Our Italian dinner party to celebrate the birthday of our Pass the Party matriarch, Cathy. She has a love of travel, music and wine. This theme encompassed it all!
When I think 'Italian', I think red and white tablecloths, fresh herbs, candlelight and lots of WINE. Someone once told me you eat with your eyes. That's the experience we want to create every time we come together to celebrate.
Fresh herbs are an inexpensive way to add life to your tablescape, particularly if a floral arrangement is out of your budget. Utilise things from around the house. Candles, produce such as lemons or tomatoes from your garden, still on the vine. A beautifully dressed table is just as important as the food at any good dinner party.
Entree: Caprese lasagna with rocket
Main: Pasta two ways
Erin put together an Italian playlist on Spotify to set the mood. It's not an Italian dinner party without some Dean Martin. Music is a great way to give your dinner party theme an authentic touch.
Buon compleanno Cathy
