New York - Melissa Rivers hosted a private party to honour her mother Joan Rivers after her funeral.

The daughter of the late Fashion Police presenter held a small gathering on Sunday at Joan's home as a final tribute to her famous mother and she purposefully decorated the apartment with floral arrangements and plenty of candles in her mom's favoured style.

The insider told the New York Post's Page Six: "Melissa presented it just like Joan had done. It will probably be the last time we see the house that way. It was like Joan was going to come down the stairs."

Attendees included the socialite Blaine Trump, actor Hugh Jackman, author Nancy Collins, Lady Sharon Sondes and fashion designer Elie Tahari.

The Broadway League honoured the late comedienne on Tuesday after thousands of fans pressured the theatre to dim their lights out of respect for Joan.

A spokesperson for the Broadway League said: "Joan Rivers loved Broadway and we loved her."

"Due to the outpouring of love and respect for Joan Rivers from our community and from her friends and fans worldwide, the marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in her memory."

The Broadway league took to their Twitter account as well as their official website to make their announcement. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
