Breakfast At Tiffanny's

My niece Alexa turned 4 last week, and she wanted a fancy party! She didn't a Fancy Nancy party, just a party with jewelry and dress up. So my sister planned a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme. She used the original colors, white, black, and Tiffany blue.
I helped out a bit with the invites, but everything else was all her. Oh yeah, my hubby cooked the food lol.

It all started with a little blue bag invitation!

The weather in Southern California was brutal, it was over 100 degrees that day, but somehow we all managed. Except for the dessert, the cake and cupcakes melted a little bit, but they still tasted yummy.

First off, the guest arrived in New York and took a picture inside a taxi with the Empire State building in the background.

Then as the guest walked in the "fanciness" ( is that even a real word?) began.

Glasses, bow ties, mustaches, and crowns were available

My brother was messing around and used some of the props.

We of course had to have a piñata which my sister made inspired by a photo on interest. The bottom piece is not party of the piñata, it's just a stand for it.

My sister made tutu's for all the little girls

Some of the older girls wanted some to, but they had to borrow them from the little ones.

The adults then headed to the mimosa bar. Oh yeah, I also made the Mimosa Menu Sign.

Here is the food Menu. Included in the menu was the Zuppa Toscana that everyone enjoys. You can find the recipe here.

It's been several parties now that we have not had a huge cake. We have noticed that more than half of it goes to waste. So lately, we have had my niece make us a small cake and cupcakes. Such a great idea, and I don't feel bad about throwing out food.

Due to the heat, this adorable cake started to crack, but non the less it turned out cute and yummy.

Everything turned out cute! Happy Birthday Alexa! xoxo
