Black & White Stripes

Trend alert: black and white stripes are in! This pattern is bold, romantic, chic, and classic all at the same time. Mix it with floral, gold, lace, or even pineapples for any kind of look you want. If you’re planning a birthday party, graduation celebration, bridal shower, or a simple dinner party, try using black and white stripes as your inspiration. Here are our favorite party ideas:

First things first: invitations! We’re loving this trend of adding a pop of pattern to the envelope liners. These thin stripes add a chic and playful touch to the whole suite.

Cover your table in a black and white striped tablecloth or table runner. Try playing with the angle of the stripes to come up with a unique table setting like this one!

Don’t forget all the details of your party! You can find complimentary black and white accessories like cupcake holders, ribbon, paper coasters, and straws. Just be careful to not over do it, a little stripe can go a long way.
