The residence of Mrs. John C. Hood in Northwest Kinston was the scene of a significant Easter egg hunt at which certain letters were put together to reveal an interesting future event. The interior of the house was attractively decorated with peach blooms, wisteria, and bamboo. These were in profusion and hid the Easter eggs, which were hand-painted. Rabbits “popped up” behind conspicuously large letters lying prone on grass or leaning tipsily where they might attract attention. The guests assembled the letters into many words and some of the results of their endeavors were amusing. The letters when arranged as they had been intended spelled “Marianna and Oliver.” Small Miss Anne Dixon Hood as a Cupid with a bow and arrow entered and let fly a dart straight at the heart of Miss Marianna Stanley. The dart bore the date, May 12, 1920. The prospective bridegroom is Mr. Oliver Westbrook of this city. The refreshments were unique. Bridal bouquets adorned the cake. A frozen basket made of ice cream was heaped with whipped cream. Misses Lillie Stanley and Estelle Westbrook and little Miss Lucinda Hood served. Those present were Mrs. Arthur Blanchard of Raleigh, house guest of Mrs. Hood; Misses Marianna Stanley, Leora Hooker, Lucy Haskitt, Nannie Stanley, Sophia Knott, Sallie Stanley, Ida Oettinger, Mrs. J.A. Long, Mrs. Jack Temple, Mrs. W. Allen Knott, Mrs. George Knott, and Mrs. Chester Walsh.
