At a party organized by her great aunt, Sandra Vitone, Brooke, in long gown, stands wet in a soybean field that touches the yard where Arathea Booth and her two children, Gabriel Booth and Elizabeth Dunn, reside. Most years Arathea’s mom, Sandra, a former hippy and Woodstock Music and Art Fair attendee, puts together some themed party such as Hawaiian luau, Krishna consciousness and, this year, a medieval renaissance fair party. With a love for ornamentation and tendencies toward hoarding, Sandra, being an avid patron of Goodwill and other thrift stores, is able to appoint these get-togethers with plenty of props providing fun and visual texture.
