Parties centred around games are lighthearted and full of friendly, competitive energy. The dominoes-themed party is an extravagant version of a game night party. The only difference is that a dominoes party has style. An entire party atmosphere can be created using the game pieces as inspiration. The dominoes' black-and-white theme is elegant with sharp contrast. Its definitive shapes and opposite colours suggest a dressy, modern art feeling your guests will enjoy.

  1. 1

    Draw black domino dots on white rectangular pieces of cardboard paper with a marker. Fold the paper in half to create domino invitations. Write the address, time, date and theme of the party inside the invitations and mail them to your guests.

  2. 2

    Ask your guests to dress in dominoes-themed clothing. Suggest black-and-white attire and anything with spots. Encourage themed accessories like black-and-white hats and spotted scarves and socks.

  3. 3

    Serve food that reflects the domino theme. The ingredients of many dishes can be arranged in the shape and style of domino pieces. Pepperoni pizza, black and white cookies, chargrilled white fish, white rice, black beans, white bean soup with kale, homemade french fries cut into rectangles and a domino-decorated cake all carry out the theme.

  4. 4

    Serve beverages that have either dark and light contrast or make use of spots on solid. Red and white wine, punch with fresh circular fruits added, black and white Russians, espresso martinis and hot cocoa with marshmallows all hint at the theme.

  5. 5

    Decorate your venue with alternating black or white tablecloths with opposite-coloured plates, napkins, cups and silverware. Place dark- and light-coloured flowers like white roses, peonies and tulips next to dark-coloured flowers like black irises, black beauty hollyhocks and "Queen of the Night" tulips. Black and white candles create an elegant, romantic atmosphere.

  6. 6

    Set up a domino tournament. Split your guests into several small teams and have them play until one team is left. Award the winning team a prize.
