Ideas For A Black & White Party

There are some party themes that are classic and even ‘famous’, for instance P. Diddy’s White Party or the Go Red party for heart health. With that in mind I was assigned to create some ideas for a Black & White party for Celebrations early last year. I’m just now {remembering} to share some of the photos with you guys here. The color scheme immediately brought to mind the elegance + art deco + musical influence of the early 1940’s, and that’s what inspired my design.

I shared many great ideas for a creative tabletop and a black & white sweets station.   This theme would be perfect for a milestone anniversary, special birthday, or engagement parties.  You can see the entire article for this 1940’s inspired black & white party by following the link. Cheers!
