Celebrating the 100th Anniversary: Titanic Soriee {Plus a $200 Giveaway!}

{Don’t forget to click the images to enlarge}

You may recall my little sneak peek and details earlier this month all about our Titanic Soriee!  Inspired by the Titanic – we wanted a modern party and a sprinkle of vintage. Pairing the bright turquoise + pink color combo to the modern mixing vintage feel really inspired the entire party which centered around the invitation from WH Hostess. Well now, we have all the details on just how we made the party come to life! You may recall reading all about it on The Party Dress blog but, we are sharing it once again here.

First, we have to share with you a little something any Jack & Rose fan longs for – Titanic pendent and chain from Pretty Whimsical – perfect for celebrating the 100th anniversary of that very sad day but a way to always remember a spectacular movie

Paper Pretties: The beautiful banner with the birthday girls name, Food Tends, Stickers, Cupcake Toppers, and all the paper pretties were custom designed by the lovely Kelly. How amazing did she do? Seriously, the invite is still framed in my 9 year old’s room!

Sweets Table: Filled with beautiful custom cake pops from Jens Pop Shoppe, Custom red-velvet cupcakes {just for us} from Georgetown Cupcake, and mouth-water Edward Marc Gourmet Assorted Chocolates. The beautiful light pink and turquoise macaroons {Crazy About Macarons} gave us that little touch of oh-so-chic vintage, just so pretty on the Grace & Gumption stand.  The Heart of the Ocean cookies were a huge hit from Firefly Confections as we reminise on that beautiful necklace from the hit movie. And oh my gosh, can we say perfection? Her vintage lace flower cookies were just to-die-for. We seriously wanted to frame the cookies and hang them on the wall. Almost too pretty to eat as they sat nicely on a Magnolia Creative Co. platter. The cupcake stand in a bold turquoise perfectly matched the well-dressed cupcakes! We topped them off with cupcake toppers and pom pom toppers  along with cupcake wrappers custom designed by Pinwhirls. Best dressed cupcakes! Tiny Giraffe blocks spelling out the birthday girl’s name really topped it off!
Each guest sat down to their WH Hostess placecard being held with a simple holder from Homes and Weddings. We mixed paper plate pretties with vintage plates and teacups along with a Juliska Goblet {win them below!}  – all on top of adorable Anchor Place mats.The tables wouldn’t be complete without the Anchor Place mats from The Fortunate Home and cocktail napkins. It was great that we were able to customize them with our theme! Polka Dot Market also had the perfect striped pendents which we placed into chocolates for easy picking and polka dot plates. Magnolia Creative Co. hand-painted the beautiful square platters that were perfect for pretty cookies and chocolates. To tie in the elegance of the Titanic, we used Juliska {enter to win below!} goblets, stacking bowls and a charge. We placed rustic LOVE candle holders throughout with silver trays along with an assortment of milk glass vases and vintage Etsy find like the Trinket Box – so beautiful & perfect for this theme. Make sure you shop the shoot below for all the details on how to get the look!

Favors: Centered around a LOVE burlap banner, each guest received lots of goodies! We printed a ticket to the event as each guest arrived. They were wrapped in lace will a full-size candy bar. We picked up small vintage frames from Michael’s and framed the titanic ship stickers designed by Kelly — that way each guest took a little memory home after the special day! Monogram cookies from Fun Favors were given to guest as they left along with Edward Marc Ice Cream Pop chocolates.

Tips for a Titanic Theme Party!

 Lace: We placed lace throughout the party. Across the plates, around the favors, tied around the chairs – this gave it that touch of vintage sparkle.
Old is New: I shopped my house and my grandmothers too! It was a great way to make vintage pieces new again with Milk Glass vases, vintage plates, tea cupcakes and more. You won’t believe what is right in front of you! Just because it’s a party doesn’t mean you have to shop at just the party store! Be creative.

Formal Attire: We asked guests to dress in their Sunday’s best! They had a dance off as the Titanic soundtrack played in the background, along with a fashion show! We had 3 judges who choose the best dressed at the party. Winners received $10 gift cards to Target. It was so fun to see everyone dressed up! We had lots of fascinators for guest to wear and really get into character.

Mason Jars: We rolled mason jars in glue and glitter! They made the perfect place for Pinwhirls custom-designed pinwheels and looked great on the table!
