Setting the Table: Black & White

Setting the Table: Black & White


hey guys we’re Becca and Jesse with
Modern Vintage Events and this is Planning and Prosecco we’re finishing up a
tablescape using mostly black and white elements. We really love black and white
because it has such a clean, modern feel and then you can add in pops of color in
various places like the flowers to give it a little something-something.
We love using different tones like this dark charcoal plate and the gray glass
and gray, light gray chiffon runner to kind of add a little bit of depth and
texture to this place setting. And then we always like to try to create a little
bit of height on the table as well so you can do that with your glasses being
different levels you can do that a little bit with the flowers while still
being able to actually see over them and talk to people while you’re sitting at
the table. And we like to use a really fun flatware, this is black matte
flatware which goes really well with the black and white tones it’s not just your
regular old silverware. And we think that the black chairs with the white linen
give just the right kind of contrast to the table they really kind of make
things pop . Y’all know we love color so of course we had to add some color and
with the flowers. You can really do any color on this table scape because a
bright pop of color would look just as good as some of these muted tones. It’s
more natural, and you know we love texture we’re crazy suckers for texture
so we really like to bring the texture in in the linens as well rather than
doing like a flat poly we’ve got like a nice textured linen here and then we’ve
got our textured linen hemstitch napkins adding a little bit of a contrast as
well. And it’s all the little details we’ve got a little flower at each place
setting that just kind of adds a pop to finish off the table. If this was helpful
