Love the little boxes!
An obvious choice for a centerpiece!
Isn't this clever to make the whole table into that little blue box?
I liked all of these but I wanted to try something I hadn't seen before for my BAT. I set a table for 6 in my Dining Room for a birthday brunch. Imagine "Moon River" playing to get you in the mood. Did you know that Audrey Hepburn herself sang that in the movie?
I found these chargers at Target on-line after Christmas. Believe it or not, they came in a set of 12 for $8! They are similar to the chargers I used HERE in silver.
I used my square white dinner plates (Old Time Pottery), a black and white floral plate, also from Target, and a black bowl. I would have liked some pretty glass fruit dishes but I don't have a set of six (yet!). It would have been a nice touch to have something on the table that came from Tiffany's but unfortunately I haven't been that lucky!
I layered black and white napkins with a "Diamond Ring" napkin ring (Ross). Do you remember in the film when Holly says you shouldn't wear diamonds until you're forty?
My husband gave me these flowers for Valentine's Day and since I already had my centerpiece planned out I divided them into 2 vases to place on either side. I added the "pearl" branches to match my theme. The movie is so full of great jewelry and fashion.
My centerpiece started with a "little black dress" jewelry holder that I plan on giving to my daughter after the party. The sunglasses stay with me (they're prescription!).
I hung some Christmas ornaments and faux jewels from the hooks. It stands on a glass cake stand with some ornate candle holders around the bottom.
I used 3 glass coasters in between the candleholders that depict ads from the movie. They were from Ross and very inexpensive. There are lots of things you can buy that have to do with the movie. You could easily decorate a whole room with what's available.
A pair of big, black sunglasses tops it off.
After Christmas I picked up a few sets of these aqua felt hearts and decided to hang them from the chandelier to give the room more of a party atmosphere. With my daughter's birthday falling in the same week as Valentine's Day it only seemed right to add some hearts!
My china cabinet had to get in on the color scheme too so I changed it out to black and white.
In the movie, Holly's breakfast food, eaten in front of Tiffany's window, consists of a danish and coffee. I am going in a slightly different direction! Audrey Hepburn wouldn't have stayed as thin if she ate this meal every morning.
The menu will consist of a baked french toast casserole, cut up fruit, breakfast sausage and mimosas. I have tried several french toast casseroles before but this one is the winner.

In birthday's past I have made cakes that look like Minnie Mouse, a basketball, conversation hearts, a competition swimming pool and a sunflower. I toyed with the idea of a cake that looks like the Tiffany's box but I think I will stick with cupcakes this year since I found some cute aqua wrappers.
A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future.-- Author Unknown
