    Once you have made a list of guests, you need to buy invitation cards having a Roman style. You might not be able to find these cards so you will probably have to place an order weeks before the event. A Roman scroll is a perfect invitation in which you need to clearly state that wearing togas is mandatory.

    Planning your decorations is the next step. You need to keep in the mind the Greek period and set some ivy vines and greenery around the entrance. You will also need to make pillars which were the norm back in the day. Since erecting concrete pillars will be nearly impossible, you can glue two pieces of poster board together for this purpose which will make them appear just like the pillars during that period. After rolling them into a wide pipe shape, glue a white paper plate and paint vertical lines and place some fake grapes on them.

    Now you need to prepare your toga as this is without a doubt the most important element of the party. You can prepare it by yourself without having to waste time and money buying it from somewhere. All you have to do is acquire almost four yards of cloth of any colour. Now wrap it around your waist a few times and then pin the rest of the cloth on either shoulder with the help of safety pins.
