All Audrey, All the Time

Search for Audrey Hepburn

If you haven't ever heard of Audrey Hepurn, now is the time to learn!  My grandmother and I just ADORE her! One of our traditions is to watch one of her movies every now and then. I think I have seen all of her movies except one she made when she was older. A good starter movie to watch if you haven't ever seen anything with her in it is, "Wait Until Dark." Beware, it's scary! But it is very, very good! My first was the original, "Charade," which is also great. This is my list of Audrey favorites:
1. Wait Until Dark
2. Charade
3. Sabrina
4. How to Steal a Million
5. My Fair Lady
6. Breakfast at Tiffany's

 So, I hope this explains why I made an Audrey Hepurn tablescape today. The plates, cups, and spoons are from an espresso set my grandmother and mother bought me at Tuesday Morning. They are pink, black, gray, and white. I think Audrey would have liked them. The plates under that are some white accent plates that belong to my grandmother. The pink candles in mini-wine glasses came from CVS. They are the cutest things, and they were the perfect size for the china! The napkins are white. For the napkin holders, I had a creative idea. I found some faux flowers and hot-glued them to new, unused black hair-bands. (P.S- From experience, attaching the flower to the rubber band with a hot glue gun might not work the first time. :) ) It makes just as nice a napkin ring as anything and looks great on the table. You can use other things besides flowers. 

 Also, I used four black placemats. The focal point is a black wire stand from T.J. Maxx. For inexpensive decorations I found pink things I could layer, curled paper ribbon and even a bath scrunchie.  Then we put electric candles from CVS and covered up the bottoms of them as much as we could. My grandmother reminded me she had all of the DVD cases, and I thought to make a DVD tower on the stand. I added a few things to build it up, like more faux flowers. They are just layered on, not even glued. Over all, I love the table! I hope that you and Audrey would, too!

Thank you for visiting my post! I hope you will see some Audrey films soon!

  1. I absolutely love this! Being an Audrey fan, also, I know that she would have been quite pleased to see your table. You captured her grace and beauty, Emma Cate!

  2. Beautiful and fun! Great job. Now here's a tip you will thank me for forever. Toss out that glue gun and go to Hobby Lobby where they sell the most fabulous, do-it-all glue. It's called THE ULTIMATE! by API's Crafters Pick. It says, "The only non-toxic, water-based super glue. Adheres to metals, plastics, glass & more! Dries clear." I use this stuff for EVERYTHING including fabrics and could not get anything done around my house without it. You're welcome! :-)

  3. Makes me want to have another Audrey Film Festival with you!!! You know that I always want to start with "Charade". You did a fabulous job with the table!

  4. Audrey had class and you don't see that much any more!!! Beautiful mug and great photos!!!

  5. Your tablescape is really cool. Your mug made a great subject for you bokeh shots! Thanks for linking to the party.

  6. So proud of my daughter. She is still in middle school, and she did the table and the photography. I think I might have created a monster! :) Thanks for encouraging her!
