We are looking for interesting but not over the top Black and White checked ideas, and the only things that are coming up checkered stuff for racing. Any Ideas?

I know that MacKenzie Childs has a black and white checkered pattern, maybe you could get some vases from there for your centerpieces. That could be rather expensive but maybe you could DIY some.
Here's a link to the site-

For centerpieces you could "make" mini checkered patterns with glass votive holders. Group a whole bunch together and then break them up into little groups of about four and in one group put white roses and the other group put black votive candles and then just alternate them for the pattern.

SORRY!! That's the best idea that I could come up with!!

Maybe incorporate chess boards somehow? I did a google search to try and find something but you're right. It's all racing and weird looking shoes. So chess boards is all I can think of to help.

Sorry hun. I'm just not a decorating expert. Checkers is not something I would know what to do with.

Edit:
FH just informed me that ska is a kind of music. Why not use that?

I would incorporate the Ska theme in by things other than decor. A focus on Ska music during the reception, and you could give out mix cd's as favors.

You could DIY fabric napkins that are black/white checkered, or even find paper napkins in that pattern. I just wouldn't do too much in that pattern, it might look overwelming. Do you just want the colors black and white?
