The orchid is Miss Gram’s hair blended with the chartreuse trim of the black afternoon dress she wore for her engagement tea. Mrs. Gram was attired in a black gown and wore red camellias.
Present at the tea were Mr. Blood’s mother and his two sisters, Mrs. Charles S. Davis, jr., and Mrs. J. Nall Candler, all of Detroit.
