A Taste of Tuscany - An Italian Fall Dinner Party

Tuesday, September 25, 2012C Riches

This lush, seasonal and vibrant dinner party was styled by the talented Katie from Petite Social, for Bird's Party Magazine Fall Issue

I simply loved the theme and ideas straight away, and started designing the printables taking inspiration from the colors, hues and scents of Fall - with an added Italian vibe off course! 

I come from an Italian background, and the patterned yellow paper I created for the printables really reminded me of when my nona used make fresh pasta and hang it on a broomstick to dry! :)

Katie created a stunning Italian inspired display, and the printables served as inspiration for the cookies and favor bag designs too! Check out all the details as told by Katie:

"Inspired by my Italian Deruta Serving pieces that I had acquired during a trip to Tuscany, I wanted to create a simple and intimate Italian-themed tablescape incorporating fresh garden fare of the season. Fall is my favorite season and I’m often drawn to rustic design and décor elements. Using rich hues of navy, red, green, and yellow from the Deruta designs, Bird's Party created the perfect set of printables for my dinner party idea.

I always love incorporating the current season’s fresh fare.  And with Fall as the inspiration, I was able to create a rustic, warm and intimate tablescape using bright red tomatoes, green herbs, and bright yellow

Instead of creating a traditional dessert table, I decided to create my own “Italian Market” stocked with pantry goodies for my guests to take home.  Homemade sauce, fresh bread, baskets of garden grown tomatoes, fresh herbs, and of course, a sweet treat.  Guests were offered a bag to fill take home goodies with."
