Ideas for an Argentina Themed Party

Argentinians' love of good quality beef and red wine is almost as famous as their love of football. While the rugby team may not boast as many internationally-known household names among its players as the football team, the rugby players have enjoyed considerable success and are undoubtedly South America's most successful nation.

When the national team are playing, everything is decked out in sky blue and white, and barbecues (or asados) will be fired up on every street corner. To set the tone, a little Argentine tango music (see links below) wouldn't go amiss.

Argentina Party Decorations

  • Decorate yourself and your room with Argentina shirts, flags and scarves. There are a few options on the right of this page, or you could try:
  • If you're serving food, search for sky blue and white table covers, napkins, plates, cups and cutlery on our General Party Decorations Page

  • As for colour schemes, in addition to the above ideas, anything else you can find in sky blue and white will help create the right atmosphere

Food for an Argentinian Party

If you're a vegetarian, then much of the Argentine cuisine is not for you. Beef has been universally popular in Argentina since its introduction by the Spanish over 500 years ago, and continues to be one of the most frequently served foodstuffs, especially grilled or barbecued.
There is a strong European/mediterranean influence on much of the Argentinian cooking. As well as beef, chicken, lamb, pork and offal are all popular, and the use of fresh locally grown produce is still preferred. Argentine cooking is, on the whole, less spicy than that of many other South American countries, with sweet peppers, tomatoes, herbs and onions being widely used as flavourings rather than chillies. The European influence is evidenced in the popularity of foods such as Italian Pasta, French style bread and seasonings such as parsley, fresh oregano, paprika, thyme and bay leaves.

Drink for an Argentinian Party

Argentinians are justifiably proud of their wine, and export some excellent reds. Quilmes is the most popular lager-style beer, and rightly so! It is available through various internet retailers, and well worth seeking out. We managed to find a source for Quilmes Argentinian Lager at Amazon.com .
