Black & White Party

Our New Year's Eve Party this year had a Black and White theme.  I got a great start on the decorations by buying Bird's Glitter and Snow Collection. Thanks Bird! I decided to take the theme a couple of steps further than just the decorations, by having a black and white dress code for the party and by having "black and white" food items on the menu! Take a look. 

I set up a Black and White dessert station, with black and white brownie cupcakes, chocolate-covered marshmallows, black and white cheesecake bites, black and white truffles, gorgeous black and white damask chocolate-covered Oreos from Sweeties by Kim, and black and white Oreo "bark". 

Only regret was not having enough time to set up a black and white back drop before the guests arrived! :-(

Here's a closer peek at the black and white cheesecake bites. I made the cheesecake at home, topped it with black and white chocolate chips, and cut it into cubes before serving it in tiny square cups. The abstract chocolate embellishments were made by piping melted chocolate onto parchment paper.

You can get the entire Glitter and Snow collection at Bird's Party

Check out these gorgeous damask chocolate covered Oreos! I wish I could claim these as my own creation. But I was lucky enough to find them from Sweeties By Kim

I used Black and White throughout the rest of the decorations for the party, coupled with glittery black top hats and black and white feather masquerade masks. 

I didn't get any photos of the food buffet (as I said, time was tight before guests arrived), but even the savory foods had a Black and White theme. We served white queso with black tortilla chips, black bean dip with white tortilla chips, black bean quesadillas, white cheddar puffs, a black and white cheese and olive platter, and various other black and/or white foods! 

We topped off the night with a black and white balloon drop (and champagne toast) at midnight.

Happy New Year! 


  1. Happened to look back to your older posts, and found this one! My, you really coordinated everything so beautifully. Imagine carrying the black & white theme through the decor, the party buffet, the sweets, even the dress code. Must have been a wonderful NYE party!

  2. Could you please tell me where did you get the black and white napkin rings and dessert toppers at. I love it. Thank you!
