Breakfast At Tiffany's Baby Shower

I absolutely LOVE old movies! Many people say that I am a very elegant person, so it shouldn't be hard to believe that I absolutely adore Audrey Hepburn! What a beautiful actress she was! I love her style, her sophistication, her poise! Of course Breakfast at Tiffany's is probably her most iconic movie- gotta love her little black dress! So when I was asked to come up with a theme for a baby shower, I thought that a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme would be fun.

This theme would also be FABULOUS for a birthday party (Hmmmm- did my husband catch that hint?)
Tell your guest to wear a little black dress. The mommy-to-be will LOVE this because black makes you look thinner and she will take all the help she can get at this point!!! Provide each guest with any of the following :a pearl necklace, black satin gloves, black feather boa, and black sunglasses! This is a great photo op! Provide goodie boxes for the guests using a Tiffany blue gift box- many places online sell them! Put some items from the movie in them: Craker jacks, a sleeping mask, a faux diamond, etc.

(I decorated the gift table with a Louis Vuitton shoe box on a pedestal. It really got me thinking of doing a fashion tablescape.)
I think it would be fun if you served Brunch- it would go perfectly with the theme.

A very frugal way to make napkin rings is to cut a paper towel roll into the desired size of your napkin ring. Hot glue one end of ribbon to the inside of the paper towel roll. Continue to roll the ribbon around the paper towel roll until it is completely covered. Glue the end of the ribbon to the inside of the paper towel roll.
For this theme we then glued a clear rhinestone to the front (to resemble a diamond).

Need help with your baby shower?
At Mommy Mogul we have created a Tablescape kit to help you with the table decorations! It comes complete with the entire tablescape (the posters are not included, but can be purchased inexpensively at Allposters.com).
We even include one free baby shower game that is so fun and it is for GREAT photos .
You can find this kit at www.mommymogul.etsy.com

Have a FABULOUS party darlings!!!

Costumes aren't just for Halloween

The latest trend going around right now is themed birthday parties for children. I love to look on the internet and see all across the country the very creative and talented people that make kids birthday parties so special. About a year ago, I decided to add themed parties to the things that my business (Mommy Mogul) was doing.
I have been doing themed parties for about 12 years. I had always loved coming up with all of the decorations, tablescape, etc. It never dawned on me at the time that this was actually being done all over the country as a business! What? You can actually do something you love to do and get paid for it!!!! What a marvelous idea! That is when I decided to add it to our products and services. I have had a blast coming up with themes and taking pictures and all that comes with birthday parties. I love the costumes! Way back when, you only saw costumes at Halloween. But not anymore! Costumes add so much to an event. It truly makes the party more special. It just adds so much more than the decorations do. It is like you are helping the kids imagination when they can dress the part.

How cute is it to have a spa party and every little girl is wearing a bath robe? Or you give your little boy a race car party and have him in a race car driver costume! It's great for the pictures and the party! I think it truly makes the party magical! Next time you have your child's birthday party- whether you do it yourself or hire someone else to do it- consider adding costumes to the festivities. You will be surprised how much a simple little costume can add so much sparkle to your child's event. You won't be sorry that you did! Until next time, make the most of what you have!!!
