Two dear friends were having a birthday in the same week. We wanted to celebrate, on a Friday night, but we also wanted to relax, so we decided to have a pajama party.
Pajamas and Pearls to be precise.
Our hostess set a lovely table with vintage linens and simply elegant garden bouquets of camellias and Daphne
with a focus on understated elegance and Tiffany blue.
A fun little twist to the table was a pack of bubblegum cigarettes at each place setting, so we could channel Holly Go~lightly, and “puff” away without a care, as we ate breakfast for dinner.
Each of the birthday girls were crowned with true~blue tiaras.
Appropriately colored Glassybabies and boxes from a local bakery, filled with intense chocolate cupcakes for dessert, rounded out the decorations.
After dinner, we cozied up on the sofa to watch our favorite Huckleberry Friend.
This can be a relatively easy and extremely comfortable party to throw. To make it even more fun, stock up on tasseled earplugs, bubblegum ciggy’s, silky eye masks, and Audrey Style sunglasses, so everyone can be a little more Audrey for the evening.
I have a selection of party favors for your perusal below.

Now, here are the goodies!
Oval bi-focal sunglasses, I have this pair and absolutely adore them because they are bifocals, so I can read the menu while lunching alfresco, darling.
Oliver Goldsmith tortoiseshell glasses, These are the real thing, “not a phony, because they are the real phony.” Oliver Goldsmith recently reissued these “Manhattans”, Audrey wore this style with dark tortoise frames and green lenses. “One of a kind sunglasses that speak not through obnoxious logos, but by the beauty, individuality and personality in their designs”.
Tortoiseshell sunglasses , Wayfarer style, but at a price that will allow you to buy a pair for each member of your breakfast club.
Tranquility Therapeutic Silk Sleep Mask, Hypoallergenic Reinforcements! This beautiful champagne silk charmeuse eye mask will keep you luxuriously relaxed all through the night.
Navy Silk Eyemask, I have this one and it is so soft and silky! It truly does offer “velvety darkness for a good rest, anytime, anywhere” and for under $8, they will save you a lot of trips to the powder room!

Baby blue long tassel ear plugs Breakfast at Tiffanys style, For even more glamor, go for the longer tassels in Tiffany blue or Fuchsia.

Cracker Jack would also be the ideal movie snack, served in champagne coupes, naturally.

You could even stash fun little rings in the coupes as “prizes”.
