Twenty-five guests, including the six children of the honored couple and their families attended the dinner. The color scheme of the decorations was carried out in deep yellow and gold. Lovely seasonal flowers also were in evidence. During the day and evening, Mr. and Mrs. Brehm received many congratulations. They were the recipients of several gifts of gold.
