No need to spend hundreds of dollars on painting/wine drinking classes. Buy a few canvases and a couple bottles of wine and invite your friends over for the night.




Puppy party

This will 100% be my next party because puppy love is the best love. Tell all of your friends to bring over their pooches. Not only will you get to have some fun but your dog will love it too! Best keep it outside though to avoid any "accidents".

What's better than a cookie? Ten cookies. Stock up on milk and ask your friends to each make their favorite cookie and bring it with them when they come!


A cocktail per room

Perfect for a housewarming party or if you just did some pretty rad re-decorating that you want to show off. Make a bunch of cocktails, leave one in each room of your house, and encourage your guests to try each one. By the time they've made the tour, it will be quite the party.


Red, red, red

Create a romantic atmosphere with red lighting, red flowers, red food, red table cloths, and red drinks. Red is the new black tie.


Camping party

You don't have to go far to go camping. Set up some tents and sleeping bags, make a s'mores bar, and cook up a big pot of hot chocolate and enjoy the great outdoors.


Seven deadly sins

Works for a causal Halloween party or a sophisticated dinner. Some ideas include: a 7 course meal with one sin per course, Seven playing in the background, sinful decorations in seven different rooms, or (s)inspired cocktails. Find more ideas here.


Prom throwback

This is great for everyone because A) you had a great time at prom and you want to relive it or, B) you had a horrible time and this is your chance to make it better. You know you've been itching for a reason to see if your old dress still fits anyway.


Princess (and prince) party

Okay, don't laugh. We did this every year when I was a kid instead of doing Super Bowl celebrations. My dad wasn't too pleased but we loved dressing up, eating pink cake, and watching The Princess Diaries. You're never too old to pretend to be a princess.

Midnight breakfast

via HANG UP THE HEELS

Breakfast for dinner and a collection of your favorite people!? Add in some mimosas and you've got yourself a party. Possible next year's New Year's Eve?


BYOT (Bring Your Own Tea)

via Bang good

via Bang good

Who needs booze when you have tea? Tell your guests to bring their own mug and own type of tea and spend the night munching on scones and trying all of your friends' teas. Yeah, it's more tame than BYOB but think of you the hangover you'll miss out on and the herbal wonder you will do for your body!


Kid's party

via The Kids Club

via The Kids Club

We may not be little kids anymore but that doesn't mean we have to act like adults all the time. Swap out the fancy wine and gourmet cheese for cheap pizza, coke, cake from the local superstore, laser tag, arcades, bowling alleys, or even a bouncy castle, and decorate with streamers, party hats, and confetti.


Bring a bottle and a stranger.

This one is on the opposite end of the spectrum from BYOT (bring your own tea). Only two rules: bring a bottle of liquor or wine and someone who you don't know. Try to keep the sketchiness to a minimum and you never know the interesting people you might meet!
