Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler (Let the Good Times Roll) was the mood recently at the celebratory party honoring three San Antonio German Club debutantes. With pandemic protocol in place, Abigail and George Kampmann, Jr., with their daughter Elizabeth Kampmann, Grace and Ted Liljenwall, with their daughter Emily Liljenwall, and Jennifer and Robert Shemwell, with their daughter Paris Shemwell welcomed guests into a Texas version of the best of The Big Easy.
The affair’s venue, San Antonio Country Club, was festively decorated like the famed Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans. Danny Cuellar of Trinity Flowers created the floral and décor themed Joyeux Noel Laissez Les Bons Temps Roulet, with the holiday theme taking center stage of the event.
The buffet and cocktails provided by the club served as a testament to the theme, while the attendees danced to the band, Limelight as the night progressed. The Boss Street Band, a five-piece brass jazz band from New Orleans, circulated from room to room throughout the party, providing even more flair to the evening.
