At the moment, Sara is getting ready to go to a bridal shower for my cousin Jennie. It’s got a bit of a theme – an homage to Jennie’s style icon – Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. In keeping with the theme the ladies are all dressing Holly Golightly-style and Sara’s got on a black dress, flats and the pearl earrings I just got her for Christmas.
I thought in honour of Jennie and Ben (the goom to be), I’d whip up a post. My cousin Jaclyn (Jennie’s older sister) is a chef and party-planner extraordinaire, so no doubt it will be a fete to remember. But just so I can get my two cents in, here’s what I’m seeing for a party/ wedding like this…
How about a table scheme like this, inspired by the iconic Tiffany’s box? This scheme’s a little less sweet than some of the things I’m seeing out there and not so literal.
You’ve probably seen lots of wedding cakes in the shape of a Tiffany box, but how about this little number? I like that it will appeal to both bride and groom, and mixes that tradition with modernity (like the movie’s apartment).
Hope you like the gift Jennie! The Christmas ornament is for their first Christmas as a married couple – and I guess it kinda looks like a Tiffany’s diamond too!
