No Flourishing Fans. No Bonbons.

"The theatre has a gay appearance in these days with row after row of pretty women in light-colored attire and hair artistically arranged with pretty ornaments...With the exception of a bunch of violets, flowers are not worn at the theatre. The vigorous flourishing of fans is to be avoided, and eating bonbons is not good form." - The Etiquette of New York To-day by Mrs. Frank Learned, 1906

The Patti agrees.
