Impromptu Summer Party – Black and white stripes

While we just got done with a weekend of parties here in the US we always want more. Summer is so often about last-minute get togethers ….which often turn out to be the most fun. Here are a couple of ideas to put together and have a smart look, easily done with a visit to a local nursery for centerpieces. While not detailed to death to stress you out these boards are meant to make it easy to put together with a few calls.

Black and white stripe cloth, black charges, black and white polka dot napkins with shock of pink geranium for the table . The near rusty-brown hurricane base puts together one of my all time favorite color combos, black white and browns.
