Creating an Elegant Black and White Event

January 26, 2016

When you’re after a crisp, classic and stylish look for your black tie wedding, corporate gala or fundraiser benefit, one color scheme the will fit the bill: black & white. It can be accessorized in so many ways that it’s easy to make the look unique, and we love the amount of variation that’s possible with this classic combo.

Adding metallic accents is perfect for dressing up a black & white color scheme. Today, we’re exploring one way by adding beautiful gold shine to basic black and white to make a truly inspired event.

To create this upscale look, subtly striped black table linen is the backdrop for a glamorously decorated tablescape. The décor was deepened by glowing chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.

The napkins, which are black and white striped, continue the stripe theme established by the table linen, and the coordination doesn’t stop there.

The gold charger plates match the gold gift boxes, and both of those pair with the chairs and the candlesticks in the centerpieces.

The black and white theme even makes an appearance on the menus, with an eye-catching striped border, and the pastel pink and yellow floral arrangements ensure the tables look balanced and sophisticated.
