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, favors, food, activities, party supplies, and invitations that would have been approved by Audrey herself. Prepare for a party and treat your guests like movie stars as Audrey would, to host the perfect Audrey Hepburn-inspired event. 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. Movie Premiere
Everyone knows all the big-name celebrities are located in Hollywood. Decorate the venue with movie and TV symbols to reflect the red carpet and a night in Hollywood.
To incorporate Audrey Hepburn, display Holly Golightly wall art, 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 photo book displayed 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 votive 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. Further down are some party supplies for the table that will add subtle details, which will tie everything together.
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 shared.
7. Tiffany Box or Bag
To play with the Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme, give out all of your favors in the iconic Tiffany blue box or bag. You can fill them with small trinkets like fake diamond jewelry or Tiffany blue-colored candies. For added flair, get them personalized for the event and add “<insert name> & Co.”
8. Long Gloves
Some of her most famous pictures show Audrey Hepburn with long gloves. These can be any color or material, but long 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.
10. Sleep Mask
After all that partying, it’s time to get a goodnights rest with this recreation of Holly Golightly’s sleep mask.
11. Stationery Set
Your guests will love receiving a set of Tiffany blue stationery or even a Thank You note written on Tiffany’s stationery.
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 with red lipstick with custom labels that echo your party theme or their personality!
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. Add a custom tag to go with it and your guests will surely love it!
Often, Audrey Hepburn’s 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 Theme Party Food Ideas
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.
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.
17. 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.
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. If you decide to do cupcakes, don’t forget to add cake toppers!
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! To make them more personalized, add names to make it “your drink.”
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.
