Green and white was the color scheme which was well matched in the decorations, set off by vases of roses and carnations, "The menu served in courses was as follows: Blue Point Oysters. Celery and Olives. Consomme in Cups. Grilled Stripped Bass. Potatoes Gastronome - Mashed Potatoes. Stuffed Turkey, Cranberry Sauce. Salted Almonds - Champagne Punch. Broiled Quail on Toast. Sweet Potato Chips - French Peas. Fresh Lobster Salad. Neopolitan Ice Cream. Fancy Assorted Cake, Fruit, Mixed Nuts. Roquefort Cheese. Cafe Noir au Cognac."
