Miss Piggy in Paris (25 photos)
Since there is a Muppets revival recently with the release of the new movie at the end of the month, I was inspired to throw a Miss Piggy party, which seemed fitting to celebrate my grandmother's birthday, as both ladies are extremely posh, chic and glamorous! We also have a special place in our heart for pigs, as several members of our family were born in the year of the pig according the Chinese calendar, which is a part of our heritage. In the upcoming film, Ms. Piggy is working as an editor for French Vogue and I wanted to incorporate fashion, glam and Paris in the details. I've seen a lot of parties centered around the classic Barbie silhouette and I thought it would be fun to utilize the same concept. I asked Michele at Intrigue Design Studio to design a silhouette of Miss Piggy, which I also paired with a Chanel-inspired houndstooth pattern and floral graphics.
The invites resembled magazine subscription inserts and the food tags highlighted the "Editor's Picks". The center of the dessert table included Ms. Piggy's "Top Looks", showcasing outfits and accessories with fondant on sugar cookies. In a black ornate frame, Ms. Piggy's silhouette carved out of rice krispy treats was decorated with fondant and her pearl necklace with flower, matching the graphics. I also had chocolate Eiffel Tower pops and lipstick cake pops displayed in push pops from Cupkate's Event Design (www.cupkateseventdesign.com) and pink strawberry cupcakes with black flower decor. In a jewelry box and nestled within pearl gumballs and chocolate candies were pearl and rock candy rings (adapted from a Martha Stewart tutorial at http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/225287/glamorous-candy-rings-how?czone=planning%2Fbridal-showers-cnt%2Fbridal-shower-themes and also featured on HWTM!) and a fondant brooch.
I had accessories and props available to take glam cover shots, including sunglasses, pearl necklaces, floral pins and chocolate piggy snouts on sticks! The favor bags included piggy bath salts, notepads and lipstick pens, bubble measuring tape and green Kermit lip gloss. We had such a fabulous time! It was truly such a fun theme that can apply to any age!
