Place Setting Design Idea
But here are a few photos of what I came up with on this Italian dinner party decor.
Now stack a few white plates so that the Buon Appetito twine wrapped dinner roll stands out.
Set the plates on a brand new red and white dish towel and add a beautiful wine glass and silverware.

Well, here you have an easy idea for an Italian dinner party theme, so now I want to give you some more ideas.
When my girls were growing up, we used to have theme dinner nights. Sometimes it would be pioneer night, and we would eat by oil lanterns and pretend we lived in a time with no electricity.
Thankful we were pretending and had AC because living here in Florida can be toasty. Haha!
Anyways, you can have an Italian themed family dinner night. You can even get your kids involved in setting the table and making the place setting decorations.
Other ideas are larger events like church, office gatherings and such.
And of course, invite some friends or family over to a fun Tuscan dinner.
I hope these ideas will inspire you to create a beautiful Italian table soon.
