A beautiful Houston spring bloomed just in time for a trio of alfresco fetes. The perennial favorite Hats in the Park luncheon, this year chaired by Stephanie Cockrell, Marita Fairbanks and Houston CityBook’s Lisa Holthouse, honored Cece Fowler and Judy Nyquist for their contributions to the Hermann Park Conservancy’s Art in the Park campaign. Gals — and gents! — donned bright springtime colors and, of course, elaborate headpieces perfect for the sunny afternoon. ... Houstonians also got dressed up to go outside for the second annual Bayou Bend Fashion Show, featuring looks by Oscar de la Renta, whose designs will also be on display this fall during a retrospective exhibit at the MFAH. And thanks to the Galleria and Saks Fifth Avenue, the ladies who lunched could shop the clothing at an onsite pop-up shop! ... And on a splendid Sunday afternoon, Houston Oaks Country Club hosted its first-ever tailgate and exhibition polo match between the Plank Companies and Horsegate teams. Members, guests and families also enjoyed live music and a post-game barbecue.
