Sarah and Dan Hogan celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with a party at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club. They invited friends and family members for a cocktail buffet.
Flowers and glowing candles were everywhere throughout the Club. At the front door were colorful bouquets of peonies, roses, orchids, larkspur, lilies, hydrangeas and all sizes of candles. Dave Morris on the piano greeted guests as they arrived. A table inside was set with wedding photos including the bride, groom, cake, and wedding party. The table was also decorated with huge bouquets and candles and bowls of small boxes filled with candy for guests to take home as party favors. A note accompanied the boxes with thanks from the couple and a quote in part from Garrison Keillar: "When you've been together long, your anniversary should be marked with feast and song, do it gloriously." (The Hogans did it gloriously!)
A gourmet buffet of beef tenderloin, salmon, salad, the various vegetables was served, and the dessert table was spectacular. Silver candelabrum held tall candles. There were mini-parfaits, fruit tarts, chocolate candy and mini-cakes, all served on elegant silver trays and dishes.
