Black and Yellow Themed-Girl's Night

As you've seen on my blog before, black and sunshine yellow are great color combinations for weddings and parties. Recently, I was hired by a client to handle the tablescape/centerpieces for her monthly women's group meeting. She wanted something fun and sassy, and she told me that the group's signature flower is the yellow rose.

I thought it would be fun to incorporate black and white zebra print into the centerpieces, and utilize lots of bright, cheery flowers.

I "blinged" out plain Caspari black crepe placemats with yellow and zebra print ribbon. These were placed at each table the night of the event.

I also utilized black boxes for the arrangements, and wrote fun sayings and quotations on each box on little white tags. I also incorporated zebra print ribbon and yellow ribbon on the black boxes.

Here are pictures I took at the store the day of the event before she picked everything up.

Here's the sweet note my client sent me the day after the girl's gathering:
"It was beautiful and fun, fun, fun. I am the now an act hard to follow. Thanks to you."
I love getting notes like this after an event! It's why I love my job so much.
