The perfect summer affair… black, white and sunshiny yellow. Black and white have a reputation of being very formal but by adding a color like yellow one can add the elements of fun, cheerfulness and excitement to the itinerary. Black and white shine best in patterns like checkerboard or damask, a table runner or dance floor are just the right places for an unexpected pop of pattern. Compliment the color duo with yellow accents like toes, ties, tinis and transportation. Personalize with particulars like a silhouetted cake topper or chair tags for the Bride & Groom. Black and white treats are almost too easy – serve guests a midnight snack of oreos and milk and black and white cookies would make fabulous favors. Keep signage sleek and chic using black chalkboards and monochromatic lanterns, balloons and lights will add plenty of allure. Play Micheal Jackson’s hit and dance just as you are – Queen bee!
