Before organizing any theme party, it is always helpful to do a little background verification about the culture and kind of people that belong to that place. Italian themed party must adhere to Italian culture. Italian people love life, to talk, laugh and joke, generally over a large meal and wine. They’re also very warm with complete strangers. You can send invitations using Italian flag in it. You can hang Italy map in the party. You can also hang little Italian sayings around the place. You can also decorate different corners with Italian icons like Leaning Tower of Pisa.
The color schemes of the Italian themed party must be as per the colors from Italy like green, orange and white. Make sure that everything from table covers, ornaments, decorative items are in these colors. You can decorate center of the table with fresh fruits. You can also place candles on top of the wine bottles. Remember to cover the table with Italian colored table cloth. If you are hosting the party outside then you can place Italian banners all around the place.
The essence of Italian themed party is good food: Wine, Pastas, lasagna and Pizzas etc… Pastas can be made in different varieties. The ideal order of the food may go like: antipasti (aka appetizers), cold cuts and Italian cheeses; Prime piatti (first main), pasta or soup, or dish like lasagna; Second piatti (second main), typically a meat dish; Then dessert, something like fruit, tiramisu, pastries. Wine makes an important part of the Italian cuisine. Wine bottles can be kept nicely in a bucket on a nice table with wine glasses. This will also serve as a decorative corner. You can also add different games in the party to pepper it up e.g. mimic the famous Italian personalities from past; or a quiz about different inventors of famous brands from Italy.
