Black and White just screams classic to me. Stylish, mature…yet always has a modern feel. A black and white party theme is fitting for many occasions, from weddings to a small dinner party. Here is an inspiration board to get your in the classic mood.
Party Inspiration Details
Set the stage with a simple and elegant table top. This black and white dinnerware from Noritake will pop placed atop a white linen table cloth. These damask cloth napkins would add texture to the table and can be purchased individually if you only need a few. Party decor like these candle stones, paper lanterns, and black and white place cards can really pull your theme together I found all of these great finds at Pink Frosting). For a sweet ending, serve guests Martha’s fabulous cheesecake recipe. Oh- and don’t forget the cocktail!
How about a Black Russian?
30ml Kahlua coffee liqueur
Shake the vodka and Kahlua together over ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.
Black Russian – a delicious cocktail made from vodka and a coffee flavoured liqueur such as Kahlua. For a White Russian float some cream on the top – even more decadent!(recipe via Polka Dot Bride)
