color adventures: a black & white dinner party...

For our final black and white Color Adventures this month, we're topping it off with a black and white dinner party! This would be super fun for an adult birthday party or even a baby or bridal shower for someone who loves monochromatic shades. Here are some tips on putting one together...

1. Add simple and removable decor to the wall. We started with a white wall and added black stripes diagonally on the wall using black masking tape. Its an easy, temporary, and inexpensive way to make a statement without too much commitment.

2. Use paper plates in unexpected ways. In addition to mixing and matching various black and white patterned paper plates, we used smaller paper plates as wall decor as well. Simply attach with double-sided tape or wall tac for another temporary area of decor. If you focus the wall decor right near the dinner table, it creates a focus on the area where you'll be spending most of your evening.

3. Always add an accent of a third color. Similarly to our bedroom story, we added accents of gold into the color palette as well to bring in some glam, sparkle, and texture.
