Hi Friends! It’s been a bit hectic around here and I am just getting around to sharing this fabulous Audrey Hepburn film inspired party for Bird’s Party Magazine Spring 2013 issue.This is part one of serveral because we had so many fabulous vendors, they can’t possibly fit into one post. Ever since the first time I saw the glamorous and sophisticated Audrey Hepburn on the big screen in the film Sabrina, I have loved her work. My admiration only grew once I saw the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Later to find out that in life Audrey Hepburn was also a devoted humanitarian showing she was a strong beautiful woman inside as well as out, well that made her amazing! I knew for this party I wanted to showcase her classic beauty and simple understated elegance.
I chose to do dramatic black and white with pops of a gorgeous robin’s egg blue. My inspiration piece was a huge Audrey Hepburn print on canvas that hangs over my desk which I purchased at Ikea. I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s as well as Sabrina’s for at least a dozen times because I wanted to pick up significant details to play up at this party. i was fortunate enough to get to work with the highly sought-after and uber talented Loralee Lewis! Not only did she also love Audrey Hepburn as much as I do, but she was also super excited to design custom invitation just for me!
For the invitations we chose a bold black fancy scallop invitation with white lettering and a colorful striped back side of the invitation to tie in our accent color. Loralee Lewis Designs, creates the invites and also prints them in house using the most gorgeous and luxurious paper you can imagine! She did the entire invitation suite as well as all of our signage and labels to bring everything together beautifully. I always take a lot of time in choosing and designing my party invitations and coordinating papers because I think they are so important and really set the tone for the entire event!
To capture this fabulous party we had the talents of Fiorella Image Studio to photograph and document every detail of this glamorous party. We even had a fun photobooth for everyone to enjoy ( we will get into that in one of our next posts).
