Feeling inspired by the black and white table decorations I used on last month’s ‘Silver Night’ themed table, I thought I would look again at further ways of decorating your party tables with the age old classic colour palette of black and white…
I’ve created two themes and thought I would focus more on special occasion table decorations (not necessarily just weddings as many people I know have landmark birthday’s on the horizon!
When decorating this table, I had men in mind (what’s new I hear you say) as they have birthdays and special occasions too, though not as important as ours!. Men aren’t often too fussed when it comes to the details in life (am I generalising?) so simplicity is key!
I have used black table linen as this has a very dramatic effect and used a simple white organza table runner to highlight the table centrepiece. I think that a bit of greenery always looks nice so have opted for a simple topiary ball as a centrepiece and spruced it up with a few black feathers and black baubles. I also used a single feather in each wine glass.
Balloons give an instant party feel to any room or table. I’ve gone for black helium balloons and tied a single balloon to each place setting around the napkins, remember to use a simple slip knot when doing this so guests can easily access their cutlery and napkins!

This table theme has been completely inspired by the beautiful orchid flower. I’ve added interest to the plain white table linen by using strips of organza and satin ribbon in lengths across the table, this works really well with any ribbon colour/material combination!
I’ve folded the napkins into a ‘waterlily’ style (check me and my napkin origami-ing out!!) and popped a little favour box treat in the centre of each napkin. I’ve tied the favour boxes with purple ribbon to emphasise the purple detail on the petals of the orchid flowers and used a sparkly gem as my flower centre.
To finish off the garden look, I’ve used black glitter butterflies on plain white namecards and also scattered a few extras here and there across the table.

For this look I’ve turned to the bygone era of 1940’s glamour…. There are so many wonderful, stylish influences from this decade from the chemistry of Bogart & Bergman in Casablanca, to the timeless beauty of Ava Gardner.
Don’t be afraid to have a theme running throughout your special day, it doesn’t mean you have to resort to a full scale mock paper mache Eiffel Tower! Introduce elements of your chosen theme, such as naming tables after famous Parisian landmarks.
I’ve tried to soften the look in my choice of table decorations, using beautifully intricate butterfly placecards, feathers in the glassware and ribbons with real flower heads wrapped around the napkins.
