Monday Mashups: I'm Dreaming of a Black and White Christmas

Usually for Christmas you see a lot of red and green and even metallics. This year, we suggest going with a classic black and white theme for your holiday cocktail party. The chic look will display elegance and create a 'James Bond' feel for the evening. Get creative with the simplicity of this theme by incorporating some of the festive ideas below!

Chef Shadowboxes

Wolfgang Puck Catering's Chef Shadowboxes

Thank you Wolfgang Puck Catering for this great idea. These shadowboxes are meant to provide a strong visual behind a more standard food station. The chef can prepare appetizers as guests look on for an added feature. We love them for this theme because it can be done in black and white.

Ornate Ornaments

Fill an apothecary jar with silver balls.  This decor is a great accent to black and adds some POP to a centerpiece.  www.celebrationsbykat.com:

Ornaments sparkle and shine and are perfect to fill vases of every shape and size! These can also turn into the favors for your guests. Let them pick their favorite to add to their own tree as a token of a great night!

Dining Details

The contrast of the white napkins, black holdrs and sparkling white ornaments makes for the perfect rollup on the dining table. Easy to make, this is also a way to save some money by doing it yourself!
