For a party theme that’s class all the way, look to one of the icons of glamour: Audrey Hepburn. The 1960s hit Breakfast at Tiffany’s solidified a place in history for the LBD (little black dress) and has been inspiring party outfits for decades.
To pull off this party theme, lean into old-world glamour, elbow-length satin gloves and, above all else, couture jewelry. This theme is especially fitting for a bridal shower brunch or an elegant birthday fete.

Lend some authentic 1960s vibes to your party with a '60s band. Nothing does a better job at turning back time than live music playing to the decades. Look to classics from James Brown, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin.
Since all your guests are coming dressed up in their finest LBDs and flashy costume jewelry, an opportunity to capture the moment will be a welcomed keepsake. A photo booth with props (faux cigarette holders, round black sunglasses, layers of pearls) add to the overall ambience and doubles as a fun interactive activity.
Food is a staple for this party theme—but don’t stress over making all of it yourself. Host your event at a charming neighborhood café that can add authenticity to the ambience and take the cooking off your hands.
Serve up croissants and all things pastries. Arrange a tiered display for a family-style meal, or set out an assortment on a table off to the side where guests can pick their favorites while mingling.
If your party has a brunch spin, serve a cocktail that’s morning or afternoon friendly.
