Chanel No 70

About this time last year I was very busy planning my mom’s 70th birthday party. She loves all things Chanel, so I had a very fun theme to start with. To make it easy because of her job (she works at Neiman Marcus) I thought a Sunday brunch would work best for her friends and co workers.
So a “little black dress” brunch it became.

This was the invitation. I used white and black cardstock and wrapped a black grosgrain ribbon around and added a pearl as the final touch.
All the guests wore black party dresses.

I had Jenny Layne Bakery make the cupcakes and they turned out fantastic{they were tasty too}
I also had her make “little black dress” sugar cookies for a take home treat

This was the party favor and inside a little black makeup compact for your handbag.

I wrapped the utensils with a candle and tied a black ribbon with the final touch of a small pearl, that said “make a wish”. This way everyone had their own candle for wishes.

For the table scape I made signs with Coco Chanel quotes, some large pearls {bubble gum}shopping bags and a black dress form.


I served “blush rose” champagne punch and iced tea in champagne goblets.


The hostess assistants, my daughter and her two BFF’s.


My best friends catered the lunch serving; 5 varieties of quiche, croissants and chicken salad, lemon & vanilla bean scones, fresh fruit and for dessert the yummy cupcakes and sugar cookies.

Me, my daughter, and the guest of honor, my pretty momma.
Happy birthday Mom!!
