Breakfast at Tiffany's Party Decor

We celebrated Mary Ashley's 10th birthday with a Tiffany-themed party in celebration of two big milestones: reaching double digits and getting her ears pierced! We invited guests to join us for brunch and asked them to bring a gift of earrings.

Simple but iconic invitations set the tone for our special celebration. I used 8.5x11 Tiffany-blue scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby to make two trifold cards per sheet. I printed Lester & Co. on the opalescent paper before cutting the pages in half lengthwise and folding into thirds. Next I printed party details on shimmering ivory paper (6 text boxes per 8.5x11 sheet), cut the text boxes with decorative scissors, and glued the party details inside the card. A pair of sparkly rhinestone stickers completed the inside, and silky ribbon finished the invitations with a fluffy bow. See more details of the invitations here.

White hydrangeas added softness to our tablescapes. Friend and floral designer Haley Scott brought flowers and spent the Friday evening before the party helping us with party preparations. Having friends help pull all the details together can be such a lifesaver!

You get a glimpse of our dining room in this photo. I added picture-frame moulding over New Year's, and Joe painted the room a few days before the party. I will share more details on this makeover in an upcoming post. Party site Shindigz offered me a generous $100 gift certificate to use toward Mary Ashley's celebration. I found a wealth of products that fit our theme, including the Martha Stewart Pom Pom Garland shown above (find it in pink here).

This table greeted guests in our foyer. Our friend Haley made the puffy wrap skirt by tying lengths of tulle to a long strand of ribbon and pinning the resulting tutu to the round table's existing tablecloth. I found the 40-yard bolt at a discount here.

Martha Stewart Blue Accordion Lanterns (product photo shown above) added a festive touch suspended above the island in our kitchen.

To celebrate Mary Ashley becoming a "tenager," we invited a large guest list of friends and family. Using china seemed impractical for the size of our party, but I still wanted a somewhat formal look. Silver Banded Dinner and Dessert Plates, Metallic Silver Plastic Forks, and Silver Glitter Border Placemats  from Shindigz delivered value, convenience and style. The napkins were from Target.

Tiffany Inspired Favor Boxes from Favorites by Glenda did double duty as decoration and parting gifts.

Stop in Friday for Tiffany-inspired food, fun and favors!
