Black And White Invitations Perfect For Your Black And White Party!

Fun And Fabulous Black And White Invitations
To Kick-Off Your Black And White Party In High Style!

If you have decided to host a Black And White Party, then it is quite possible that you have opted to go with a dramatic and perhaps elegant affair. However, I realize it could also be a retro type of party, a fun get together, or perhaps a black and white racing theme.

For purposes of this article, I'm going to assume that you are hosting a more formal soiree, perhaps along the lines of the original black and white ball hosted by Truman Capote. Therefore, the invitation ideas that I've provided on this page will follow this line of thought.

Of course you will want to be sure to create a well-crafted invitation in order to set the proper tone for your party, along with eliciting the expected response. First of all, if time permits, why not make your own invitations. All that's needed are a few supplies and a little creativity. If this sounds like sommething that you dould like to do, here are a few invitation ideas for you to consider:

BLACK AND WHITE ZEBRA PRINT INVITATIONS - Using a zebra print scrapbook paper, create the background to your invitation. Type up your party info onto a piece of white scrapbook paper and glue to the center of the zebra print. Leave at least a 1-inch border so everyone will see the black and white print. If at all possible, pop them into a black and white zebra print envelope. If this isn't an option, then go for a black envelope with white or silver print.

Variation: Do everything as noted above, except use a black and white polka dot print paper or a black and white floral print paper in place of the zebra print.
