I'm excited to share a Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired bridal shower we hosted several years ago. I came across these pictures recently and it brought back so many wonderful memories of my dear friend, Tiffany, who at the time was getting ready to marry the love of her life. I was honored to be one of her bridesmaids and to be a part of this special time in her life.
The private residence we held the shower at was simply perfect. The covered patio made for a wonderful intimate gathering space and the white gravel pavement truly added a special touch to the ambience.
The tiffany blue custom pocket cover housed the invitation which featured delicate floral images and elegant script font. Baby's breath flowers and diamond shaped resins were used throughout on the buffet table and as centerpieces. At each setting, guests received a hand crafted Tiffany Box filled with Earl Grey Ganache Vanilla Bean Macarons baked by May, Maid of Honor and close friend, who happens to be an incredibly talented chef.
The breakfast buffet table included donuts, muffins, bagels, crispy bacon with scrambled eggs, mini pancake stacks, french toasts, parfaits with raspberry, and granola clusters. Yum!!
Guests were asked to dress for the occasion and arrive in a little black dress. Everyone looked fabulous especially the guest of honor in her tiara that we made her wear! For cake, we served homemade Tiramisu. Yes, it tasted just as good as it looked!
We decided to forgo the typical shower games and instead created a simple yet fun activity that payed homage to the cracker jack reference in the film. Each custom popcorn box were filled with cracker jacks and a "special prize" inside; a silver ring. We inscribed one with Tiffany's initial and whoever had the marked ring was our winner. We also had blank cards created for guests to write a wedding blessing to the fabulous couple.
I can't believe how fast 4 years have flown by but I'm so thankful we have memories captured on camera to look back on. Moments like these stay in your heart forever despite how many more years continue to pass.
