Have an appetizer at one neighbors, dinner at another neighbor's and then a different house for dessert.

Pretty straightforward kind of party
Order some live lobsters from Maine - this one is a little pricy - either keep the party small or ask guests to pay their share
Longest Day of the Year Party

This one involves some pineapples and some loud shirts. There will be bonus points for figuring out how to roast a pig. Get some Hawaiian music and tiki torches.
Buy a bunch of Mardi Gras beads at the costume store and get people to wear loud clothes. Play some good blues music and serve Gumbo.
Margaritas and...well need I say more? Just make sure them is some Caribbean or Jimmy Buffet Music. Serve Caribbean food.
This one is more for the kids but hey whatever floats your boat.
Afternoon Tea Party
Serve chicken and play rock music. Everyone should be able to speak pirate.
Order a bunch of pizza...duh. But if you can add a sporting activity like touch football or a baseball game before the pizza it could be a home run.
If you have one great Party on - you probably have been doing that for years. If you don’t you can beg a friend who does have one to let you use it for the day.
Have everybody bring over a pasta dish...supply salad and garlic bread. Get some dean martin music and a lot of candlesSt. Patrick’s Day
Pretty Basic - Green beer and green clothes. Watch out for the leprechauns.
Well maybe you have never heard of this dude but he is the Norse God of Snow. For skiers it is tradition to make offerings and pray to him for hopes of a great ski season. Offerings are usually old skis and thrown onto a bonfire. Drink Schnopp's and wear viking horns on your head.
Wine and Cheese
Get some wine and cheese and eat, drink and be merry.
Kind of like a real tailgate party but there is no actual game. Just call it a tailgate party for the fun of it. Do all the things that you would do for a tailgate party but do them in your backyard. If there is a game that is just a bonus.
Whether it is the Superbowl, the World Series or the Stanley Cup. It just an excuse to party - really.
Get at least two people with cameras. Go to a destination and take as many photos as you possibly can. Make a slide show when you get home.
