A Breakfast at Tiffany's Bridal Shower

I have been waiting forever to post these photos and I just can't wait to finally show you! I worked a long time on this bridal shower to make it perfect, because how often do you get to throw a bridal shower for your soon-to-be sister-in-law? Hopefully only once. ;-)

I cleared out my living room of all my furniture (we put it in the garage) and made one long table so that everyone could eat together! I was going to do two tables, but I'm so glad this worked out! Rebecca sat at the head of the table so she could see everyone!
Here were the invitations I sent out from Lovingly Mine. I also ordered a few extra and used them as centerpiece decorations on the table.
I called it Breakfast at Tiffany's, but I really served brunch (at 11am), so I made these parfaits with honey greek yogurt and fresh fruit and served them in wine glasses! I made three parfaits for the kids. I let guests put their own granola on top if they wanted. Next to that I had champagne for the guests who drank.
 I made an Asiago Caesar Salad!
My mom made her breakfast quiche (not pictured, for some reason) and I made different types of sandwiches (prosciutto, smoked Gouda, salami, veggies) and tied them with tiffany blue twine!

 And Hawaiian Fruit Punch Lemonade:
 I served Rebecca, the bride-to-be, her parfait in a special glass tied with matching tiffany blue twine and ribbon!
 And the punch lemonade filled these adorable mason jars:
 I tied balloons to the cake and dessert table. Can you see them in the background?
 I found the cutest Tiffany blue plates (they were plastic! can you believe it?) and tiffany blue diamonds for decorations for the table:
 The cake was made by the Oh-So-Talented Legacy Bakeshop. I purposely chose this cake, rather than a tiffany box-style cake, because Rebecca picked out a similar cake from Legacy Bakeshop for their wedding and I knew the rosette cake was her favorite!
 I made the cupcakes!
 And covered them with edible pearls:
 For centerpieces, I made these tissue paper pom poms and put them in glass vases (this is also a good photo of the bride's plate and the invitation sitting on the table as part of the centerpiece):
Other centerpieces included a cake plate with stacked tiffany boxes and stacked tiffany boxes on candle stick holders:
 The tiffany plates were plastic, but I used real glassware and silverware. Rebecca's white plate was from my Kate Spade wedding china (that Mr. Howard and I got seven years ago when we were married):
We also had balloons (without string) all over the ceiling above us
We only did two games, but I was really happy with the way that they turned out (both downloaded from etsy)! And then we did an Advice for the Bride card too. 
I'll do a Part 2 where I'll tell you where I got everything (with links)- for those of you who are interested in recreating this!

We all had so much fun,, and the decorations were actually, (if that's possible) better looking than the pictures would indicate. The food was yummy and all in all a spectacular affair. Great job. You can decorate my parties anytime. :)
