Planning a wedding reception can be a lot of fun. You've selected your colours and now need to determine how best to use them. Decorating your reception in pink, black and white allows you to use classic colours and lines. This colour combination can made be bold by using hot pink, adding a touch of whimsy, or can emulate classic Hollywood styling by using a softer pink. Whichever shade of pink you choose, your reception is sure to stand out from all others.

Table dressings can boldly incorporate the colour theme. You may choose to alternate between black, hot pink and white table cloths, or select classic white table and chair covers choosing bold floral arrangements contrasting with black and white place settings. You can play with solid tablecloths adorned with colourful table runners or pink ribbons. For a bold look, include hot pink napkins, black and white striped tablecloths, with black-stemmed wine glasses, and art deco black and white plates. Play with polka dots, using a solid cover on a round table and using circular napkins in bold colours to adorn the table.

There are endless possibilities for your display cake. Starting with a white cake, add bold pink-coloured silk ribbons, black polka dots, and trim with thin black ribbon. Cupcakes of bold and soft hues, placed on black pedestals, allow you to play with multiple design ideas and allow your guests to choose from numerous cake styles. You can also start with pink icing, adding white orchids or roses, and adorn with black satin ribbon. Enjoy the opportunity to play with the colours and styles, keeping in mind the general theme you are choosing for your wedding.

Flower Arrangements

There is no shortage of options available for floral arrangements when decorating with pink, black and white. Choose your favourite pink and white flowers from an assortment of hydrangeas, gerbera daisies, roses, orchids, tulips, and lilies. Use pink topiary plants with black or white pots to add floral touches around the room. Try black or white vases with bright pink gerberas, or perhaps fill clear vases with black and pink accent stones along with white orchids. Another option is to use black-tiered platters and decorate with shades of pink and white heads of roses and carnations.


Use black boards, decorated with ribbons and pink flowers, with white chalk as accents around your reception hall. Or, choose white boards in classic frames where guests can leave well wishes using black markers. Serving pink drinks adds another fun detail to your reception. Offer selections such as rose champagne, pink cosmos, and Shirley Temples. Choose wedding favours that add to your theme, such as light pink love notes, wrapped with a thin black and white polka dot ribbon. Use satin sashes in your accent colours to add a touch of colour to railings, table tops and chair backs. Place black serving bowls full of pink and white jelly beans on side tables, or perhaps use black and white pictures with soft pink hues displayed on black easels throughout the hall.
