Black and White

Hosted by Susan and Leigh

Hello! Isn't it a wonderful Thursday? Great day for something inexpensive but elegant.

"Black Ties On"

My B&W pieces

Want to party? Let's go... I found just the right one. Hope your little black dress is ready or have dusted that ol' tuxedo up in the attic. Because... Look... there's a classy placesetting just for you! Are you comfy?
Let's turn down the lights and let the glow of the candle illuminate your wondrous glamour...
Let's look at you from above and make the stars smile.
Let's see some of the special touches... A pair of chic IKEA S&P shakers. At $2.99 a pair, you can afford a juicy filet mignon!
This little gem of a lowball glass with black glass strip on the inside! Marshall's thought you deserve something unique and "just right"... (The price of $1.99 a piece is the "just right" factor) LOL

So... did you enjoy your formal evening? Sure hope you did; I had a great time with you. Thank you for coming along...

To our lovely hosts, a big thank you and glad to see you here again!

  16. Very eleagantly set with just the right formal touch...Christine

  17. Chandy,
    It feels like I have not visited for a long time, work has been so busy the past few weeks. I really like the way you folded the napkin with the silverware. I have been sitting here trying to figure out how it stays that way. It is very neat looking! I hope summer is going well for you and your children, it has been rainy all season, but at least I don’t have to shovel snow. Take care.

  18. Cute theme for a tablescape. I love black tie affairs as long as I can fit into my little black dress but those high heels kill me:)

  19. Great job Chandy! It does remind me of a black tux affair, or prom! Cool ideas! Cindy

  20. Black and white is so classy and elegant! Nicely done, love the envelop/napkin/invitation! Very creative!


  21. Now how did you know that it's been too long since I've been to a black tie affair? Almost two years... so i appreciate the chance to experience a little formal ZING in this charming post.

    I love those glasses, with the stripe. Very chic! Now, I wonder if Howard still fits his tuxedo?

  22. Love black & white and your setting is great!
