I heart... Breakfast at Tiffany's

Spending my weekend with Audrey... a marathon of sorts... I could watch this movie over and over and never cease to be inspired... the color... the playful details... the perfect mix of sophistication and whimsy...I've had brides use it for inspiration before-but it almost always ends up being Tiffany Blue and White with minor inspiration from the poster-shot and every once in a while a cigarette holder favor... is that really all they get from the flick... am I the only one that sees the potential?? Imagine...

Bride's dress inspired by the "towel" that Audrey wears at the beginning of the party scene...
Bridesmaids in the absolutely fabulous "fiesta" hot pink number Audrey adorns in the hall...
They dance to Moonriver....
The decor is playfully ecclectic and inspired by nickle-and-dime finds
Cracker jacks are served on platters and champagne in vintage tea cups
Traditional statues are adorned with playful masks of flowers
Mismatched seating arrangements, perhaps a clawfoot bathtub-turned sofa or two
Graphic square lanterns with tassels overhead

Alright... enough already! I could go on and on... what movies inspire you?

Ummm...this whole "i heart" thing? Yeah, someone's already doing it. It's not flattering to copy!

Ms. Pendington

First and foremost- thank you for stopping in... and taking the time to read the blog... and to comment.

The first time that I ever saw I heart... was actually in the mindless movie of "Dude, where's my car..." and then later in magazines and also in a wide aray of blogs on the internet... and truthfully I have never really claimed to be the one that coined the phrase....

I built this blog for ME and my BRIDES and anyone that chooses to read it... and lately that includes many wonderful people... many of which are from the blog scene.... and that IS flattering...

This being said... if you are to look past my somewhat trite and clique headings to read the substance and content of what I write then perhaps you will find that there is depth and innovative thought and a little piggy-backing on ideas here and there...

Thank you so much again for stopping by and I really do hope to see you here again... perhaps in better spirits next time...

I love this board and agree, that so many do the Breakfast at Tiffany's theme and do not take it beyond tiffany blue and maybe some pearls. This board shows how there are so many ways to do this theme. I too love this movie. Continue to inspire :)
