Tiffany’s Blue ‘Bride Wars’ Reception
Posted in Cakes, Food and Drinks on 7 January 2009

How better to get ideas on your Tiffany themed wedding than from the company itself? Following a screening of the movie Bride Wars at the AMC Lincoln Square, over 200 guests headed to Tiffany & Company’s Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York for a reception full of all things ‘blue.’

These are so cute, I would never want to eat them! These tiny cakes or cupcakes in Tiffany’s blue were served on silver platters.

Blue drinks were served to guests. But if you’re wondering how they made it, you’ll have to keep wondering. Tiffany’s isn’t telling.

I know there been a lot of hype about the new movie, and I know I’ve been part of it. Sorry! I’ll be watching it this Saturday with a bunch of girls and I hope I won’t be disappointed!
