Summertime Gelato Party

Table Set for A Gelato Party

The warm Summertime air is a perfect excuse to entertain! If you are looking to have friends and family over but want to go beyond the traditional 4th of July BBQ, a gelato party is the way to go! In a color palette of red, white, and blue, our team has designed the perfect handmade Italian, table setting for your friends to gather and put a new twist on the ice cream social.

Start your table design with a simple red burlap or linen tablecloth. This color makes a beautifully bold base for all your ceramics. In this tablescape, we have chosen items from our Porto VenerePOP Check,  POP Circle, POP Line, Rosso, Tivoli Solids, and Via Veneto collections. These collections feature similar color schemes, making them so easy to mix and match to bring your table to life. 

The next step is to layer! We stacked our Porto Venere Charger with a Rosso Salad Plate and topped it with a POP Circle Fruit Bowl. You could choose to layer pieces from these collections differently, depending on your taste.

Now let the fun begin! Guests will be served their favorite gelato and for an extra dose of Italy, a cannoli! A variety of delicious toppings are added to the table in Rosso Appetizer Dishes allowing each guest to prepare their treat in their own way!

So as you think about your Independence Day gathering, a neighborhood BBQ, or perhaps a child's birthday party, consider an Italian-themed gelato party!
