A black and white party.

What a great theme!! This could go in SO many directions.

Black and White Party Ideas

The most famous party of all time to follow this theme was Truman Capote’s famous party of 1966.

One of my favorite ideas using these colors is to think about the era of silent, black and white movies, perhaps along a theme of a 20's party.

Dressy or casual, adding to the colors or not, these ideas can fit any occasion. It is also a good party to do when you want to have some sort of theme to your party, but based on a color rather than a holiday, character, etc. Let's face it, black and white is something that is always "in style!"

Black and White Invitations

A simple classic white invitation would be very easy to do, with black ink. Choose a font that will convey the mood of your party. Honestly, anything you create that is in a black or white mix will be perfect!

Shop for Black and White Invitations at Amazon. They will probably have the biggest selection available in one place.

    Black and White Party Food Ideas

    Keep your party theme going by serving food to go with the theme.

    • Include black and white cookies!
    • Oreos
    • Brownies and Blondies
    • Include a candy bar with White and Black M&Ms, Junior Mints, Hershey Kisses Hugs, and other white or black candy
    • Everyone will love strawberries and pretzel sticks dipped in white and dark chocolate.  You can even include chocolate fountains in either white chocolate or dark chocolate (or if you have two fountains do one of both!)
    • Serve sandwiches on marble breads.
    • For cocktails (or their mocktail versions), serve chocolate martinis, white Russians.
    • Serve hot chocolate and coffees

    Party Fun and Activities

    • Ask guests to wear black and/or white. (this is where you can make the event dressy, or casual – black and white can go either way!)
    • If a movie theme, plan a party with a movie theme for adults or a movie theme for teens, show silent black and white movies on a screen, and display black and white cutouts of early film stars.
    • For favors, Bags of Hershey Kisses Hugs (they are black/white!)
