Tiffany themed Bridal Shower Celebrates a Bride and her Besties with a Classic Style of that Little Blue Box!

Oh darling!! Don't you just love the classic charm of the little blue Tiffany's box! If it worked for Audrey Hepburn it works for us!! Tiffany Shannon was the bride-to-be, and her mother Karen wanted to go all out. What better way to shower Tiffany than a Breakfast at Tiffany's themed bridal shower? And Karen - and the oh so talented team at Fairy Godmother Events - certainly pulls out on the stops for this swanky soiree. The guests were all given long, black gloves and a tiara to channel Miss Hepburn [a la Holly Golightly] throughout the party. Even the cookies and cake were Tiffany & Co-inspired. Those iconic [and sought after!] little blue boxes were placed as decor throughout, and just seeing those makes our heart race and our eyes sparkle with a little Tiffany blue.  This charming bridal shower reminds of us of Holly's motto:  "I am a very stylish girl."

“Hand me my purse, will you, darling? A girl can’t read that sort of thing… with… without her lipstick.” Holly Golightly

These beautiful, uniquely decorated individual wedding cakes have us wanting more!

Pardon us while we rave a little here, but these are the cutest things ever! Individually decorated miniature wedding cakes!!! And to paraphrase William Shakespeare "though they be small, they be mighty" [in design]! Thank you Little Hunnys Cakery for these perfect works of art for stylish San Diego area weddings because we are lucky enough to have this talented bakery practically in our backyard!

Just look at how charming that cake is!!

Saving room for wedding cake? How about saving the cake!

Sometimes bad things happen to good weddings! Like a cake-decimating accident right before the reception. (little warning: this image may be upsetting to cake bakers, chefs and experienced wedding pros!)

Fortunately this couple had hired a truly amazing dream team of Amy Ulkutekin of First Comes Love and Sharon Mintz Organic Elements florals and the wedding was being held at one of our favorites the La Valencia Hotel [who has a pastry chef with some serious skills]. And voila! Here is the fixed up cake ready to be celebrated and enjoyed with no one the wiser. Whew! 

What couples do not know about wedding planning is a lot.....Like we always say: hire the best then let them do what they do best!
