My DH is heading out of town for business this afternoon and won't be returning till Friday.

So I'm hosting a party thread:

If you could plan your own party, what would you throw yourself?


Budget: Virtual Cost is no object :)
Guests: Frugal Villagers

Plan for theme, food, drinks, party favors and entertainment!!!

Lets get some ideas rolling and see if any of us get arrested. :p

I'd throw a big BBQ here where you all dressed casually bringing a favorite dish to go with steak & seafood, burgers & dogs. Ice cold beer, soda, daiquiri's, lemonade... There'd be music, dancing, horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, fishing & swimming in the creek.... A definite relaxing lets have fun time. :thumb:

Oh come on you guys. We are going on a cruise. And we will be on the cruise for two weeks. Just need to figure out where we want to go. Personally I would like to take a cruise around europe. Did I mention that the cruise is free and we have all the really great cabins.

ooooooh, Kemma, I LOVE that kind of curried chicken salad! Mine calls for diced apples, walnuts, and mango chutney in the mix, though. (grapes, too) Yum.

I actually MADE petit fours once. Key word there is ONCE. They are a Pain in the Tuckus to make. Messy, too. I'll (virtually) bring some to the party, but they'll be from a (virtual) bakery.

I want a party around our pool - food prepared by beach boys --
sashimi, steaks, lobster, arugula salad, asparagus with hollandaise sauce, chicken with papaya, sliced pineapple.

Chilled champagne, tropical drinks for those who want them.

Then in the evening - some of my favorite local entertainers to serenade us with Hawaiian music and dance.
