{Table Top Tuesday} Red, Black, & Grey

Good evening and welcome to the Red, Black, & Grey edition of {Table Top Tuesday}.
This week we will be looking at a colour combination that is both elegant and sophisticated. It is a classic combination that offers you alot of options for personalizing your special day. Let's take a look at some of these great inspirations.

{Centerpieces, Decorations, & Table Settings}
This is really a no-brainer. There is no greater pop of colour than red, so using red accents really makes black and grey linens and decorations stand out. Also, think about the atmosphere that you want to create for your day. Grey is a more mellow colour. So, if you want to keep your day a bit low-key you would definitely want to go for grey as your main colour. Black is a bit harsher and alot more dramatic than grey. So be sure to use black as your main colour is you want alot more drama in the overall look of your special day.

The same goes for your stationary as does your decorations and table settings. Be sure to opt for grey as your main colour if you want to give your guests the impression that your affair will be a more mellow event. Opt for black as your main colour if your are going for a more dramatic look. And don't forget that red pop of colour! Invitations and save-the-dates are the first impressions that your guests will get about your upcoming nuptials so make sure that you use your colours to the best advantage.

There are so many ways to use these colours in order to get THE best possible cake for your special day. Think about red flowers and petals, black or grey lace, gems, bows, ribbons ... the options are endless! Also, using silver is a way to include "grey" on your cake without actually using not-so-appetizing-looking grey icing.
