Entertaining in Style!

Entertain in style this weekend with a glamorous table setting at your Oscar party! A simple wood branch and moss can be embellished with feathers and flowers to create a dramatic centerpiece. Your decor will look as stunning as the looks on the red carpet!

For the dramatic centerpiece, I used a long branch covered with moss as the base and layered it with flowers, feathers and berries.  To keep it sophisticated still I kept the color scheme of the centerpiece a monochromatic pink.  This way it is fun and frivolous but not tacky.

FOOD MEETS FASHION!

Last week, I went to a dinner event in Los Angeles called Taste Fashion that was presented by The Avenues: Art, Fashion and Design District.  The concept was to create, “an extraordinary dining experience pairing haute cuisine and cocktails where fashion plays the muse.”  The 22-course dinner, prepared by The Bazaar by José Andrés at the SLS Hotel, included a live fashion show of the Fall 2011 collection by 3.1 Philip Lim – the muse for the chef.
