Help with Colors PLEASE!!!!!

okay so I've finalized my colors and they're black, white, and yellow. Now i'm trying to figure out how to incorporate them into the reception. The BM dresses are yellow and the GM are wearing black. At first I wanted to do alternating back and white table cloths with alternating black and white chair covers w/sash. The centerpieces will be yellow flowers but now I'm thinking I want to include more yellow and I's unsure how to do so. I came across the inspiration below.

If you guys can provide and suggestions I'd appreciate it. FI is sold on having both black and yellow.

TIA ladies!!

    You could do lemons as centerpieces with water, since  your wedding is in the summer.

    Get a cylinder vase, put black pebbles at the bottom and the lemons on top or just lemons in the vase and if you are doing table numbers/names, those could be black.

    Here's a link with lots of images on the centerpieces, so you can get an idea of what they look like.

    Linens, may depend on the time of day your wedding is, if at night maybe black with white napkins or alternate white and yellow napkins. 

    "At first I wanted to do alternating back and white table cloths with alternating black and white chair covers"  This could work too, maybe the sash could be yellow.

    I like the option that is in the picture you posted too.
