Bring the party home with budget-friendly party plans complete with menus and fun Extras including playlists, invitations, and more.
Toast the time gone by with a party that's sure to live in the memory books for years to come.

Check out The Extras for a rocking 60's playlist of tunes designed to get the party going.
Girls Gone Green
Host a do-gooders party to encourage earth-minded thinking in your friend circle. Ask your guests to save their glass or plastic bottles, newspapers, and magazines for a week, then sample local fare while you bundle the materials. As hostess, plan to take the goodies to the recycling center later in the week.
Catch the wave of this popular game and host a Mexican-themed shindig complete with sangria, guacamole, and chimichangas. Download our customized Bunko scorecards that give perfectly with the theme. We've also supplied a rule sheet, just in case you go one-too-deep into the sangria pitcher.
Chocolate and Coffee Tasting
Celebrate a love all women share: Chocolate. Sample different varieties paired with delicious coffees from around the world and encourage guests to embrace their sweet tooth and indulge in shortcakes, cheesecakes, biscotti, and more. Dessert is not optional tonight.
Raise a glass for your single girlfriend's last night on the town. Whether you plan to head out later or make this party the main event, hosting at home saves big bucks on bar tabs and restaurant bills.
Spa Night at Home
Skip the pricey spa menu and indulge in at-home treatments of aromatherapy, facials, scrubs, and even a peppermint foot treatment with your best girlfriends. Have everyone bring a robe to change into, then get the gathering going by passing around tasty fruit-and-nut dishes and light spritzer cocktails. Download our soothing playlist to set the mood of the evening.
Break out the yearbooks and let the laughter begin, it's time to celebrate four (or five, or six) of the greatest years of your life. Get the gossip flowing with vodka cocktails and spicy salsa. Just be sure to stock up on your supplies–this could be a long (and very fun!) night.
Slip into your PJs and host an old-school night of classic chick flicks. Pair your favorite chick flick with buttery popcorn, fudgy brownies, and fruity punch. Make big batches of the drinks and keep in chilled pitchers to keep the "pause breaks" to a minimum.
Ditch the traditional shower games and get the party started with some blue or pink cocktails. Serve both and let guests vote with their beverage choice on the baby's gender. A lemonade cocktail can be made both virgin and alcoholic, so the mom-to-be and the guests will all be happy.
Casserole Swap Night
When cooking becomes more of a chore than a end-of-day relaxing event, call your girlfriends over for a cooking extravaganza. Ask each guest to bring two casseroles, one to taste and one to freeze. It's a great way to find new recipes that are kitchen-tested crowd pleasers. Use our printable personalized cards to write down each recipe for guests to take home with them.
Summer Solstice Celebration
Host a sunset soiree to usher in the dawn of summer. Pair fruity drinks with chilled appetizers to keep everyone cool throughout the night. Use our custom invitations to alert your friends to the party, then send them home with sun-shaped cookies to guarantee sweet dreams.
Celebrate Being Single
There are a million reasons to love being a single girl. Not having to share a closet, no arguments about the remote control, and owning as many shoes as we see fit–need we go on? Celebrate that girl power with a night of gourmet pick-up treats and upscale cocktails. You don't have to wait until Valentine's Day to celebrate your love for your girlfriends, so print our custom invitations and get the party going this weekend.
Turn a chore into a great excuse to get together with girlfriends around the holidays. Pool supplies and wrap the night away while sipping on mulled wine. If you know a gifted bow maker, make sure she's on the guest list for this one.
