"That's right. I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!"

I may not be crazy about Tiffany's, but my sister is. Her fiance bought her engagement ring from Tiffany's and randomly surprises her with jewlery from there for no reason. Lucky girl! So I think it is fitting that her wedding shower will be inspired by the one and only Holly Golightly. That's right....we are doing a Breakfast at Tiffanys theme.

Like my engagment party, the party theme started with one object- A cake (mine was a cupcake). Sister Newport found a cake in the shape of a Tiffany's box. She is a pretty laid back bride and tells us to do whatever, in every aspect of the wedding, but she told me she really wanted this at the shower. As soon as I saw it a lightbulb went off.

Martha Stewart and the Today show threw a Breakfast at Tiffany's themed wedding and featured it in the Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. I went through my magazine stack and found it! I showed it to my mom and ideas started spinning. Don't you just love Martha?

Inspiration from Martha:

I love this idea for shower game prizes!

My sister knows nothing about the shower, but I told her it is going to amazing, so she is having her wedding photographers come to the shower to take some pictures! This works out perfectly because we are setting up a photo booth area with props from the movie, another Martha idea! I've already started picking items up at the bulk jewlery places in Manhattan, NY. They are great for cheap jewlery, especially the places near Macy's!

Here are some examples from the photo area at the Martha Stewart Tiffany's wedding:
How fun are tehse shots? I can't wait to see how our guest shots come out! We are totally going to do black and white film for these!
I'd really love to find the mask from the movie!

I'm trying to come up with fun invitations. I'm debating between using Audrey Hepburn on the invite or a Tiffany's box with movie inspired quotes.

Quotes for inspiration from Breakfast at Tiffany's

"I don't want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I'm not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It's like Tiffany's."

"That's right. I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!"

"Did I tell you how divinely and utterly happy I am?"

We are doing a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" themed bridal shower for my daughter on April 11th. OMG I'm having so much fun with it. Both my daughters are photographers and artists so you can only imagine the possibilities. We did an Audrey photo shoot and designed the invites. I will be taking tons of pics and will post them after the shower. When is your shower?
