also assisted in entertaining.  The punch room was in red.  Red candles and red roses gave it a brilliant glow.  Miss Hypatia Bowdoin and Miss Alice Dyar served the punch.

Receiving with the two hostesses and the charming honoree was Mrs. S. J. Whatley.  Mrs. Chamlee wore white silk princess, lace-trimmed with touches of blue, Mrs. Brogdon, a lingerie dress.  Mrs. Dyar was attractively gowned in pink satin becomingly fashioned.  Mrs. Whatley wore white messaline.

About seventy-five ladies called during the afternoon.
