When I started putting together this inspiration board, it was with a formal wedding in mind. However, after pulling these ideas together, I really think you could use this for any type of formal entertaining! I absolutely adore the use of bold, black and white stripes – from the tablecloth, to the ribbon used to hang placecards from, to the crisp white edge of the party favor box. It’s crisp. It’s modern (although black and white stripes are very traditional!). And it’s the perfect accent to almost any color combination!
I would love to see this concept re-created for a formal birthday party, a charity event, or even a bridal shower!
