Italian Themed Dinner Party
Over at Coco Kelley, they have laid out a beautiful simple yet elegant Italian dinner party.
Simple items like a ticking striped tablecloth, tomato napkins, and a wooden spoon make up this table.
Elegant calligraphy with a simple Italian word on each white dinner plate keeps this meal classy.
Something about the look of this table takes me back to the Hygge Table we set for Thanksgiving a while back.
This Vivacious Life
Chandice set her Italian party decorations with a rustic look.
Natural wooden round chargers with a menu and roll with a sprig of rosemary give off that look. As well as the nice touch of Italy with a bubbly Limonata.
A mini baguette nuzzled in a precious paper bag with a checked ribbon is what Jessica sat at each guest place setting. It allows your taste buds to anticipate the meals that are to come.
She also made sure each guest went home with a sweet little goodie in that adorable little cardboard box.
What a great idea!

Italians use bread as a utensil at their meals. Either to help food onto their fork or to sop up the savory sauce on the plate.
Using bread is the reason that you often see bread awaiting company on their plates of an as Italian party decorations.

Pave The Runway
Sheera set up the table for an Italian dinner. She collected tassels from cabinetry to use as napkin holders. Lemons and the leaves from their tree make for a great table runner.
Sit and join us for a delicious meal is what these Italian themed party decorations says.
Olga & Ofelia Living
What you see here is an elegant place setting by Olga and Ofelia, but what you can't see is the Italian music playing in the background to help set the atmosphere for this Italian themed dinner party.
A great touch to the menu is each course title spelled out in Italian.
Calligraphy by Brooke & Simo's Bread & Catering
Something that Simo's does right when setting up their table for this large dinner party is making sure that each guest has the same exciting centerpiece.
The twinkling lights in the cork topped vases give off a romantic touch to the table.
Love that they put the guests first when creating these Italian themed party decorations.

When Chris was setting up her Italian themed dinner party, she added a vintage touch that we adore. A bruschetta bar on an antique ironing board.
