Breakfast is Served: The Details

Planning the details of the shower was so much fun! I absolutely love themes. Once I have a theme, I just run with it. I wanted to go for something classic, so I did hold myself back on going too crazy with elements from the film.

To incorporate the film, all table numbers were photos of Audrey Hepburn from the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. It was subtle, but fun.
The flowers turned out gorgeous. If I weren't having a semi-destination wedding, I would so have Newport mom do the flowers for my wedding! They came out amazing. We were originally going with just roses, but she wanted more fullness and decided at the last minute to get hydrangeas, too.
Sister Newport loved the details. After a lot of hugs and hellos, she took some time to soak it all in.

Audrey, a.k.a. Holley Gollightly appeared again on the escort cards. Our two nods to the film.
Favors were little blue boxes from Papyrus filled with M&M's inspired by Tiffany's signature little blue box, but with more of a Martha Stewartesque twist with a more pastel shade.
Shower game prizes were enclosed in Tiffany & Co. bags.
And last but not least, my favorite detail of the day, was the venue itself. The Langham is so incredibly gorgeous with it's drapes, gold chairs and linens and sparkly chandeliers. The room itself needed very little decor. It was so stunning itself.
Did you have a themed shower, or have you thrown a themed shower?
