Something Blue: “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-Themed Bridal Shower + Wedding Inspiration
November 22, 2011
I have a confession: I watch “Gossip Girl” and I adore it. Yes, the plot lines often leave something to be desired, but the fashion is the reason I tune into the CW on Monday nights. In last night’s episode, it wasn’t a dress, handbag, or pair of pumps that had me ooohing and ahhhing, though–it was Blair Waldorf’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-themed bridal shower.
Did any of you see the episode? For those of you who don’t watch GG, let me fill you in: At the glamorous party for the bride-to-be, strands of pearls dangled from the ceiling, cocktails were served by waiters in tuxes, a gigantic cake in the shape of a Tiffany’s box took center stage, and genuine Tiffany’s boxes were handed out as favors–one containing a diamond ring.
Now, in real life, you’re not likely to give diamond rings as parting gifts. But, you CAN be inspired by the concept and decor of Blair’s bridal shower. Turns out, many brides have had “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-themed showers and some have even based their entire weddings on the classic Audrey Hepburn flick.
Check out some of these fun Tiffany-inspired ideas we found:
Love this: a” Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-inspired wedding breakfast! This inspiration board came from the Alannah Rose stationery blog. The stationer designed the board’s “Tiffany Be Mine” invitation for her love of all things blue and white.
Serve these locally made mini “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” cupcakes at a bridal shower or wedding reception. The Madagascar vanilla bean cupcakes are topped with Tiffany-blue cream cheese frosting and edible gems. From Mini Cupcakes in Salt Lake City.
How darling are these ideas from this “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Real Wedding via Martha Stewart Weddings? A blue + white bridal bouquet, mini blueberry pancakes with a doll-size pat of butter, and wedding favor boxes.
A graphic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” bridal shower invitation via Wedding Wire. Send the invite in a blue envelope or a flat, blue box tied with a white satin ribbon.
Dress your maids in varying shades of blue, like this Dessy After Six short chiffon bridesmaid dress and Jenny Yoo long crinkle chiffon bridesmaid dress. Dessy bridesmaid dresses are available in Salt Lake City at Lily & Iris, and Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dresses are available in Park City at Soiree Productions.
And last but not least, this Tiffany’s gift box cake designed by Jacqui’s Cakes would make an amazing wedding cake (if you can sell your groom on the theme, that is) or bridal shower cake.
