Houston's Most Colorful Gala Kicks Off in Psychedelic Style

MONTHS AFTER ITS bangin' 40th-anniversary bash, Houston's Orange Show for Visionary Arts kicked off its followup gala — which has a lot to live up to. But with a theme of "Repsychedelic," the 41st-annual Orange Show Gala is poised to be just as colorful.


The kickoff party took place at the C. Baldwin hotel's new event space, Parlour Hideaway, the centerpiece of which is an eight-foot crystal chandelier hanging over a pink bar. The night was filled with vibrant, vintage frocks and Champagne toasts ahead of the main party on Nov. 5. Celeb chef Chris Cosentino prepared the menu of mouthwatering hors d'oeuvres, which touted caviar "cannoncini" and truffle-taleggio crescentine. Yum!
