My mother and bridal party recently threw me a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-themed bridal shower at the Tiffany Juliet House and I could not have asked for a better location for my bridal shower to be held. Every guest left saying it was the “best shower they have ever been to” and gave rave reviews about the food!
THE SPACE: The house itself is absolutely beautiful- it’s over 100 years old and Corrine and her husband, Bill, have made it into a beautiful event space– maintaining the charming, vintage details while being modern and having a perfect layout for hosting events(it’s also a green building and environmentally friendly!) It’s obvious that this venue was a work of love as evident through all of the fine details– from the silk-wrapped light bulbs, beautiful chandeliers/light fixtures throughout, custom-designed curtains, perfect full-windowed alcove for displaying a cake, and the list goes on and on! On the day of my shower, after walking up the stairs, onto the porch and through the front door, you step into a beautiful, light-filled room with a table set up full of mini scones, muffins and croissants with sweet cream butter and jam, coffee/tea and additional tables/couches for seating- so guests can mingle and enjoy refreshments– there’s a charming china cabinet with vintage teapots/cups on display and a fireplace where childhood photos of us were displayed. Walking back into the main ballroom, there’s ample space( I believe it can seat somewhere around 80+ people?), chiavari chairs, and each table had the most adorable vintage teacups! Overall, the entire space was perfect space– it was so bright and airy (every photo was beautiful because the lighting was amazing)! One of the best things about the space, is the privacy- the entire venue is yours for your event.
THE FOOD: DELICIOUS!! For my shower, there were two options chosen for meals– Eggs Benedict over Crab Cake with Charon Sauce or Strawberry and Ricotta Stuffed French Toast with Vanilla Infused Syrup(my mom said that she was given a long list to choose from with a wide range of options). I had the strawberry and ricotta stuffed french toast- it was probably the best stuffed french toast I’ve ever had(often times with fillings- they tend to be overkill and so sweet that you feel sick after eating)- it was the perfect ratio of strawberry/ricotta, the french toast was perfectly cooked and not soggy! The bacon was nice&crispy(I ended up trying to steal some of my friend’s bacon if they weren’t fast enough– I’m the future bride, I can do what I want 😉 ) As for the eggs benedict over crab cakes- it looked delicious, I didn’t get to sample this but everyone said it was delicious! My Aunt and one of my bridesmaids have celiac and they were able to prepare absolutely delicious gluten-free variations!
SERVICE: As I hadn’t planned the shower, my mom filled me in and said that Corrine was so quick to respond to every email/phone call, was very flexible willing to do whatever you wanted and an absolute pleasure to work with. Throughout the entire event, Corrine took a very hands-on approach, making sure that everything was running as it should/making sure everyone was happy.
Honestly, I have nothing but great things to say- I had the best bridal shower I could have asked for and cannot wait to hold future events at the Tiffany Juliet House- I highly recommend!
