Entertaining | Greek Themed Dinner Party

Greek themed dinner party & recipes

Food and food themes are some of my favorite starting points for entertaining. Cinco de Mayo is all about Mexican dishes, a pizza party gives you reason to try new variations, an Asian theme takes you to the Orient, and a chili cook-off with a chili bar is a great way to get friends involved in the fun. Whenever I host a dinner party I can spend weeks pouring over recipes to put together the perfect combination of flavors, textures, and colors.

This Greek themed dinner party is all about the flavors of the Mediterranean.ย  I incorporate a modern twist on traditional favorites like spanakopita and baklava, and I used classic ingredients like olives, lamb, feta, nuts, and artichokes to round out the menu {get the Greek burger recipe here & Greek style couscous here}. The table setting is inspired by the blue waters surrounding Greece, and the white stucco walls of it’s architectural landscape.ย  Check out these photo highlights and then get more details in my article for Celebrations here.

    I love your detailing on this project. The tablescape is beautiful and the food looks fabulous! Thanks for another wonderful design project!

  2. What a wonderful party and just love all of the attention to detail. I have loved perusing your beautiful blog this morning and am thrilled to be your newest follower!!

  3. Chris,

    The attention to detail that you give once again shines through. Oh my gosh, that menu and those baklava cups – Y.U.M.! I really like how you simplified each dish and yet kept the authentic feeling.

    This dinner could easily be on any Friday night but can also lend itself to a fraternity or sorority dinner. Or how about a reunion dinner with college friends?

    I’m with you, I love theme parties. They are so much fun and offer an array of menu and decorating ideas.

    Thank you for sharing.

    What a fun theme I love Greek food. I can never say any of the names correctly, but the food is amazing. The table setting was colorful and the little pillars were so cute on the table.

    Hi Chris,

    This idea is exactly what I’m looking for, for my greek themed dinner party with 16 ladies for our annual family weekend away. I was hoping you could please provide me with a template for the labels and menu or advise where I could find it!
    Thanks :-)
