Style Notes Guest Post: Chanel Inspired

Chanel storefront, Paris, 31 Rue Cambon
Bonjour! I'm Camille from Style Notes, and I'm thrilled for this guesting opportunity on Mimi & Meg. As an event planner, I constantly see party inspiration in unlikely places: movies, paintings, and in this case, the tres chic Parisian storefront of Chanel's flagship. Think vintage glamour and graphic black and white...that girly-with-edge combination that French women seem to master so effortlessly.

Martha Stewart Weddings
White dishes and pink petals are demure, but bold black details give serious attitude by infusing a bit of naughtiness. Dress the table with couture touches like ruffles, pearls, and luxe fabrics.

Laura Hooper Calligraphy
Coco loved beautiful details, and nothing is more classically elegant than an invitation with perfect black script on crisp white paper.

Flowers, Artfool; Ties, Martha Stewart Weddings
Anemones are delicate and lovely, but there's something about their bold black centers that makes them edgy. Bundled into haphazard arrangements, they infuse a bit of decadence to a party centerpiece. European men love bold accessories: dress up your date with fashion-y ties in graphic pinks, black, and white.

Vintage Chanel Serving Tray
Nothing says Parisian glamour like a vintage Chanel serving tray. Use it as a perch for champagne & foie gras.

White Dessert Buffet, Amy Atlas
The French love sweets, and what could be more fun than sampling tiny versions of petit fours, macarons, and truffles? Displayed in geometric rows of black and white, they become a bold element to party decor.

Black and White cupcakes, Le Cupcake
Ooh-la-la! Mademoiselle Chanel would have swooned over these couture creations: jet black baby cakes topped with silver dragees and sugary white anemones.

Champagne and Table Numbers, Style Me Pretty
Greet your guests with bubbly to set the tone for celebration. Table numbers with Art-deco details are a classically refined touch.

Reese Witherspoon in Paris, Vogue
Just the type of frock I'd wear to our French-inspired fete: sexy and sculptural with an hourglass silhouette, this dress oozes Parisian sophistication.
