Bride & Co.

Events     |    December 30th, 2015

About a month ago, I had the privilege of throwing my friend/newest cousin, Victoria, a bridal shower at my home. If you had told me last year I would be throwing two bridal showers in 2015 I would never have believed it! But love cannot be stopped and after my cousin proposed to the lovely Miss V, the wedding date was set and I could not wait to throw her a lovely bridal shower.

The theme for the shower was born from her birthday photo shoot to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Victoria’s birthday and the anniversary of her favorite film fell on the same day so some adult dress up was in order. And with those two photos stolen from her Instagram, the Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed bridal shower began to take shape!

The movie played silently during the shower, while the music was from the film's soundtrack.

Decorating for the shower was a lot of fun. I tried to create a “vintage jewelry shop” vibe throughout my apartment. Neck forms with varied pearl necklaces adorned the tabletops while bags from Tiffany’s and homemade “blue” boxes added pops of color.

It’s hard to choose which was my favorite decor piece from the shower. But it may be a tie between the Tiffany & Co. floral arrangements and framed Audrey Hepburn quotes.

As much as I wish I could say these Tiffany bags were leftovers from all the jewelry I’ve received through the years, the truth is I found them on eBay! And authentic at that.

For these little Tiffany blue boxes, I actually used “Bahama Blue” acrylic paint by Americana and painted some simple dollar store boxes. They looked very authentic! Well at least from a distance. Thank you Pinterest.

Unless you are a diehard Breakfast at Tiffany’s fan, this piece of decor was fairly easy to overlook. In homage to the scene where Paul/Fred is searching for the telephone, which has been hidden in Holly Golightly’s suitcase to muffle the ring, I created this little setup.

For brunch I created a yogurt bar spread complete with granola, berries, almonds and honey. We served them in martini glasses to keep with the boozy party vibes seen so frequently in the film. There were also croissants (of course), Madelines, and mimosas galore.

This gorgeous tassel garland is from Studio Mucci and was handmade in LA.

My mom was really helpful in pulling the shower together.

I’m beginning to feel like an old pro at this Bridal Shower planning thing! Honestly the more of these parties I help put together, the more fun they are, and the more I find myself loving hostessing. I can’t wait to see what happens in 2016… If I would have to guess, I would say we can all expect another party or two.

Very excited to now call this lady my cousin!
