Roman Empire Party Ideas
- Toga party – One of the easiest party types, toga parties were made infamous by the John Belushi movie, Animal House. To create a toga, use a piece of white fabric or buy a ready-made one from Costume Box. See our page on Toga parties.
- Gladiator party – Think of movies like Gladiator and the TV series Rome. Soldiers and gladiators can party alongside their military leaders like Julius Caesar and Marc Antony.
- Roman banquet – This involves eating several courses of rich and exotic foods – think spicy dishes, roasts, and anything unusual. And lots of grapes!
- Roman decor – Decorate with vines, white partyware, columns and pillars, and statues.
- Chariot races – Chariots can be made out of cardboard and decorated with lots of red and gold.
