A far from home, Tuscany-themed event
There is something immediately romantic about anything Italian. Nothing could be more picturesque than Tuscany. For your next party, plan a stay-cation trip to Tuscany and give your guests the feeling that they are far from home.
With 4 simple tips, you can turn your backyard into a Tuscan villa.
1. Choose simple basic table linens. Neutrals work best! Don’t feel too plain choosing a simple white table cloth. The idea of the romantic Tuscan feel is that an amazing meal with great company was literally thrown together. “Any old” table cloth was taken probably right off the clothes line and draped over the semi-rusted terrace table in the back of the house. You can add color with your re-used and re-purposed decor, and a bright pop with flowers.
2. Choose tableware reminiscent of earthenware, or pottery pieces combined to create a natural rural feel. Colors should be warm and textures should be rustic. Look for pieces of dinnerware with an uneven finish, unpolished and with a low glaze on the earthenware or pottery. Bright white would be too stark.
3. Plan a simple menu. Serve a simplified menu, and don’t forget the fresh bread and olive oil. Don’t worry about getting too fancy in your meal prep. A thick stew and side of fresh veggies can serve a lot of people and keeps with your theme – that you literally just threw it all together. It’s quite possible you could have cooked up the variety of veggies fresh from your garden and thrown in some chickpeas and potatoes.
4. Decorate with re-purposed bottles and vases. Use candles and flowers that may grow wild. Opt for a daisy or geranium. Choose flowers that could literally have just been cut from your backyard garden and arrange them loosely in a repurposed wine bottle, colored glass vase, or other such used piece.
