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.
