Design Inspiration...Bold Black and White

We all could use a little inspiration right?
Yes, I promised place cards and escort cards
as my next post (how exciting, right!), but 
at 504 Main I posted these photos
and just had to do it here too!
We did this set up a couple of years ago
as part of a photo shoot, but...
I have this obsession with black and white right now,
I still LOVE this look, and it may provide
a little inspiration...so I just had to share!
Bold Black and White
Sit back and imagine yourself sipping martinis
and dancing to Frank Sinatra
with the California Coast as your backdrop.

Embrace the clean lines of a vintage-inspired, slightly art deco influenced design married to the striking contrast of black and white for a look that is unexpected.

Stunning and simple, an arrangement of Parrot Merlot
and white tulips, with a hint - here and there- of simple white carnations (I love carnations) is perfect in a simple glossy black vase.

Sleek black china "pops" on the polka dot linen -
a little whimsy...a little modern!

A gorgeous peacock feather adds sophistication and texture.

Sleek vintage-inspired flatware.

One sweet carnation hiding...

Hope you enjoyed the little bit of eye candy.
This is one of my favorite things about being a wedding planner!

Happy Planning!
Holly
