N)
Naked Party:  A naked or nude party is a party where the participants are required to be nude. The parties have become associated with college campuses and with college-age people and have gained prominence in recent years, particularly after naked parties were organized at Brown and Yale. - Attendees of a naked party often report that they stop feeling awkward after just a few minutes, since everyone disrobed before entering the party, and since everyone's nudity was accepted, regardless of body type. According to reports, most naked college parties are sex free.[3] At Brown University, the nakedness is "more of an experiment in social interaction than a sexual experience."

A necktie social: is a euphemism for execution by hanging commonly used in the American Old West. Additionally, the term is also used literally, for a social event that involved selling donated neckties for charity.

Nude weddings are weddings that may include the couple, bridal party, and/or guests involved with the wedding being in the nude. Participants may choose this style of wedding because they are committed to their nudist lifestyle, or just an average couple that want a different and unusual kind of wedding. Though nude weddings have occurred throughout history, the first documented nude wedding was celebrated in Elysian Fields, California in 1942. Since this event, the number of nude weddings being performed has risen across the globe.

O)
Open House as a Party: In some places in the United States, this term seems to have changed its meaning somewhat to become a kind of party usually held to celebrate the completion of high school or college by the graduate. Open houses are often seen as one of the last times a graduating senior will see their friends in such a large gathering and is often celebrated with much enthusiasm. Friends and family of the graduate are often in attendance to celebrate their graduate's accomplishment as well as a wishing them a bright future.

Open houses are also usually an opportunity for the graduate to receive some money for their further education. Guests traditionally bring small gifts or cards with money or cheques, as a way of supporting the graduate's college tuition.

P)
A Pamper Party (or pampering party) is a party held primarily amongst females where each guest receives beauty and massage treatments and generally spend time indulging and pampering themselves. - Pamper parties are usually held in the hostess's home although they are sometimes offered by spas and salons. In the UK, a pamper party is a popular component of a hen party or hen weekend (this would be termed a bachelorette party in the US). - Pamper parties are usually considered to be a healthy indulgence so in addition to pampering treatments, the hostess usually provides healthy snacks, fruit juices and smoothies.

Pantry Party: A pantry party is another form of a house warming party. The idea is for all the guest to bring a food item to put in the pantry of the new house or apartment. Pantry parties are popular for young adults who are moving out for the first time. Pantry parties are also popular for second and 3rd marriages. People who have everything can benifit from pantry products.

Pajama party:  A Slumber party in which guests stay overnight at the venue, usually the hosts house. This type of party, is popular with teenagers and young people.

Party Bus Party: party bus (also known as a Party Ride, limo bus, limousine bus, party van, or luxury bus) is a large motor vehicle usually derived from a conventional bus or coach, but modified and designed to carry 10 or more people purely for recreational purposes generally involving some kind of celebration, such as a birthday or graduation. Party buses are usually driven by chauffeurs.

Party buses are primarily used for, although not limited to, weddings, proms and bachelor and bachelorette parties as well as round trips to casinos, nights on the town, personalized drop offs and pick ups at various bars and nightclubs, birthdays and city tours.

A Pie Supper is a social gathering where pies are auctioned to raise money, often for a local school or fire department. Pie suppers are predominantly associated with Ozark culture, and provided a major source of funding for many of the region's one-room schools in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

At a traditional pie supper, women and girls would provide homemade pies to be auctioned, sometimes in boxes decorated with ruffles or bows. Along with the pie itself, the highest bidder won the privilege of sharing the pie with its maker, whose identity was concealed or known only to a handful of people.

A play party is a social event in which people gather to sing and dance. Play parties began in the 1830s in the United States as a route around strict religious practices banning dancing and the playing of musical instruments. The areas most influenced by the practice were the Southern and Midwestern parts of the United States. Folk songs, many of European and English origin, were used as means to give the attendants choreographed movements for each phrase. No instruments were played at the events, as they were banned by the religious movements of the area. Singing and clapping were used to convey each song. Because dancing was banned, the movements took on the quality of children's games. Though the performance of play parties dwindled in the 1950s, music educators use them as ways to incorporate music and dance in their classrooms.

Some traditional examples of play-parties are: Skip to My Lou, Coffee Grows on White Oak Trees, Shoot the Buffalo, Buffalo Gals Won't You Come Out Tonight, B.I.N.G.O., Pop Goes the Weasel, Old Dan Tucker.

Political houseparty:  A party is hosted in a private home for the purpose of supporting a particular candidate, political party, or ballot measure, or to share information and opinions about an upcoming election. - Such events may be arranged as a dinner party, or with light or no refreshments in a more casual setting. In municipal politics, it is not uncommon for the candidate to appear at the event to explain his or her platform and to answer questions.

Pool party:  An event where the main action of the party involves swimming, and any other entertainment which can involve a swimming pool.

Pre-party:  A pre-party is a party that is held immediately before some event, such as a school dance, a wedding, a birthday party, or a bar mitzvah. These parties are usually of short duration and sometimes involve getting ready for the event (e.g., the guests may put on makeup or costumes). Guests usually leave at the same time and arrive at the event together.

Q)
Quiet Parties: (also known as Silent Parties and as Silent Dating parties) are nightclub events where participants socialize by writing notes to each other instead of speaking. The single rule at these events is "no talking."

The concept is believed to have been created in 2002 by artist Paul Rebhan and musician Tony Noe, two friends who visited several bars in New York City in an attempt to have a conversation, only to find they could not hear each other speak at any bar because of loud music and loud talking. This experience prompted them to invent the concept of 'silent nightclubbing'.

The first Quiet Party probably occurred in October, 2002 in New York City, and spread to other cities including San Francisco, Washington, Houston, Paris, London, Berlin, Barcelona and Beijing.

Quiet Parties arrived as one of the first of a new wave of unorthodox social activities of the early 2000s that merged elements of traditional party promotion with aspects of performance art. Others in this genre include Smart Mobs, Flash Mobs, and Cuddle Parties.
