Decorating our dining room to look like an Italian restaurant was eay. I used our paper bunting that said Happy Birthday in Italian. I laid a check tablecloth from IKEA and then had so many fun accessories for table centrepieces: think ceramic crates and tins filled with herbs, chillies and tomato plants. I found at Migros little olive oil canisters and napkin dispensers and a few years ago at Depot a mini Vespa and Fiat props! The final touch were little custom place cards encouraging guests to Buon Appetito!
