Katherine Lande and I had the pleasure to host a table and speak at the Junior League event “Tea Through the Ages.” We thought it would be fun to combine my event design background and Katherine’s fashion expertise to create a look from runway to tabletop. We were inspired by Chanel’s Spring 2012 collection.
We used Nuage Design’s clear confetti paillettes as the foundation of the table. It was perfectly in line with the under the sea, mother of pearl, iridescent feel of their Spring 2012 collection. Inspired by Chanel’s beaded pearl bodice we used faux pearl bracelets from Sequin NY as napkin rings. The sea foam green napkins and teacups were heirlooms from Katherine’s family and tied in with the sea foam green in the collection. The graphic black and white dress was interpreted in the graphic black & white tray from T is for Table. Shades of grey, black and tan flower pom poms were attached to the back of the chairs from BLHND. The silver was from the models shoes and we interpreted that into the centerpiece of silver branches with iconic Chanel faux pearls strung and interspersed Camellia flowers (they were out of season so we replaced with gardenias)provided by FlowerMart. Each guest received a gift bag with Chanel Samples from Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach Gardens.
