I hosted a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” themed party for my sister’s 50th birthday. There were 17 gals in attendance. The guests were asked to wear a black dress and pearls.
The Menu for the Bruch Buffett
Creamy Mushroom and Leek Crepes
Dijon Ham Crepes
Herb Wrapped Asparagus Crepes
Elegant Crab Custard
Caramelized onion and egg soufflé
Roasted Fingerling Potato
Strawberry Spinach Salad with a poppy seed dressing
Fresh Fruit Platter
The goodies on the Dessert Table included:
Blueberry Crème Bread
Carrot cupcakes w/cream cheese frosting
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods
Blue/White striped candy sticks
I made fun favors for the girls. I packaged a box of crackerjax; a sleep mask (purchased a the Dollar Spot at Target), a pack of candy cigarettes and a fake diamond rind. All true fans of the movie will know the connection of these items.
As a thank you, I purchased square boxes in tiffany blue, added Hershey kisses, tied with ribbon to replicate the Tiffany Box and attached a “Thank you” charm.
I purchased table setting frames in the wedding section of Party City, added ribbon to the edge and used these to label the food on the buffet table.
