Audrey Hepburn Tea Party

 I'm so far behind on posting this annual party that my mom holds.  She is an amazing woman.  Every year, my mother plans an elaborate tea party for all of the girls in the family.  Since she has five daughters, two daughters in law, and four granddaughters, it's quite the event.  This years' theme was Breakfast at Tiffany's.  It was so fun!  
All of us had to dress accordingly.  I actually had a shirt with Audrey Hepburn's face on it!  But, I didn't even win the prize...it was messed up.  Anywho, the party was awesome.

We had an etiquette lesson, there was Audrey Hepburn decorations everywhere, the tablescape was gorgeous, and we indulged in loads of food!  Oh, and of course, Tiffany Blue was everywhere!

My Mom worked on this party for hours.  We had fruit tarts, breakfast casseroles, chocolate-dipped strawberries, scones, mini cupcakes, russian tea (basically a hot juice because we had the little girls there and we don't drink tea.), and a bunch more food.  Thanks mom for making this an awesome party!

What a special mom you have Lila. Everything looks beautiful and I can't believe there are so many women in your family. That must be a lot of fun.

WOW, your mom is so creative and fun! I love that she does something that's just for the girls. On top of that, I adore tea parties and Audrey Hepburn! What a fantastic idea. I'm going to mention this in my next blog post.

Cheers,

Beee--oooo-teeee-fulll! Gorgeous! I too think Audrey Hepburn was a great style icon. I have done some rather fancy dinner parties and outdoor events, but have never used this beautiful color! The one thing I CAN do is her short hairdo! My hair is always short and naturally dark. And although I majored in acting/music in college, I never became famous for that. LOL!
