Entertaining | Black & White Dinner Party

black white dinner party #apothicwhite  #msg421

Okay, I think I might actually see Spring on the horizon…finally! And you know what that means? Time to put away the red wine and start chilling the white wine! I teamed up with Apothic White to share ideas for a dinner party inspired by this “white with darker motives” wine.

Apothic White is all about the darker side of white wine – think sexy, edgy, and a little bit rock n roll. I created a dinner party with that in mind and played on the idea of ‘opposites':  black & white, goth & glam, leather & lace, etc.

Use this inspiration for a black & white dinner party for two, or a playful birthday celebration for those over 21. Here are the details…

Dinner Party Details:

  • Black & White color scheme – nothing says “the darker side of white” quite like the combination of a black and white color palette.
  • Leather & Lace – Feminine and masculine are both represented when you layer a lace table cover on top of the table cloth, and add some leather details to the table setting. I made napkin wraps tied like corsets, using thin leather fabric and ribbon.
  • Gothic & Glam – I added Gothic-style studs to the menu cards, and a glam rhinestone ‘runner’ down the center of the table.
  • Black & White menu – White Parmesan cheese crusted with black pepper, white wine salami, black & white pasta with homemade Alfredo sauce, blackened tilapia, asparagus, and dark chocolate lava cakes with white chocolate center {use this recipe and replace the dark chocolate candies in the center with white chocolate candies; cook in individual ramekins}.
  • Serve Apothic White wine – This blended white wine combines Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Riesling for a crisp, slightly sweet, and fruity wine.
