Sports Theme Parties
Sports parties are the most popular theme parties of all. One reason is because of Super Bowl Sunday. Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest day of food consumption after Thanksgiving. With that in mind, you can tell sports parties are not only sporting events but food events as well. Big Parties take place all over to celebrate all types of sporting events. Everything from grilling outside to tailgating. Sports parties are not limited to game day bashes. Nope! Birthday parties with a sporty theme comes in second.

Color Themes  
Color theme parties base their whole party around a color. For example: The Color Green - you would ask all your guest to wear the color green or bring something green. The drinks served would be green colored alcoholic drinks with green lime slices in the drinks or a non-alcoholic drinks like green colaid. Green foods would be served like: garden salads, broccoli, green beans, green soup (like split pea soup), chicken covered in green gravy (white gravy with green food coloring), and we can't leave out green desserts like: green cookies with green sprinckles, green jello, green cakes with green icing (Patachio Cake is popular). Serving dishes would be shades of green.  A great party prize would be a beautiful green plant. Garden Parties love to host "Green Parties" all the time and St. Patrick's Day is known as a green party day as well. National Pink Day is popular for pink parties.

Did You Know "All Red Parties" are celebrated in US & Canda all throughout February? Not only does red represent Valentine's Day but it also represents Saint Valentines Day Massacre, National Wear
Red Day and a few others. National Wear Red Day is a day in February when many people wear red to show their support for the awareness of heart disease.

Food Themes
Food Theme parties are based on a certain type of food. For example: A Crawfish Party - "A crayfish party is a traditional summertime eating and drinking celebration in the Nordic countries." "The tradition originated in Sweden, where a crayfish party is called a kräftskiva." "The tradition has also been spread to Finland by the Swedish-speaking population of that country." Crayfish parties are generally held during August. "The crayfish are boiled in salt water and seasoned with fresh dill then served cold and eaten with the fingers. Bread, mushroom pies, strong Västerbotten cheese, salads, and other dishes are served buffet-style." The most popular food parties have to be "chocolate parties" where everything served is made with chocolate or cocoa. Followed by "Chicken wing parties" and "Tomato To-mot-toe parties" which is based on the love of tomatoes. Foods like pizza, lasagna & tomato salads are popular along with tomato toss games where you try to NOT bust the tomato.

Fruit Themes
For example: "Lemons" - you would ask all your guest to wear the color yellow or come in lemon costumes. The food served would be lemon flavored alcoholic drinks with lemon slices in the drinks or non-alcoholic drinks like lemonade. Lemon cake, lemon meringue pie or lemon squares would be a few dessert ideas. Serving dishes would be shades of yellow and a large lemon center piece on the table would be the typical centerpiece. If you know any lemon games then this would be the time to play them too. A great party prize would be a real lemon plant. Parties set on National Lemon Holidays are usually hosted with the yellow theme.

Garden Parties
A garden party is a social gathering with food provided, in the open in a park or a garden. "Unlike a picnic party or barbecue party, which are informal, a garden party can be a prestigious event." For example, invitations to parties of the British Sovereign, held at Buckingham Palace Gardens, are a great honour, and are very rare except for those in traditionally invited high offices." Many games are traditionally played at garden parties. "In Champs Elysees, Paris, there is an annual Garden Party on 14 July on the occasion of Bastille Day." Garden parties are very popular with gardening groups and clubs. And with anybody who has a great garden to show off! Food theme parties can go hand in hand with garden parties too.

birthdays all year round but especially popular for National Taco Day and Cino de Mayo.
"In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in
Mexico. The date is perhaps best recognized in the United States as a date to
celebrate the culture and experiences of Americans of Mexican ancestry, much as
St. Patrick's Day, Oktoberfest, and the Chinese New Year are used to celebrate those
of Irish, German, and Chinese ancestry respectively."

Mad Hatter Party   can be molded for children, teenagers or adults
A Mad Hatter Party is a party based on weird, wild & wacky hats. Every guest
has to attend wearing a hat. (baseball hats do not apply) Most parties are tea parties
for adults, just like the Alice in Wonderland story. Mad Hatter parties can also be
adapted for childrens birthdays as well. Don't forget to take pictures of everyone in their
crazy hats. It makes for some great facebook postings.
