Old-Young Hollywood Party - Halloween 2011

So we finally made the decision to be these two lovas...
 Holly  Golightly and Paul 'Fred' Varjack -Breakfast At Tiffany's

My normally goofball husband had to wear a serious costume and play a serious role this year. I thanked him for playing along so well. He found the perfect Paul Varjack tweed blazer at Goodwill the morning of the party. He likes it so much he wore it the next day as well;) I had so much fun dressing up as my all time favorite Old Hollywood leading lady (Audrey). And just for the record, the cigs are for costume;)
Out of respect for our lovely guests, I won't post their photos here, except for Katie,
A dear friend who came to visit for the weekend....
They are newlyweds who dressed up as Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn - Project Runway. (He looked just like him with powdered white hair and all!) Although the Married sign wouldn't really apply to Tim and Hiedi;)
Being a procrastinator, I finally made the infamous Breakfast at Tiffany's mask and earplugs the morning of the party. Luckily, Hobby Lobby + my craft room had everything I needed to make it!

Photo props that were illustrated by my friend Lauren Stiebler for Oh Happy Day blog.
Tissue Poms made using this tutorial.
Smores on a stick, muddy buddy chex mix, and cream puffs were dessert appetizers of choice. Recognize the glammed up pumpkin? ;)
You might also recognize the glitter candles in this table setting:)

Again, most of my party decor found at Hobby Lobby. The local thrift store had the tall clear canister, lantern, and mason jars!

We had all kinds of celebrities come to the party;)
It was such a fun time with friends, which is why its fun to throw a party once in a while. It brings everyone together! Happy Halloween!!


P.S. Its the last day to enter this fabulous giveaway!

  27. Clever costume idea. The LBD would've been an obvious choice so I love the bedroom outfit. Your husband definitely has a bit of the George Peppard to him!

  55. Awww, how fun! I just knew you would be Audrey Hepburn (or rather I hoped because I love her)! I have been dying to go as her forever--I really like your spin on her Holly rather than going in the usual black shift-tiara-donut get-up. :)

  59. freakin' awesome!!!!!!!! you two are combo'd in the coolest way! i've never seen Holly Golightly pulled off this way before, brilliant strategy Anna. now that's a look i think Sean could come on board with, he's not much for crazy costumes so this fits the bill perfectly. bonus is it all looks extra comfy too! the whole shindig sounded marvelous. girl, i've missed SO much, why can't there be more hours in a day? i need timeeeeeeeeeeeee ova heah universe, time to play and see the see's! xoox ♥
