This Christmas Eve, invite friends and family to celebrate one of the most iconic Italian-American traditions around. The Feast of the Seven Fishes—also known as Festa dei Sette Pesci or La Vigilia—is a huge dinner that features multiple courses—seven of them!—of fish and seafood dishes, plus a classic Italian dessert to finish. Add some festive decor and good music and you’ll have an unforgettable evening. We’ll show you how.
Make it o-“fish”-al by sending unique invitations (like these) to your guests. A seaside theme will do the trick. Many designers have digital downloads available that you can quickly print yourself. Or get creative and design your own: Draw fish or use a fish stamp to decorate the outside of blank cards, then add the information inside.
