Throw the coolest party in town, the kind that people talk about for months, with some fun themes and party food ideas. The highlight of every party is the food. It’s what people look forward to and what they talk about afterwards. Forget expensive catering, even if you aren’t a top chef you can throw together some of these easy party food recipes. Whether you are feeding 10 people or 50, stick with finger foods which will keep people mingling. Start with a great theme and build your food around it. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

While these types of parties are popular in the summer months, there is also a place for them during winter. If you live in a particularly cold area it would be fun to throw a “think warm” tropical party. This theme is fun and easy to work with. Make sure there are plenty of coconut shells, leis and flowers. Tropical food is also relatively easy to prepare and serve, here is the perfect menu:

This party theme can be fun for everyone, poker sharks not necessary. The Vegas style theme is unique and will give guests a reason to get dressed up for the night. Make sure you have a few poker tables with cards and chips ready to go for entertainment. For the rest of the non-card playing group, make sure the drinks are flowing and the food is in abundance.

The name says it all with this party. Lots of wine and delicate finger foods will make this party a hit. Have a little fun with some blind taste testing games, for the true wine lover you can hire a wine expert to host. The key is to have fun and teach your guests how to pair their favorite wines with food. Do a little research in advance and make information cards for guests to bring home.
