This color combo that Heather at Outstanding Occasions put together is a fave of ours! We love the contrast that’s so crisp, clean, and STUNNING! The pale blue and red party theme was incorporated into every detail, from the blumebox centerpieces, to the favors,  even the Strawberry-Lime, and Berry Lemonade Jones sodas were a perfect match.

Consider creating this tote for your bridesmaids to carry in lieu of the standard bridal bouquet.
Decorate the 6″ blumebox with fabric, ribbon, or your favorite wrapping paper to complement your wedding color palette. Then add the ribbon handle by drilling two holes through opposite sides of the blumebox and tie each end off in a knot, turning it into a purse. Fill it with flowers or leave it empty to be filled later with their personal accessories.
Here we used decorative gift-wrap to adorn the 6” blumebox, which allowed us to tie in the romantic black and white theme of the wedding.
This would also make a great basket for the flower girl to hold her petals!

Personalized black and white centerpiece

This do-it-yourself centerpiece idea is a simple way to exhibit memories of the couple, fitting for either their engagement party, rehearsal dinner or on their wedding day.
Select images of choice, cut to suit and frame against layers of decorative paper and ribbon. Also a great idea for identifying the tables for your guests!

Modern black and white wedding centerpieces

These black and white centerpieces were created by using an assortment of blumebox sizes and simply adding decorative ribbon to the corner edges of each blumebox.
Cut ribbon to desired length, glue and you’ll have an exquisite focal point for your table!
Another great idea: reverse the color combination and start with black blumeboxes adorned with white ribbon.

This ultra-feminine arrangement is quite simple to re-create. Start with the blumebox size of your choice preferably in a lingerie-like hue, such as this hot pink vase, then measure out where you would like the two “X’s” that will mimic the ties of a corset, mark and then puncture the blumebox with a pencil so that you have a total of 8 wholes. Thread the ribbon through the wholes so that they form two “X’s”. Obviously, this can be done on one or all four panels of the blumebox. Black ribbon on pink and vice-versa, or red ribbon on black or vice versa would work well. Fringe tulips add to the romantic, slightly naughty theme! This would also be a fun centerpiece for a bachelorette party!
