What to Where: Fall Fashion Inspiration & Wine Stained Napkins

 Fall Styling by fierce Fashion Fienes Hall & Saks h7s4

With so many fall fete’s to conquer, including Thanksgiving, we not only want to get your tables looking amazing but you too of course! I am always so inspired by fashion in my tabletop and textile designs that this time I asked style mavens Hall & Saks what they would wear to my modern glam Thanksgiving party, turning the tables around a bit.


Adrienne Saks & Dean Hall make up the fabulous styling duo behind  Hall & Saks  and are THE go-to source for style. Adrienne & Dean have been styling Hollywood celebs, models and socialites alike across the globe and we are so in awe of their talents, and very fortunate to call them friends. We are also very excited to bring you our first installation of WHAT to WHERE, where Hall & Saks will be showing you what to wear.. to where!


From Hall & Saks:
What to “Where” to Alchemy’s MODERN GLAM THANKSGIVING DINNER TABLE styled for CUCINA Enoteca, well plaid of course!  Yes, we are totally mad for plaid with a heavy sprinkle of gold!   Holiday time is all about deep tones with shimmering accents and Vanessa displayed it perfectly in every way from wine splattered napkins, over-sized gold goblets, to unexpected cobalt blue plates no attention to designer details were left untouched!  Just like Vanessa’s eclectic table scapes fashion combinations should be unexpected, bold, and daring as well.  We loved adding the edgy Alexander McQueen purse to the more conservative plaid dress, and finishing it off with an unexpected touch of blue on the ear.  For the men this year we think you need to make a grand entrance with your feet like our Jimmy Choo umbre fade loafers!  Also think about keeping it classy on top and party on the bottom or vice versa, like the pairing of the checkered plaid trouser with a clean white shirt.  Well enough about esthetics, we are off to do some major cooking!!!  HAPPY GOOBLE GOOBLE TO YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES…  Triple kisses H&S

And to recreate our fashion inspired Wine Stained Napkins see below for the complete step by step DIY!

wine stain3


– cotton canvas fabric
– rit dye in red and purple
– scissors
– paint brushes
– wine glass
– fork and spoon
– drying rack wine stain


1. Start by cutting out your napkins into your desired size. We went with 18″ x 18″ because we love how a larger napkin allows you to appreciate the details we’re creating.

2. Mix your dye. Follow the instructions on the back of the box and boil salted water on the stove, add the entire box of red dye and mix in half of the purple. Then, separate a few cups of this blend and add the remainder of the purple for a second, darker hue.

3. Lightly spray down your sink (or a bucket) with water for a bit of wetness but not too much. We wanted the fabric to have a few scattered we spots to help the dye bleed more. If the fabric is too wet, all of the colors will bleed together too quickly and you will lose the details.
