How to Throw a Black and White Bridal Shower
Winter is the perfect time for a crisp color scheme like black and white. If you’re hosting a shower during the winter season, a black and white bridal shower should be on your list of themes to consider. Clean, bold and refreshing – the perfect way to celebrate the bride to be!
Stripes are Always in Style
A black and white bridal shower is perfect for the trendy and posh bride who loves a mix of Kate Spade style and modern graphics. Have fun with this shower by including stripes where ever you can.
Black and white striped table runners and linen napkins dress up the area for the guests to sit, chat and eat. Striped straws and drink stirrers are a fun way to spruce up your guest’s cocktails, and adding stripes to the sweets is a great way to tie this black and white shower all together.
Make it Glam with a Touch of Gold
While a black and white color palette for a party is always classic, adding a touch of color can change the feel of the entire day. For this black and white bridal shower, add some bits of gold to make this shower feel extra glam.
Add in gold pieces to each area you decorate. Use vintage gold cups and vases in the centerpieces and to use as containers to hold things like forks and straws – they’ll be both useful and a beautiful addition to your black and white bridal shower.
Down the center of the tables, sprinkle gold votive holders throughout your centerpieces for a pop of elegance on the table. Use gold chargers under the plates, gold napkin rings and gold flatware as a way of making your black and white bridal shower pop.
With black and white and a sprinkle of gold here and there, your shower will be trendy and glamorous.
A Fresh Green Finish
There isn’t a wedding shower theme that greenery can’t brighten – there’s always room for some green garland or a sweet green plant or two. Bring this theme together with a few of these touches and your bridal shower will be a beautiful scene.
Greenery down the center or the table adds elegance and a natural feel and will really make the gold votive holders stand out.
You can include greenery in your favors too! TIny ferns planted in little white pots make the perfect takeaway for this black and white wedding shower – the guests will have their very own houseplants to remind them of celebrating the bride.
A black and white bridal shower doesn’t have to lack creativity. With a contemporary palette mixed with golds and greens, this wedding shower will be a stylish party that would make any bride and her guests excited to celebrate her big day.
