On Sunday, I went to a real life Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Literally, ate breakfast inside of Tiffany & Co. I’m sure you have all watched the movie, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, with Audrey Hepburn, right? If not, go watch it! I have a canvas of her from one of the scenes where she’s in her iconic LBD, holding a coffee, and staring into Tiffany & Co. I never in a million years thought that actually eating Breakfast inside of Tiffany’s was something I would get to do one day, let alone that it was even a real thing! My aunt and uncle bid on this “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” prize at an auction, and they won! The decorator incorporated orange butterflies in memory of my cousin Christopher, which was my aunt and uncles son, and in our Tiffany’s Boxes that were on the table, they gave us butterfly necklaces. I loved it, and it’s now one of my favorite necklaces. (To quickly expand on the orange butterfly significance, our whole family has experienced signs of Christopher with orange butterflies. It’s like he sends us personal signs with them, and it’s like a reassurance that he’s always with us. It’s literally the best feeling whenever I see one fly by.)
I look at these pictures and still can’t believe I went to a real one! And it was crazy, we were literally treated like royalty the second we entered. Like Kate Middelton, royalty. Everyone was so nice, and it’s a morning I will always remember. A real Breakfast At Tiffany’s has been a dream of mine for the longest time!
Oh Haley, how beautiful! What a great way to honor Christopher’s memory, I just teared up reading this post. I love Tiffany’s and the butterfly is so pretty.Thanks for sharing the special day!
Thank you so much, Maria! I’m glad it spoke to you in some way :) Thank you for the kind words <3
Dear Haley, what a pleasure it was to meet you this past Sunday at Tiffany. Breakfast with your Aunt and all of her lovely guests – you included – was such a wonderful, wonderful experience for me as well! It was a morning that I will always treasure. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Warm and best regards, Michael (I love your site! Bravo to you on such marvelous work!)
Thank you so much, Michael! You all did such an amazing job at making it the day that it was for us. Thank you, again! Also, so glad you found my blog! Thank you for stopping by! :)
Ahhhh how amazing! This is the coolest thing ever, I would love to go an event like this one day. And dying over that butterfly necklace <3
Wow this sounds like such an amazing experience. I’m sorry to hear about your cousin but it sounds like this little breakfast really honored him in a classy and sentimental way yor family will be able to cherish for years!
That sounds like such a magical day! It’s probably every girl’s dream for that to happen!
That is beyond cool! I’m glad you were able to experience it on a bit of a deeper meaning too with the butterflies.
What an incredible opportunity and gift:) So amazing!
