The next layer of height were faux cigarette holders, just like the one Holly used in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Instead of real cigarettes, I found bubblegum wrapped cigarettes. These made for a lot of laughs and Kodak moments.
A sweet smoke never hurt anyone!
I then added the next layer in height: fresh hydrangeas from my garden in a reflective, antique mirror-like, mercury glass vase. Beneath it was a round mirror charger which I also bought at Michael's Craft Store.
At the foot of the vase, I placed a Tiffany jewelry bag filled with faux diamonds and pearls spilling out onto the mirror base.
Both a whimsical and elegant touch
I couldn't leave out a silver tea and coffee set with coordinating blue sugar swirling sticks. the silver with the blue was simply scrumptious.
|Splashes of color are the touches that dictate the mood of the party!|
|It's those simple touches that steal the show.|
Taste - food & beverages
Sight - visual appeal
Sound - choreographed music
Smell - fragrance and flowers
Touch - layers of texture
