Before modern brides took over, the color black was left for funerals.  Today, however, brides are incorporating black into their beautiful white weddings and it’s hotter than ever!  Black and white weddings are not only classy, but sophisticated, sexy and even a little edgy too…

If you consider yourself a modern bride, consider bringing this stylish look home to your table as well.  The pairing of these colors allow you to transform your table from casual to dressy, just like white dishes do…only with a little sass

Spice it up a little with punches of color for any season or occasion, using flowerslinens or whatever else comes to mind.  Oh yes, black and white is here to stay, wouldn’t you say?  Now, how will you Set Your Table?

…Using Popular Whites!

 Today, I came across this gorgeous table, set for a birthday celebration over high tea.  Lovely, isn’t it?  I find it totally inspiring how nicely food can be displayed by using simple white dishes.  Go from casual to fancy in a matter of minutes, by adding a just a few colorful accents!

Keeping it simple never looked so good…
