Food:Serving drinks such as mai tais, piña coladas and daiquiris is an ideal option for a luau. For munchies, anything tropical will do. The typical food at a real Hawaiian luau is served buffet style and includes pork roast, salmon, stuffed tomatoes, chicken long rice and mashed sweet potatoes. Fruits are great too—especially pineapple. Our Island Pork Burgers and Fruit Kabobs with Two Sauces are sure to have guests dreaming of the islands.


Decor:Coastal decor is a great option when throwing this type of party. Lobster or shell-print napkins and paper plates are ideal. Blues, reds and oranges are the standard colors for a clambake. For an even more playful touch, set buckets, seashells and shovels on each table for a hint of the coast. Or, just cover your tables with classic red-and-white checkered tablecloths.

Activities:Most likely your party will be outdoors around the fire or grill, so choose a fun hands-on game like or croquet. You can invest in one of these inexpensive sets that comes with everything you need (and can be used again and again).

Food:The traditional clambake combines lobster, crab, clams, sausage, potatoes, clam chowder and corn on the cob cooked in a huge fire pit. If you don't have a backyard for this kind of cooking, try recipes that are within the theme, such as New England Seafood Chowder and Roast Sausages, Peppers and Potatoes.


Wine Tasting
Decor:Keep the colors elegant and classic—gold and deep reds and purples are perfect. Fill your serving table with wineglasses, festive napkins and plates. Elegant wine coolers are great for keeping white wines cool; invest in personalized wine stoppers for guests to take home as party favors.

Activities:Host your very own wine tasting and get guests involved by letting them judge the different types. Decide on a specific type of wine, a country or a region and have guests bring inexpensive bottles that go along with the theme. Cover the labels on each bottle, then have the guests rate each kind of wine. Calculate the scores and have a prize ready for the person who brought the top-ranking wine.

Food:For a wine tasting, a few hors d'oeurves will suffice, but a cheese with fresh bread or water cracker arrangement is a must. Try this Fruit and Cheese Platter, or for a more savory option, Mediterranean Marinated Shrimp.


Decor:Keep your drinks cool (and liven up your party) with an inflatable cooler. For paperware and serving dishes, opt for brightly colored themed items, like a fiesta bowl and these pepper-printed paper cups. And don't forget to have a couple of sombreroslying around for guests to wear.

Activities:No matter what your age, a piñata is always a good time. If entertaining kids, fill with candy and let them go at it. For a more adult version, fill with lotto tickets, pens, playing cards or any other age-appropriate trinkets.

Food:For a fiesta, anything spicy and flavorful is key. Try our Southwestern Layered Dip with Chips as an appetizer, and for the main course, try these Chicken Enchiladas—which are sure to have your guests saying gracias by the end of the night. For drink options, opt for Blush Sangria or Classic Margaritas.


'80s Party
Decor:"Rock the Casbah" with a variety of extremely big, brightly colored decorations. Find balloons in electric blues and neon pinks to greet guests in the foyer. Then gather up your old '80s band posters to stick up around the house, hang neon lights outdoors, and cover tables with polka-dot tablecloths—another popular design of the decade.

Activities:It's no surprise that an '80s music dance-off is the best activity for this kind of shindig. Put together a playlist of popular jams from the legends (think Pat Benatar, Bonnie Tyler, Journey, Foreigner) or popular dance hits. Want to make it competitive? Award the best dancer with a party favor at the end of the fun.

Food:Easy-to-eat finger foods are simple to munch on and allow your guests to keep dancing all night long.
