We are continuing our new Theme Thursday series this week with… Orange and Black… partly because of upcoming Halloween parties, but also because the two colors together can make a stunning theme. Whether you are planning a Halloween party, a bridal shower, or a themed wedding, I have lots of Orange and Black for you today!

What about centerpieces?

Included in the post are very detailed instructions for designing a lovely orange and black tablescape.
From Brooklyn Bride, a modern tablescape in orange and black! Great inspiration, with a list of materials used at the end of the post:

Stepping away from weddings for just a minute… I found this adorable styled 1st birthday party post on The Tom Kat studio blog – it includes pink, but I just couldn’t NOT share it. It’s a good example of orange and black AND pink.
What do YOU think about Orange and Black as a theme? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
