An Elegant Dinner Party
A basic black-and-white tablescape is a chic landscape for a timeless dinner party.
The black and white stripes of the tablecloth set a clean, modern tone that’s softened by the lush white hydrangea in black wooden boxes.
Play up the silver on the table — tie your flatware in a criss-cross pattern with black-and-white striped twine.
Sporty Soccer Party
The striped tablecloth becomes sporty with this fun, yet sophisticated, soccer viewing-party theme. You’ll let your favorite soccer fans know you take the game seriously.
The focal point is the grass centerpiece — glue letters to black-and-white striped straws to spell out “Score,” “Goal,” or the name of your team.
Festive soccer-themed napkins continue the color scheme — lay a green napkin underneath to bring out the green of the grass centerpiece.
Serve beer from the countries of the opposing teams. If they come in black bottles, all the better. If not, pour them into soccer cups with striped straws.
Little trophies, soccer whistles and photos of your favorite players add a playful tone to your gathering.
Glittery New Year's Eve Party
Welcome the new year in style by adding gold accents to your black-and-white accessories.
A gold table runner and chargers add a swanky feel to your party. Set black cards with “Happy New Year” messages written in gold into the soft white floral arrangements.
This table setting has the feel of formal wear with the top plate wrapped in a black napkin overlayed with a striped bag of confetti. The elegant noisemaker tops off the festive look.
Not only the guests get to dress up! Cover your champagne bottles in gold mesh for more sparkly gold accents.
Don’t forget to fill the bags with flashy gold and silver confetti for a sparkle explosion at midnight.
