Marie Antoinette Tea Party

January 18, 2010 at 2:24 pm (Sweet Nothings/Ramblings)

I watched Sofia Coppola’s visual masterpiece ‘Marie Antionette’ on Friday night (complete with delicious tiramisu) and found myself being pulled into that world of decadence and frivolity.

. .

The beautiful gowns complete with corsets, lace, hoop skirts and floral detailing made me swoon and I had serious sugar cravings all the way through due to the gorgeous pastel coloured sweet treats that distracted me in many of the scenes.

I had this wonderful notion that perhaps I could organise a group of friends together for a Marie Antionette themed picnic by the lake to dress up in amazing full dresses and eat tiny cakes and biscuits while sipping on tea or champagne and playing cards.

A little extravagant and outrageous I know, but wouldn’t it be fun? I am an actress at heart and love to dress up and be someone different for a few hours and certain parts of the Queen of France’s life would be quite fun to reinact.

Are there any movies that inspire you to the point of creating a party or event in the style of the film?

    Friends of mine put on a high tea / fashion parade to raise money for breast cancer last year, called An affair to remember, in western australia, and it was so beautiful.

    That’s just beautiful. I don’t see any harm in dressing up in full gowns! I have always dreamt of living back in the days of full length dresses and corsettes!

    My 21st theme was Movie and TV stars of the 1960′s. I had a ball!

Could it be only me or does it look as if like some of the responses appear like coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
