Host an Italian banquet - Set the Scene

Host an Italian banquet - Set the Scene

Attention Italianistas and Italianistos! Impress guests with an autentico Italian-inspired degustation. Essteele has tips to help you the scene and satisfy the palate. Don't blame us if no one wants to go home, though. Too pretty, too delicious, too much fun!

We have 2 serving suggestions for you. Either decorate in the upscale Milanese style of 'the north' withstarched white linen, crystal decanters,lots ofterracotta, afresco muralon the wall if you're really keen and thethree tenorsplaying in the background. 

Orput everyone at ease with southern-style peasant chic: fun and festive red checked tablecloths, straw Chianti bottles as candle-holders, copper-based pots steaming on the table, baskets of bread and tumblers for wine. Borrow from modern trattorias and serve your antipasto on planks of wood balanced on Italian tinned tomatoes, or try a puzzle board for a modern approach. Easy access for all and storage space underneath. On the stereo? Rat Pack classics. Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, what's not to love.

Buon appetito!
