Breakfast at Tiffany’s Bridal Shower

Breakfast at Tiffany's Bridal Shower

Jenna from Eat Drink Pretty recently sent over this absolutely lovely “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” inspired bridal shower that she threw for her bride-to-be sister Katie.

It’s easy to see that a lot of love went into this sweet celebration…  makes me wish I had a sister! Lots of creativity went into it as well… from a fabulous white carnation ball centerpiece (which Jenna gives full DIY details for below) – to a fun champagne infusion table and frosted pink donut tower!

Breakfast at Tiffany's Bridal Shower

I hosted a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” themed bridal shower brunch for my sister Katie that was inspired by the a gorgeous Tiffany-themed wedding designed by Martha Stewart.  The color scheme was Tiffany blue (of course!) and soft pinks, and the look I was going for was feminine, classic elegance with a touch of whimsy (brought about by the donut tower and bride bunting).

The shower was held outdoors in my backyard under a white tent…

A crystal chandelier was suspended from the tent and hung above the table.

I found Tiffany blue fabric at a fabric store and used it as a tablecloth. For the table centerpiece: a DIY carnation ball on top of a cake platter surrounded by individual pink peonies in bud vases. Making the carnation ball was actually very easy! (See full instructions at the bottom of this post).

I had 25 carnations left from my bulk order so I made a all-white carnation bouquet for my sister tied with a Tiffany-blue ribbon.  It also served as décor on the drink table.

All of the paper products were DIY and created using a free downloaded invite template designed by Erin Vale of Vale Design. {Wedding, design and party blogs are great resources for free downloadable/printable stationery!}

We had a champagne infusion table that was a lot of fun. I used clear wine bottles for the infusions, which included orange juice for mimosas and peach juice for bellinis.  We also had raspberries and fresh peaches to garnish the drinks.

For a non-alcoholic choice we had sparkling pink lemonade and lemon water.  Each bottle was adorned with a label.  I used a leftover piece of Tiffany blue fabric as a runner on the drink table.

The mini-dessert table was also a favorite. We had a donut tower that was unique and very cute.  It was also very budget-friendly!

I used plain cake donuts from a nearby bakery and topped with pink frosting and sprinkles. The donut tower was displayed on a square cake platter and had 5 layers; 9 on the bottom, then 6, 4, 2, and 1.  Between each layer was a piece of wax paper to prevent sticking.

The dessert table also featured vanilla cupcakes that resembled the Tiffany gift boxes. These were actually made by Target bakery.

The party favors were blue favor boxes filled with chocolate and salted-caramel macarons.

My sister had a special favor box that included a Tiffany blue Chrysanthemum Ring from Etsy shop Oh, Hello Friend (pictured at top).  She wore the ring during the shower and it will also be her “something blue” on her wedding day!

The menu was brunch buffet style and included:
• Tomato, basil, mozzarella quiche
• Bacon and sausage
• Gluten-free petit fours
• Fruit salad

My sister loves bunting so I included the adorable “Bride” bunting banner that I made using this printable alphabet bunting from Ruffled Blog. (pictured at top)

The shower was a big hit! Everyone had a great time and – most importantly – Katie had a huge beautiful smile the entire time.  She was so happy with everything and is such a lovely bride-to-be. I’m so honored to have been able to throw her a wonderful shower.

CARNATION BALL INSTRUCTIONS

Breakfast at Tiffany's Bridal Shower

Materials:  4-½” floral foam sphere + about 50 carnations

Instructions:
1. Soak/saturate the floral foam sphere in water
2. Cut the carnations to about an inch below the stem
3. Spread the petals of each carnation so it is at its fullest
4.  Insert each carnation into the floral foam sphere, beginning in a straight line and then filling in until there are no gaps (you can leave the bottom open since it will be placed on top of a platter)

Thanks again to Jenna for all the creative inspiration!
