Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape

Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape - EverydayStarlet.com @SarahBlodgett

Continuing my tradition of fashion designer inspired Holiday Tablescapes (see my Kate Spade Halloween, and my Valentino Thanksgiving), I needed big inspiration for a big holiday.  After seeing this Chanel N°5 display at Macy’s I knew that the legendary brand was perfect for a legendary holiday like Christmas.

Here’s how I got the look for this Chanel Christmas in Paris Tablescape:

I wanted to focus on a vintage, Coco Chanel look.  I used a burlap table runner and a tweed looking ribbon to evoke the feeling of a classic, timeless Chanel suit.

I found the tabletop dress form at Wayfair and added some pearl strands and a black bow with ribbon from Jo Ann Fabrics.  For my Chanel perfume vase, I found a rectangular vase at Michael’s and made my own label.  Instead of N°5 I used N°12 to symbolize the 12 days of Christmas.

Finding red roses was harder than I thought this time of year, but after trying several stores, I found them at my local Jo Ann fabrics, and I bought all they had left.

I found clear plastic Christmas tree ornaments at Jo Ann Fabrics, and cut out gold glitter Cs to make a Chanel symbol.  I glued them on to be sure they stayed put.  The shape of these ornaments remind me of perfume bottles!

I filled tall vases with pearl Christmas balls from Michael’s, and scattered a few more over the table.  After all, it’s a Chanel table, you can’t have too many pearls.

The Eiffel Tower is actually a jewelry holder I stumbled upon at Michaels, and I had a coupon so I got it half price!  I added some fairy lights that I had from my Summer Nights tablescape.  Actually, my boyfriend, PET, came up with the idea of adding the lights.  Who says men can’t be useful when decorating.

I finished the look with some pine garland from last years Christmas table.

As much as this is a tribute to Christmas and Chanel, I also feel like this is a tribute to how beautiful, strong and resilient Paris is.  After all they’ve been through, they deserve some Holiday Cheer!

When I discovered MAC’s eyeshadow in Cranberry I just knew I needed it.  I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting to use it in a tutorial for the Holiday season!  This look is decidedly an evening look with the smokey eyes and pale lip.  However, it’s perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or and Holiday party or occasion.  So check out my video to see how I did this Cranberry Holiday Makeup Look…

Glamorous Easter Tablescape

Easter Table 3

Easter Sunday is this weekend, so I wanted to share with you my Pink & Gold Glamour Easter Tablescape….. You may recognize some of the accessories from my Valentine’s Table and my Oscar Table.  I added a few new editions to my tablescape collection, including my adorable cream and gold bunnies from Target and my gorgeous silvery/gold standing eggs from Pier One (I found them when I went there to pick up my new mirror for my bathroom makeover… I’ll be posting about that soon!)…..

Green & Gold St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape

St Patricks Day Collage

Here in New England, St. Patrick’s Day is like our Christmas (well if your Christmas involves a  lot of alcoholics.)  So I decided to do a Rustic Glamour Tablescape inspired by the luck of the Irish.  My inspiration was the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, so I used my gold sequin table runner from Easy, and placed it on top of my burlap table runner.  Then I used my round mirror from Michaels in the center.  I used mason jars from Michaels as vases for some white carnations (they always remind me of the St. Paddy’s Day parade) and some green filler flowers from the grocery store.  Then I found these adorable green pedestal dishes (also from Michaels).  I used them to hold my green tea cookies (recipe here).  I added some green ribbon from JoAnn Fabrics, as well as my JoAnn Fabrics gold mason jars (also see here & here), and my gold votives from Michaels (also seen here, here, & here).  The end result is fun and casual, but a little over the top… just like St. Patrick’s Day!

Vegan Matcha Green Tea Cookies for St. Patrick’s Day

Vegan Matcha Green Tea Cookies for St Patricks Day

I’m sure you’ve all seen the articles circulating Facebook about how unhealthy the Shamrock Shake is for you.  So I set out on a quest to make a St. Patrick’s Day dessert that is healthy and made with whole foods.  Since I’m relatively new on YouTube, I was browsing around for popular channels to Subscribe to, and I found Ingrid Nilsen’s channel (and her other channels including TheGridMonster) and found her recipe for Almond Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies (video here).  I decided to make a variation on these with matcha green tea powder and some lemon zest, to make a green tea cookie.  I also substituted vanilla extract for the almond extract, and omitted the chocolate chips.  The result is heavily (and you can eat the batter because it’s vegan).

Healthy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Healthy Easy Hot Chocolate recipe vegan Martha Stewart

This time of year practically screams for Hot Chocolate, especially here in New England. I have been trying to avoid dairy and limit my chocolate intake, so I was expecting to avoid the indulgence this year.  However, my cravings got the best of me, and I became determined to find a healthy version of this sinful winter drink.  I found so many options, but I did a variation on this Martha Stewart recipe.  If you like chocolate, but don’t like things overly sweet, this is the drink for you… and it’s super easy and can easily be made vegan…..

Christmas Tablescape: Rustic Glamour

Christmas Tablescape 2014 4

Red is such an easy go-to color for Christmas.  But red gets so much attention, not only on Christmas, but on Valentine’s Day, and the whole rest of the year.  So this year, I decided to create a holiday tablescape with no red at all.  I was originally going to focus on green, but as I was creating it, I realized that the green pine garland was enough… so I focused on gold metallic.  I started with a basic white table cloth, and a rustic table runner.  Then I ran some pine garland in the center, and added some gold mason jars from Jo Ann Fabrics, and some gold votives from Michaels (the votives were placed on top of mirrored star coasters for a real Starlet touch).  Then I draped some champagne colored glitter ribbon around the whole thing (this was inspired by a tablescape from Style Me Pretty at a Boston Blogger event).  The centerpiece was a little more difficult.  I tried so many combos before I found one that I loved.  I used a large glass (kinds looks like a brandy snifter), and I added champagne colored Christmas balls, some gold spray-painted pinecones, and some gold glitter leaves.  The extra gold pinecones, where scattered around the table….

Silver Maxi Dress Inspired By 90s Carrie Bradshaw

Sex and the City Carrie Bradshaw inspired silver maxi dress The Monogamist

Maxi dresses scare me… there, I said it.  I find they very often have spaghetti straps (the only kind of spaghetti I like comes with a red sauce), or they are loose and shapeless (making me look like I’ve eaten way too much spaghetti).  But when I saw this silver number at Forever 21, I just couldn’t help myself.  I ordered it, fully intending to be disappointed and return it… but to my surprise, it likes me… it really likes me.

For some reason it reminds me of the silver dress that Carrie Bradshaw wore in the Sex and the City episode The Monogamist, when she goes to the party with Big, then the party with Jennifer Aniston’s future fiancé, then waits for Big in the park… if you don’t know what I mean then catch up on your SATC episodes (especially the early ones from the 90s because the fashion is coming back).  I paired the look with a silver belt (because I like a little more shape), and a violet clutch (I checked the episode, and Carrie wore a purple clutch), did my hair in wild Carrie curls, added some Carrie inspired makeup, grabbed a Cosmo… and Voila! Instant 90s SATC glam… perfect for Holiday parties or NYE…. (more…)
