THE BRADLEY MARTIN BALL Preparations Nearly Completed for an Entertainment in Society Which Promises to be Historic.
THE BRADLEY MARTIN BALL
Preparations Nearly Completed for an
Entertainment in Society Which
Promises to be Historic. The New York Times - February 7, 1897
DECORATIONS AND COSTUMES.
Costume balls are not a novelty in New York, but in the prominence of the guests, the lavishness of its appointments, the broad scale of its plan, the beauty and brilliancy of the dresses to be worn, and the public as well as social interest and excitement it arouses, the costume ball to be given by Mrs. Bradley Martin at the Waldorf Hotel next Wednesday night will, it is expected, not only far surpass any previous event of the kind in America, but will even rival, if it does not excel, the famous fancy dress ball given at Warwick Castle, in England, in the Winter of 1895.
For nearly three weeks New York society has made the coming ball its one topic of discussion, with the result that the usual entertainments of the Winter season have sunk into comparative insignificance. English, French, and German history of the period from 1500 to 1900, which has been selected by Mrs. Martin as that to which the costumes of her guests must conform, has been searched in quest of facts and information. Old wardrobes have been ransacked and costumers, milliners, dressmakers, and wig makers, and even jewelers, have been besieged, by a small army of people bidden to the ball, and who have labored assiduously to attire themselves as was never Solomon in all his glory.
This morning the hostess and her guests have about finished their preparations for the ball, and the story which follows details these and presents, as it were, an advance word picture of the coming event.
Flowers, Vines, and Rare Tapestries in
Profusion — The Music, the
Supper, and Dancing.
Nearly all the arrangements for the Bradley Martin ball are now completed. The guests will begin to arrive about 11 P. M., entering by the door to Manager Boldt's house, on the West Thirty-third Street side of the Waldorf. In the five rooms they will here pass no attempt will be made at decorations. Reaching the first floor of the hotel proper, they will ascend to the corridors on the second floor, where fifteen rooms, including the Astor dining room, will be "used for dressing apartments. Here will be found the hair dressers, costumers, modistes, and all functionaries needed for the final polishing touches of the toilet. The decorations here will be simple and homelike, according to the wishes of the hostess herself. No attempt at wall decorations will be seen, but superb vases filled ¦with a profusion of mixed roses, to harmonize with the color schemes, will rest on the tables, mantels, &c. Final preparations all made, the guests will descend to the reception room on the first floor, passing on the way a massive mirror solidly framed in American Beauty roses. Turning to the right, at the foot of the staircase, they will enter the small ballroom and be met by the hostess on a slightly raised dais. Mrs. Martin will stand beneath a canopy of rare old tapestries from her own mansion. Lackeys will announce the names of the guests and the characters they personate.
The decorations in this ballroom will be exquisite, unique, and profuse. All the walls, to begin with, will be hung with tapestry draperies, and a perfect riot of mixed roses, thrown at them in a careless way, will rest in the folds, just as they happen to fall. Not a set piece of any kind will be visible, but the furniture will be entirely Louis XV., and the floral display will harmonize with that period, when garlands were all the vogue. The side of this room, where the Hungarian band is to be stationed, will be completely hidden behind a bower of long-stemmed roses, trained from the centre high up, and radiating to all sides over the mirrors, giving a warm and festal effect to the splendid scene. From this salon the guests will pass through the corridors (which are to mimic woodland bowers, completely covered with green, and lit by miniature incandescent lights) to the main ballroom, where the most gorgeous floral decorations will be seen. The guests, on entering, will face the wall, in which fifteen immense mirrors are imbedded to the depth of about three feet. From the wall, above each mirror, will hang rich festoons of Louzet garlands, entwined with the Demousa vine, and the most lavish display of mauve orchids ever seen in New York. These floral splendors, suspended beyond the retreating mirrors, will serve as a canopy over the guests seated around the room. In addition to this, all the candelabra at the sides are to have pendent from them large pouches of blue silk, bursting with a wealth of pink roses. Pink roses also in endless profusion will conceal the far side of this room, where the musicians' balcony stands, and garlands will hang in bountiful clusters from its curves and posts. Beneath this balcony the guests will find green-covered flirtation nooks, sylvan little dells overhung with clematis, gathered from many points in the South for this occasion.
While the guests are gathering the Hungarian Band, under the leadership of Carl Berlinger, will play the following concert selections, made by Mrs. Martin:
1. March and Chorus, "Tannhauser"
2. Overture, " Stradella "...........Flotow
3. Hungarian Melodies, with violin solo

4. Grand selection, " Cavalleria Rusticana "
5. a " Narcissus " ............... Neavens
b " Intermezzo Russe " ........Franke
6. Selection, " Mignon " ...........Thomas
7. " Legende " ............... Wieniawski

8. Grand selection, " Echoes from the

9. Second Hungarian Rhapsodie......Liszt
10. Prelude, "Lohengrin".........Wagner
11. a " Valse Lente " ...............Delibes
b " Loin du Bal ".................Gillet
c Spanish serenade, " Lolita "....Langey
12. a Hungarian Gypsy Airs...........Raez
b Hungarian March, " Rakoczy "...Liszt
It will, no doubt, be midnight before the quadrilles of honor will open the ball. Of these there will be three. The first, which has been arranged by Mrs. Astor, Sr., will contain Mrs. Martin, Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish, Mrs. Orme Wilson, Mrs. Whitney Warren, Miss Madeline Cutting, Miss Angelica Gerry, Mrs. T. Suffern Tailor, J. J. Van Alen. John Jacob Astor, Lispenard Stewart, Craig Wadsworth, Harry Lehr, J. Townsend Martin, and Center Hitchcock.
After the Astor quadrille will come that arranged by Mrs. Frederic Bronson, to be followed by the third, arranged by Mrs. Edmund L. Baylies. Prominent among the dancers in these quadrilles will be Mrs. John Jacob Astor, Miss Bronson, Miss Alice Babcock, Miss Josephine Brooks, Miss Van Alen, Mrs. Henry Sloane, Mrs. J. F. D. Lanier, Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt, Miss. Alice Blight, Miss Evelyn Burden, Miss Van Rensselaer, James De Wolf Cutting, William Sloane, J. Searle Barclay, Jr., Stanley Mortimer, William Rutherford, Craig Wadsworth, Frederic Watrous, H. D. Robbins, and Frank C. Bishop.
General dancing will follow the three quadrilles till supper time. The guests will descend to the Empire dining rooms, where 325-tables, each accommodating six guests, will be adorned with superb centre pieces of beauty roses, but no floral display beyond this will be attempted. The supper itself will very much resemble those furnished for the Patriarch and Assembly balls, embracing canvasback, terrapin, and champagne.
It has been decided that Ellsha Dyer, Jr., will lead the cotillion, to follow supper, and it is also quite probable that Worthington Whitehouse will be a second leader and that the cotillion will proceed simultaneously from two centres.
The display of jewels will undoubtedly be the most dazzling ever witnessed in this city. For some days the leading jewelers have been busy-brightening up costly family heirlooms, to be worn on this occasion. Necklaces and brooches and bracelets of great age and regal splendor, will flash for the first time on the fair necks and bosoms and arms of the ladies, while the gentlemen will bring forth rare jeweled buckles and diamond-studded swords and decorations of generations long gone by.
In order to furnish, ample protection for all this wealth of gems, a number of detectives will be present, employed as supernumeraries and in appropriate costume, of course. Capt. Chapman will also have a strong police detail at the entrance, to keep back the crowds of lookers-on.
COSTUMES OF THE GUESTS.
History Ransacked to Provide Fancy
Dress for Those Who Are

The costumes to be worn by the guests at the ball will undoubtedly be, as a whole, the handsomest ever seen at a fancy dress entertainment in America, and will rival, if
