Black & white go together like tea & biscuits! This classic combination, when done right, glows with elegance and class. When done wrong, can look like the aftermath of a hurricane at a $2 shop. The above combinations works so well because they take the simple color palette and pair it with bold, traditional patterns. The table setting gives it a modern edge, by replacing the expected white candle tapers with black ones. The bouquet also achieves a fresh look, by replacing a standard bow with a more structured one.
