Ideas for a Wales Party

However well the Welsh National Football team may be doing at the moment, football will always be second in Wales to rugby. For a relatively small nation population-wise, the Welsh have always produced exceptionally strong rugby teams, and dominated the sport - in the northern hemisphere at least - in the early 20th century and again in the 1970s - 80s.

Wales Party Decorations

  • Decorate yourself and your room with Welsh 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 red, white and green table covers, napkins, plates, cups and cutlery on our General Party Decorations Page
  • For bunting, flags, balloons and more Welsh Party Decorations Ideas, visit our European Flags & Decorations Page
  • As for colour schemes, in addition to the above ideas, anything else you can find in red, green and white will help create the right atmosphere, or take some inspiration from how the people of Wales celebrate their rugby victories, or St David's Day (1st March). In addition to having everything decorated in red (with green and white as secondary colours) giant inflatable dragons, daffodils and leeks (Welsh national emblems) are a must

Food for a Welsh Themed Party

Wales is famous for its lamb production, but the "traditional" Welsh diet centered around home-grown vegetables (potatoes, cabbage and of course leeks), fish and seafood, and bacon and pork. Lamb was really only served on special occasions, although now is much more widely enjoyed. Local cheeses, including Caerphilly and various sheeps and goats cheeses, have an excellent reputation and are enjoyed in dishes such as Welsh Rarebit.

Traditional Welsh dishes such as laverbread (which isn't a type of bread at all), cawl (a traditional one-pot soup or stew) and Welsh cakes are all well worth trying!

Try some of these next time you are throwing a Welsh rugby party:

Drink for a Welsh Themed Party

Due to its climate, Wales does not have a great history of wine production. As a result, beer is much more widely drunk - the best known local brand is probably Brains - along with local cider. Although wine from grapes is not widely produced, there is a history dating back at least 1,400 years of producing mead, a wine-like drink made from honey, but your best bet is probably to order a Welsh Beer selection box via Amazon .
