If you know me, you know I love black and white with pops of green. So I started out with simple black and white dishes layered for dinner and salad. I’ve been wanting to use my black and white buffalo check napkins for quite some time so this was the perfect setting! I casually knotted them so it gives the table a less formal feel for this casual backyard dinner party.

Black and White Backyard Dinner PartyI knew I wanted botanical touches throughout the tablescape to tie in with the backyard/garden location so we spray painted vases bright white and filled with succulents for each guest. They served as fab décor for the table as well as an instant favor for guests to take home. Succulents are easy to care for so your guests will love that! The favor tags also served as place cards for each setting. I just used a calligraphy font I found online and printed them on cardstock right at home. It’s these little touches that truly make a tablescape come together in the end.

Black and White Backyard Dinner Party with Campfire S'more Eclairs for dessert!

Many of us have memories of making s’mores in the summer so I carried out this theme with mini s’mores eclairs for guests (filled with marshmallow crème). I love to have a sweet little treat to finish every party I host. Let me know in the comments below if you want the recipe, and I’ll be sure to share it soon!

As for centerpieces, the TIKI Brand tabletop firepieces did the trick. They’re low in height so chatting with other party goers isn’t a concern, and they add such a gorgeous glow to the evening. I’ve even kept a few outside on the table as regular décor so I can light them each evening while I’m outside playing with the family.

Here’s a bit more information about the tabletop firepieces — The Clean Burn Tabletop System creates a beautiful, bright flame with less smoke which is huge! You can now have a gorgeous ambiance and avoid smoke at your party. And there is no petroleum odors since it’s a plant-based formula. Plus, their reusable Roundwick burner-system provides up to three hours of burn time with every fill (4oz). They have a promo running for $5 off the system!

I hope you’re inspired to invite your friends over and set a gorgeous backyard dinner party!

Thanks to TIKI Brand for sponsoring our black and white backyard dinner party!
