Need ideas to throw a party?

Okay, let's see. It's Labor Day weekend, kids are heading back to school and we're nearing the end of the summer. I think it's time to squeeze in one last party--what do you think? If you're not sure what kind of party you should hold, look no further. 87 Ways to Throw a Killer Party by Melissa Daly has all the info you need to plan that perfect party!

Just as the title states, there are 87 party themes, ranging from seasonal, sports, pop-culture, around-the-world, and more. How about a meteor shower viewing party or a top chef cook-off or even an off-to-college goodbye party? If you're sending somebody off to school, some ideas are to bring photo albums from elementary school, junior high and high school for guests to flip through. You can make yearbook frames, read senior wills, and make a send-off circle.

The ideas in this book are endless and if you can't find the right party to hold, you're definitely not in party mode. Now, get planning!

Disclosure: Some of the books I review are received from publishers , PR agencies, and authors, but it does not sway my opinion of the book.


  1. I always love a party Lori! Is there a book themed party in this book?
