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! There's no limit to the creative ideas you can have for themed dinner nights.
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. What better way to turn everyday meals into special occasions. Your friends and family members will enjoy quality time with good food and great place settings at your Italian themed table. They'll think they were transported to Tuscany Italy.
