{#186} black + white

I can't believe that this is the last inspiration board for 2011. Last year, I create a champagne & gold one but this year I wanted to go a little low key but still fun and festive. You can never go wrong with black and white. It's modern, sophisticated and is the perfect palette to ring in 2012! 

{colors} black, white, silver
{photos} caviar {sunday suppers} anemone bouquet {paul johnson photography} balloons {martha stewart weddings} bouquet {martha stewart weddings} tights {katie's pencil box} oreo cookie cake {party start me} bride's attire {a gift wrapped life} garland {poppytalk} martini {martha stewart weddings} lounge {rue magazine}
