It’s been a wild and crazy party season in Houston, filled with lots of giving (some of it record breaking) and loads of fun. The winter/spring social season started with a bang thanks to the round of very merry Super Bowl parties and continued month after month with creative fundraising events. We’ve been to most of them and photographed most of you in one style of dress or another.
As the season rolls to a screeching halt, we have time to look back over the party landscape and, ah, the memories of those wild and wicked nights, of those splendorous galas and the midday mashups. Join us as we wander through the just-passed party scene via a few of our favorite photos.
These are the party pictures you’ll remember long after the night or day is gone.
