On April 21, the Cahaba Grand was the setting for the Midnight Ball, a presentation of 138 Mountain Brook young ladies and their escorts.
Time was of the essence at the 2012 Midnight Ball. Guests climbed the grand stairway under the large hanging clocks, which carried the theme created by Robert Logan of Backstage Florist. Each clock read five ‘til midnight in anticipation of the festivities to come. The guests entered he large ballroom to a view of a ceiling-high projected video of fireworks shooting from Big Ben. The tables were adorned with glittering Roman numerals surrounded by tiny white orchids. An art deco theme was reflected in the black, white and silver color scheme with large Roman numerals scattered around the room.
Carrie Morrow was the chairwoman of the Midnight Ball, and Lee Dawkins and Margie Seeger were the co- chairwomen. The ball committee consisted of 31 mothers.
