Glam Beach Party: Old Hollywood + Tiffany Blue

Quick Jump To » Comments

tiffany old hollywood beach glam party

We’ve featured Tiffany-themed parties before (here and here for example) but this is the first one that’s taken place at the beach… how FUN! Shawna of Shawna Brockmeier Styled Events took her daughter’s simple “beach party” birthday request and made it the most dazzling beach party ever. Inspired by the classic styles of Old Hollywood, this Glam Beach Birthday Party not only lives up to its name (lots of sparkle & Tiffany blue), but also remains sweet and age-appropriate (candy necklaces, beach balls & hula hoops)!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– A homemade black & white beach tent for some giggly girly time in the shade
– Adorable Tiffany inspired party invitations packaged with sea shells and “diamonds”
– Wooden sail boats for each guest with monogram-embroidered sails
– Tray service of “treats” including candy jewelry in Tiffany & Co. necklace pouches

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Shawna

My daughter really wanted a beach party this year for her birthday and she loves all things glamorous- so we decided to do a glam beach party!


The invitations were placed in bags with glittery blue dresses and filled with seashells and ‘diamonds’ to invite my daughter’s friends to her glamorous beach party.


I went with an old Hollywood feel using black and white stripes and Tiffany blue to add bling to the party! I designed an ‘A’ framed tent that my fabulous husband built. The tent added shade for the girls to get away and relax in. It also served as a changing area to get dressed up in glamorous tutus and matching shirts that read A & Co. (for Amanda: my daughter’s name and company: her fabulous gal pals). The girls also received pearls, over sized sunglasses, flip-flops and rhinestone tiaras. I made the birthday girl a special fabric crown too! I contacted Andea at Dolce Drive and she designed the most adorable printables to pull my vision together …she even created a black and white tent that matched perfectly to the one I designed!

I am a huge Pottery Barn fan and always look at their designs for inspiration. I found fabulous striped towels at Pottery Barn Teen that matched my color scheme perfectly. Those towels and little, coordinating umbrellas provided a glamorous sunbathing area for the girls!


I brought tables and chairs to set up a glamorous table setting. The girls were served on silver platters with real cloth napkins. My son provided tray service to the girls with a tray filled with candy jewelry and yummy treats! The girls also enjoyed cupcakes, cake and chocolate ice cream served in fancy cups.


It turned out to be a gorgeous day at the beach – the sun was shining and the water was warm and crystal clear! The girls enjoyed swimming, playing with beach balls and Tiffany blue hula hoops. I made custom sails for small sail boats that they sailed in the tide pools. I also set up a glamorous sand castle area with an Eifel tower and barbies in matching party attire. We had a beautiful day filled with fun for my glamorous, sweet girl and her friends!

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I love the Cabana meets old Hollywood theme! I plan on copying it for my daughter’s upcoming beach party. I do have a couple of questions about where you purchased things.

    Sailboats- I know you said Michael’s. Can you give me more details on what brand? What area of the store?

    Your son’s Fedora/Trilby Hat- Where did you find it? I am assuming you made the ribbon band yourself?

    Black/White Stripe Beach Chairs- Pottery Barn Kids maybe? This season?

    White parasols/umbrellas?


    • Shawna says:

      Thank you everyone for the very kind comments!! (:

      Julie, the Sail boats are kits in the wood work section–they are only $1.00!!
      My son’s hat is from The Children’s Place–I just replaced the ribbon.
      I recovered the beach chairs with extra fabric from the tent…
      The umbrellas are just paper parasols that I embellished with coordinating fabric…
      I hope this helps! (:

    Such a stunning party. I was wondering if you could tell me where you bought the tiffany blue gumball machines from? They are absolutely adorable and I cannot find them online anywhere.
    Thank you so much in advance.


    • Shawna says:

      Hi Jeannie,
      My Mom found them at Big Lots for a $1.00…..not sure if they still have them but I have also seen them at the dollar Tree in different colors. I hope you find them–good luck!
