Perfect Candles for a Toga Party

The More Candles the Better!

Low lights and candlelight can transform an ordinary room into a chic and festive party venue.   There is no such thing as too much twinkle at any party so the more candles, tea-lights and votives, the better.

Toga Costumes

Toga Party Costumes

We’re not sure if costumes qualify as party decor or as entertainment, but in either case, for this theme we highly recommend making your Ides of March party a costume party!

The Classic Toga

Rather than a sheet, it is best to go to a fabric store and buy real fabric — solid white is traditional, but any color, any pattern will work if you just want to have fun with the whole toga concept and want to stand out from the crowd. Generally, fabric is less expensive than sheets and is a better shape for wrapping around your body. TogaBoy suggests buying 4-6 yards of fabric.

Beyond a sheet …

We’ve included both ancient Greek and Roman costumes — although not entirely authentic, by including both, you have more options.

Not Quite a Costume

Not so into the toga thing?  How about one of these t-shirt designs?  They come in a variety of styles and colors.  If you happen to be on a college campus and want to generate excitement for your party, consider shooting t-shirts into a crowded quad or cafeteria like they do at ballgames.

Food and Drink for your Toga Party

Signature Cocktails

Apricot Bellini

Apricot Bellini

1 ounce apricot nectar (30 ml)

Prosecco, to taste

Cocktail

Roman Holiday

Ingredients:
– 2 oz Aperol (Italian light spirit)
– 1 oz Gin
– 3 oz Club Soda
– Splash of fresh orange juice
Garnish: Orange slice

Mix Aperol, gin and orange juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain the mixture into a highball glass and top with club soda. Garnish with orange slice and serve.

Delectable Delights

Food is where the Italian influence can really shine. For a festive atmosphere, keep the food delicious, simple and bite-sized.   The Food Network suggests laying out easy-to-prepare foods such as bowls of olives and plates of crudités. Arrange crusty Italian bread, tapenade (olive spread), pesto and quality Italian salami on a large wooden cutting board and let your guests help themselves. Another option is a pizza station where your guests can create their own personalized pizzas
