Breakfast at Tiffany's Retirement Party

Party Recap

My client had worked in the same place since she was 17 years old, has seen a lot of change in her 37 years of federal service and was excited to move onto her next adventure. I couldn't wait to get started! A party with her closest girlfriends and a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme. How fun!
The invitation always sets the tone to any party, mixing elegant colors of black, white and silver and of course the pop of Tiffany-blue.
Since this party wasn't about two people in love, I knew I needed to represent the theme in a way that was elegant, fun and still capturing the whole purpose of why we were celebrating!
What I love so much about party styling, endless possibilities and creating a blank space into a beautiful party!
What Breakfast at Tiffany's theme would be complete without Audrey herself making an appearance. This canvas print of Audrey Hepburn made the perfect backdrop and with the gorgeous balloon garland, this was easily my favorite area of this party.
Once the drinks were poured, everyone lined up to grab a prop and strike a pose! All the ladies had so much fun with this, and really got into it. What a great way to capture everyone who attended and have fun doing it!
No need to supply a ton of props for a photo booth. Keep it simple, for this party simple black glasses and white pearls were all we needed. Place everything on silver trays to create an elegant look.
The food at this party was amazing! No one left hungry!
This party was a success; everyone had a good time, plenty of food and drink and the guest of honor could not have felt more loved and appreciated, than she did that day.


Party Highlights

  • What People Ate

    Delicious tarts, variety of sandwiches, flatbread pizza, spinach rolls, cream stuffed strawberries and homemade scones with an assortment of delici ously homemade jams.

  • What People Drank

    The drink bar offered citrus water and a signature drink, huckleberry-mint wine spritzer. They were both so delicious!

  • Desserts

    The dessert bar featured cranberry-orange and pink champagne cupcakes, "Tiffany's" inspired sugar cookies and coconut macaroons. To keep with the theme, I had Renee & Co. cookies and Tiffany gift boxes. Served on a silver tray, perfection!

  • Party Favors

    For your dessert bar, take home boxes are a great way to encourage guests to take a treat for the road! This way the treats become party favors and you are not left with dozens of cupcakes that taunt you for days (does this happen to anyone else? Just me?).

    Everything looks amazing! I love the silver balloons! Where did you get them or is it something you made yourself? Great job!

    Thank you! I ordered the whole balloon garland from One Stylish Party! Then I assembled how I wanted.
