Runway to Tabletop ~ Red Carpet Reds

Last Sunday the Golden Globes kicked off the red carpet season.I always look forward to critiquing the red carpet dress parades, and this year's award nominees didn't disappoint! My pick for best-dressed of the evening was actress Lupita Nyong'o wearing a modern minimalist red gown by Ralph Lauren. While some stylists discourage their clients from wearing red for fear of clashing with the carpet, I completely disagree! I think Lupita, Emma Watson, Amy Adams, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus all looked striking. Most crimson dresses can actually complement a red carpet, unless they are long sleeved.

An all red event can come off feeling a bit boudoir. Try mixing ruby red with dark burgundy, similar to what Amy Adams is wearing. The different shades will create depth and richness for your party decor. For a recent event, we mixed these rich red ruched Chameleon Chairs with burgundy and coral hues. Having the linens a touch lighter or a shade darker than the seating allows the chairs to shine.


 After all, these chairs were made to steal the show!
