I was planning on totally splurging on my Breakfast at Tiffany's birthday brunch this year but now with the renovations and opening of the store~I am counting every penny. LITERALLY! Today's hunt ~ I was looking for some china saucers and candlesticks so I could make cupcake holders which is all the rage now. Similar to a cake plate just smaller to hold one cupcake. The colors I was looking for was Tiffany Blue and fuchsia which are my colors for my birthday small brunch. I really thought I would find a mix of patterns with the colors~to my surprise I found all matching saucers and plates as well. They actually had a set of 12 but I only needed 6~I hated to break up the family.
To make it even better ~there was a 50 percent off special for week 28 today. All my stuff was week 28! I'm such the lucky girl! So I got the saucers for 49 cents each and the plates for 99 cents each. You can not even rent a dish for that price definitely not china!
EEEEEKKKKK ~I could not have found a better match!! I was planning on spray painting the bases that I found, 3 fuchsia and 3 Tiffany Blue but I really like the crystal with these saucers, don't you? So 3 down 3 more to go~ I will hit another Goody's tomorrow and I'm sure to find 3 more "crystal like" candlesticks that will work. I love how they turned out.
The below Tiffany mini cake is how mine will look. I have a fabulous pastry chef so I have no doubt she will completely pull this off. My mini cakes are going to be Red Velvet~my personal favorite. This mini cake was done by The Cake Girls~Chicago. Then I found these absolutely GORGEOUS Tiffany cupcakes. Aren't they just darling??? OH my, actually all of Cakes by Lorinda are beautiful!
