Taryn Cox’s Cocktail Selection…..

These beautiful pictures are from Taryn Cox’s blog: “The Wife.” She had a 1920’s inspired champagne cocktail birthday party. It includes everything a bombshell event planner should expect from an event: flattering light with classy candles, special touches (note the hand-written menu), and food that looks straight out of a Marie Antoinette fashion spread. Kudos to Ms. Cox who appears to be a modern-day Grace Kelly. I found out about her through this delightful Elle Magazine spread that inspired me to break out my girly dresses and unabashedly overdress. Check it out!

“Presentation is EVERYTHING! My replica Birthday Cake from Martha Stewart Weddings. Lots of Pastel Hydrangeas. And an assortment of Sweet treats for my friends: Macaroons from Paulette in Beverly hills, Cookies from Milk, Mini cupcakes from Joan’s on Third.
She used place Ballet Pink place tags to label foods, with a gold wax seals underneath her handwriting. Love the macroons straight out of Marie Antoinette. Makes me want to take a trip to Lauduree Tea Salon in Paris.
