Plan a Dinner Party

It's amazing what can happen at a dinner party. Day-to-day worries fade away, strangers engage in conversation and timeless stories ignite fits of laughter. As the weather cools down, let your kitchen heat up for a dinner extravaganza. Interactive help abounds, from virtual invitations to recipes and party supplies.

Dream up a Theme

  • Party411: Party Themes
    Themes galore. A Luau puts leis on every guest, palm trees on the wall and grass skirting around the buffet table. Fiesta Fun brings out the large-brimmed Mexican sombrero, paper flowers and maracas. You'll also find party games and plenty of party products at this site.

  • Dinner Party Ideas
    This collection includes menus for unexpected company, a backyard barbecue and a holiday open house.

Plan the Fare

Search sites listed under GourmetSpot Recipes for fare that pairs with your theme. Having a make-your-own pizza party? Search for the perfect dough. Planning a luau? Try keywords like "tropical" or "pineapple." You can also find great ideas in Ethnic Foods and Low-Fat Recipes.
