Black and White Stripe Table Setting

4 February 2014

I love Valentine’s Day and I think having all your girlfriends over for a party is the perfect way to celebrate! On a recent trip to IKEA I found these to-do-for black and white stripey plates, and fell head-oven-heels in love. The TICKAR line has a couple other swoony pieces in black and white, but I knew I already had some things at home that would compliment it nicely. So I picked up my plates and bowls and exited as quickly as possible. When I got home I pulled out everything that could go with a black and white theme, and then I saw these hot pink placemats peeking out from their clearance sale bag. Boom! Perfect Valentine’s Day dinner party!

Hot pink placemats are from Tuesday Morning, found on major mark down. The white plates are my every day dishes and the black octagon plates are a thrifted find, the patter is Arcoroc Octime. (Z Gallerie sells a similar pattern called Octavia in black or white, by the way, if you’re on the hunt for octagon-shaped dishes.)

I just love the stripes and polka dots!

Black napkins from Amazon, napkin rings from Macys.

The flowers are about $5 dollars of grocery store flowers on the manager’s special  in 4 or 5 glass jars. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on flowers! I think these lasted almost a week, I was careful to trim them and give them fresh water every few days.

I really love how the hot pink really sets off the black and white. You could use any bright color, I think, for the same effect. Think teal or turquoise, purple, red, or emerald green.

Flatware is over 10 years old, wine glasses are from Pier 1 (super old as well).
