Some of the favorite college parties were toga parties. It is easy to have go toga, just supply plenty of food and drink, and have everyone wear a toga.

Even people who normally aren't excited about a costume party seem to get excited about the prospect of a toga theme party!

Plan to give out prizes at the party to make it more interesting. Some ideas include:

  • Best Toga
  • Most Authentic
  • Best Accessories
  • You can also have a trivia quiz about Roman customs or play the the movie Animal House  (Amazon Affiliate Link) or play a fun game of "bobbing for olives". Some fun "theme" food choices would be Italian type finger-foods, grapes and olives. Of course you can always just go with chips and beer too. Pretty much anything goes with this party!

  • Going beyond the Frat House Party Idea

    The toga is similar to garments worn by the Greeks, but the true toga was a Roman invention. Incorporate some of these great ancient civilizations into your party.

    • If your guests will be up for something active, incorporate some ancient games like tug of war, arm wrestling and capture the flag
    • Play a trivia game using Roman or Greek Mythology
    • Romans were known for drinking wine, so include a wine tasting
    • Include Ancient Rome as a stop in an Around the World Party
  • Use decorations such as columns, party prop statues and backdrops that are Greek or Roman from Shindigz

    How to Make a Toga for your Toga Party

    A toga isn't just limited to a toga party. It also makes a great instant Halloween costume (I've done it myself, deciding at the last minute what I might want to do).

    If you need help with ideas for how to make a toga, here are some steps:

    Many people think that using bed sheets will work for a toga, but actually, you'll be doing better to buy a cheap piece of fabric that is 4 to 6 yards long. Depending on the style of toga you are going for, bed sheets may not be big enough. Also, there are lots of fun fabric design choices you could pick if you go to the fabric store.

    Wrap the fabric around your chest at least once and pin. It should hang between your knees and the floor. (Men may want to just drape it around their waist). Throw the rest over your shoulder and pin again.

    Add a  Laurel Leaf Wreath Headpiece for your head and some gold jewelry and...viola! It doesn't need to be perfect, and everyone's will probably come out a little differently. It is the fun that counts.

    Shop for a toga instead.
