If you are planning an Audrey Hepburn theme party, you must love her as much as we do! She is an absolute icon known for her fashion, kindness, and unstoppable attitude. This party will call for decorations, food, and favors that would have been approved by Audrey herself. Decorate as Audrey would, eat delicious food as she would, and treat your guests like movie stars with the perfect Audrey Hepburn-inspired party favors. Here are a few fun ideas to express the glitz and glam of classic Hollywood.
Audrey Hepburn Theme Party Decorations
The decor is the most important part of setting up a memorable party. Without this, the food and the party favors don’t have anything to work upon. We want to help you host a party that will shine as brightly as Audrey Hepburn did. Get ready to get creative with these decoration ideas.
1. Table confetti
Dress up your table with Audrey-inspired table confetti. Some options include diamond table confetti, Tiffany blue jelly beans, martini shakers, and recreations of Holly Golightly’s sleep mask. Some of these can double as party favors as well.
To incorporate Audrey Hepburn, hang Holly Golightly framed photos of her on the walls. Or, hang photos of the guest of honor dressed like Audrey doing an Audrey-inspired pose. You can also put photos on all of the tables or have a photobook somewhere. This idea is a great way to make the guest of honor feel special at her Audrey theme party.
3. Scene décor
Decorate according to a scene from your favorite Audrey Hepburn movie. For instance, for a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” scene, you might pile your food table high with breakfast pastries and make it the focus of the room by framing it with a faux window frame and hanging chandeliers above it.
Create a table centerpiece with large, sparkly white candelabras and black candles. Simply place a candle in each candelabrum and place the candelabras in the center of your table. Instead of flowers, fill clear vases with tiffany blue diamonds for a fun and elegant alternative. Decorate the vase with a piece of satin ribbon.
5. Table Décor
For a Hepburn-style table try a blue tablecloth covered with a black polka dot table runner. Use black tableware with blue napkins and sparkling napkin holders. Subtle details like this will tie everything together.
Audrey herself coined “Dahling” as the iconic phrase it is today, so why not use it as inspiration for your party decor? Get custom napkins and custom signs with the word printed on them, or use your favorite frosting to write it on delicious cupcakes! Get creative, Miss Hepburn would love to see her word all around your party!
Audrey Hepburn Theme Party Favors
With our help your party is going to stay in your guest’s memories forever, but why not seal the deal with some party favors. These favors will be a physical reminder of your party and the fun that was had.
7. Long Gloves
Some of her most famous pictures show Audrey Hepburn with long gloves. These can be any color or material, but white or black satin gloves will be the most authentic. Give each of your guests a pair so that they can dress up like Audrey.
Give each of your guests their very own white lace handkerchief. This is a lovely, vintage favor that goes perfectly with your Audrey Hepburn theme. If you want to go above and beyond you can monogram the handkerchief with the guest’s initials.
Your guests will love receiving a set of Tiffany blue stationery or even a Thank You note written on Tiffany’s stationery.
10. Jewelry Box Favor Boxes
To play with the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” theme, give out all of your favors in jewelry box-type favor boxes. You can fill them with small trinkets like fake diamond jewelry or Tiffany blue-colored candies.
Often, Audrey Hepburn movies were based on books. For instance, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” was based on the book of the same title by Truman Capote. The original versions of Audrey Hepburn movies would make unique favors.
Audrey Hepburn is shown often with a tiara in her hair. Your guests will love receiving one to wear themselves. These can either all be the same or unique to each guest.
Miss Hepburn was a big fan of lipstick. Gift your female guests red lipstick with custom labels that echo your party theme!
14. Tiffany’s Danish
Say goodbye to your guests in the most memorable way by giving each a danish like in the famous opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Get a custom tag to go with it and your guests will surely love it!
Audrey Hepburn Theme Party Menu
Food brings us all together. Eating tasty food with your friends and family creates a warm fun environment. Audrey was a firm believer in eating a little bit of everything. So why not try a bit of all our ideas. With these ideas to get you started everyone will go home happy.
15. Audrey Hepburn Meals
One option is to mimic what Audrey would eat on a normal day. She would eat a simple breakfast of jam on toast, a lunch consisting of a chicken dish with pasta, and a dinner made up of chicken noodle soup with veggies. There is a lot of room for creativity here. Depending on the time of day of your party you could choose just one meal or have bits of each represented.
While this can’t be called a true meal it is a must for an Audrey Hepburn theme party. She loved chocolate and had some most nights. Be sure to have many varieties available for your guests to enjoy.
If you want to have foods that aren’t explicitly linked to Audrey but still want to fit the theme you can have fancy Hollywood food. This would include lots of hors d’oeuvres throughout the party. For more substantial food have things like seafood or steak. Really this is something that you can take and make your own. Anything could be considered Hollywood food as long as it’s presented well.
18. Movie Reenactment
Don’t you hate it when you’re watching a movie and they show a bunch of food on-screen making you hungry? You could solve this for your party by making the food from your favorite Audrey Hepburn movie. This will create a sense of immersion for your guests as you eat alongside your favorite actress. Best of all you won’t have to suffer watching someone else eat on an empty stomach.
19. Tiffany’s Timbertini
Make your party memorable by serving your guests the iconic cocktail from the film. This blue drink is the epitome of chic, just like Audrey Hepburn! Serve in a martini glass for added glamour!
Treat your guests to a beautiful coconut cake filled with pineapple and decorated gorgeous blue cream cheese flowers! Top your cake with sparkly edible pearls and blue, black, and white colors.
We hope you enjoyed these Audrey Hepburn Theme Party Ideas so that you can throw the best party for your guests.
