When people think of Toga themed parties, they usually think of college parties with a lot of drinking, but a Toga party is so much more. We’ll teach you all you need to know about throwing an incredible Toga-themed party in today’s post!
Toga Themed Party Ideas
A costume party centered on Roman and Greek mythology is known as a Toga themed party. A toga is a simple costume that may be readily created out of a white bed sheet or a cheap piece of fabric.
Toga-themed parties are popular among college fraternity parties, but they can also be done in a more elegant manner. It’s a party with plenty of drinking (just like they did in ancient times), plenty of food, and some entertaining party games. Toga is one of the oldest party themes, as well as one of the most popular among partygoers.
The most crucial aspect of a Toga party is the dress code…if you don’t wear a toga, you won’t be allowed to attend. What truly happens at a Toga party now that everyone is dressed up in their Togas and ivy headdresses? A Toga-themed party is for you if you enjoy sipping wine, eating grapes, and playing games.
Prepare for some Greco-Roman-inspired drinking games and contests that will take you on a legendary voyage of what the Romans and Greeks were up to all those years ago. Learn more about these games in this article.
Toga party decorations will transform your party room into an Ancient Greek-Roman paradise. It’s crucial to give your guests the impression that they’re in ancient Greece, and don’t worry; with a little imagination, you can transform your home into ancient Greece on a budget.
Gold and white, as well as purple, are the primary colors used in Toga decorations. Purple was once associated with royalty and riches, and it will add the needed splash of color to your party venue. You can now start draping sheets over any chairs, hanging sheets on the walls, and laying sheets on the floor after you’ve chosen your colors.
Make a lush corner and throw cushions and pillows around to create an appealing (and comfy) location for visitors to sit. The next step is to add some greenery to the space, such as a faux ivy vine, grapes on the tables, and potted plants.
Place white and gold candles or oil lamps throughout the space. Hang some string lights indoors and outdoors on trees and throughout the yard to give the space a truly “magical” vibe. If you want to add more extravagant Roman and Greek architecture, try internet party vendors or your local home decor store.
The music during your Toga party is entirely up to you and your guests’ preferences. Older folks may like soothing classical music playing in the background, but younger people and college students are more likely to choose party music. You may always look for music with Greek or Roman themes, or even tunes that involve the harp, to give your party an old feel.
When planning a Toga party, start with the perfect Toga party invitation. You may buy fantastic Toga-themed invitations or make your own if you want to do it yourself. Make sure to utilize rich colors, especially gold, and a Greek matching font type, such as Microsoft Word’s “Herculanum.”
Another fantastic idea is to make the invitations in the shape of a scroll and then tie them together with a ribbon for added effect. If you want to dig deeper into the tales of ancient Greece and Rome, you can tailor the wording of your invitation to fit the style of the event.

Party Games & Activities
Although drinking contests are entertaining on their own, organizing some Toga party games and entertainment for your guests can take your party to a new level. Here are a few ideas below for you to consider.
Who am I?
This is a classic game where you write the name of a character (in this case, Greek or Roman) and stick it to the forehead of the contestant. Now they have to go around the room asking “yes or no” questions in order to find out who they are, for example, “Am I a Greek god?” or “Am I a Gladiator?”
Another classic game! You can divide the guests into teams and ask them questions about ancient Greece and Rome and don’t forget about the prizes!
You can also plan some entertainment for your guests using their own costumes. For example you could have a dramatic battle between two guests dressed as gladiators, have a special entrance for guests dressed as gods and goddess, tossing rose petals at their feet or you could have an emperor making a big announcement. So be creative and use what you have available.
If you feel like more “physical” games, you can play Statue, where the guests pose as Greek or Romans statues and the winner is the one who lasts the longest without moving.
Party Food and Drink Ideas
The food and drinks served during a toga party are entirely dependent on the formality of the occasion. Appetizers and finger foods are frequently served during Toga parties. The other alternative is to serve Greek cuisine.
There are plenty of fruits, particularly grapes and pears. Platters of cheese and vegetables are popular, and wonderful huge loaves of circular bread with plenty of nuts, dates, figs, and olives can also be a nice addition to the meal.
If you want to be a bit more sophisticated, create pita bread sandwiches, or if you want to go all out, serve roasted lamb, baklava, a Greek pie, or a classic Greek salad.
It’s simple to make drinks! The traditional beverage is wine, but you can provide a number of beverages, including non-alcoholic ones like grape juice. If you’re a college student, kegs of beer are the way to go.
