Okay, let’s get straight to the elephant in the room. National Lasagna Day, we’ve got to be joking right! Well, actually no, we are not. July 29th 2014 has been officially designated as National Lasagna Day and the dish of flat pasta sheets inter-mixed with layers of sauce and other ingredients will be celebrated worldwide by, er… lots of people.
In reality there is not a lot of evidence as to the origin and purpose of this special day; nor why the date was selected but it most probably started out simply as an advertising gimmick for an Italian restaurant or catering chain to promoting the eating of the dish, the recipe for which has been around since the 14th century, at least once a year.
What we like is the fact that the celebration of this global event provides a fantastic opportunity for another themed costume party and another that we can add to our party calendar.  And clearly the obvious theme is an Italian costume party which will allow you to either go all out for the pizzeria look or to grab your best frock to become one of the pretty people.  Within the summer of fun that we’re all experiencing it’s time to join the rest of the world and enjoy another party.
In other blogs we have discussed in depth the steps and processes involved in creating the perfect party and these ideas can easily be adapted to suit the Italian theme and all you’ll need is the spirit of Italy. In this blog we want to take a little time to look at some of the best costume ideas for your Italian fancy dress and accessories;

Italian Costume Ideas

Both the shirt and the shorts are nicely finished and include both the national badge and player number.
