Maggie's Party Plans

Here is an updated list of the parties that my husband and I have hosted thus far. Also listed are the themes we are planning to do in the next few months. This evening, Jeff and I added up the couples left in our ward to invite and we are at 42 couples still to invite. (So far we have had 49 couples in our home for our parties.) So we have about 4 more parties to go... which puts us ending the whole rotation in May. Of course, we are not going to stop once we have had everyone over. We will start over and mix the guests up again and have fun new themes. If any of you have a fun idea for a theme.. please leave it in the comments.

August- Asian Themed Dinner Party
September- Do you Fondue? 70's party
October- Mystery Night (undercover detectives solving the case- RC Farms Defunct Swine)
November- Indoor Wienie Roast
December-Soup Social (soup in bread bowls)
January- Chinese New Year Dinner (2009 year of the Ox)
February- Valentine Dinner
March- March Madness Tailgate party
April- ????
May- Cinco de Mayo Mexican Fiesta
June- My Dream Vacation Dinner
July- Christmas in July dinner

Other ideas:

  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Italian Dinner/Tuscany Style or Trattoria
  • Game night with group games and food!
  • Come As You Were in High School (complete with cafeteria food)
  • Fall Camp out (recreate the woods indoors-fake trees, fake fire, camp food, cricket sounds)
  • Winter Picnic- come with picnic blanket, sunglasses, and a summer picnic dish to share
  • New York New Years Eve party- party till 9 and have an appetizer bar
  • Chuck wagon/cattle drive dinner
  • The First Thanksgiving (come as Pilgrim or Indian for noon meat)
  • Scotland Yard- mystery dinner
  • Ladies 1950's Apron dinner
  • Night in Hollywood- walk down the red carpet, dress like a star, eat elegant foods
  • Favorite Soup Night- everyone brings in a crock pot some of their favorite soup to share
