Miss Piggy in Paris!

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 from Cup­cake Cutiees. The party debuted on Amy Atlas, but read on for addi­tional new pho­tos and more details!

I designed the invites to resem­ble mag­a­zine sub­scrip­tion inserts ~ yes, the annoy­ing ones that always fall out when you’re try­ing to read them!

Since the party was tak­ing place in Miss Piggy’s Vogue Closet, I actu­ally set it up in my daughter’s room and uti­lized her dresser to set up the dessert table. I infused a bit of green through­out to sym­bol­ize Ker­mit the Frog, which also worked well with the light green walls. I cre­ated food tags to high­light 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, I carved Miss Piggy’s sil­hou­ette out of rice krispy treats and dec­o­rated it with fon­dant and her pearl neck­lace with flower, match­ing the graph­ics. I also made choco­late Eif­fel Tower pops and lip­stick cake pops dis­played in push pops con­tain­ers from Cupkate’s Event Design. Scat­tered through­out the table were some straw­berry cup­cakes with black fon­dant decor. Lastly, in a jew­elry box and nes­tled within pearl gum­balls and choco­late pearl can­dies were pearl and rock candy rings that I made (adapted from a Martha Stew­art tuto­r­ial), along with a fon­dant flower brooch.
I had acces­sories and props avail­able to take glam cover shots, includ­ing sun­glasses, pearl neck­laces and flo­ral pins. I found a choco­late mold for piggy snouts, which were not only great to give away with the favors, but also served as addi­tional photo props! The favor bags included piggy bath salts, notepads and lip­stick pens, bub­ble mea­sur­ing tape and green Ker­mit lip gloss.

As you can see, we had a fab­u­lous time pos­ing for our mag­a­zine pic­tures! It was truly such a fun theme that can truly apply to any age! Who’s excited to see the new Mup­pets movie? MOI!
