These fun theme party ideas will get the soirée started off right

Have fun with these great theme party ideas.

When party planning, themes are always extremely useful to work around, but you don’t have to stick to common concepts. Go beyond the luau with these fun ideas.

Out of This World Party

Play off astronauts, alien movies, or even mad scientists to create a wacky but endearing party environment. You can set the scene out back under the stars, or create a basecamp in your living room.Kids and adults will love traveling through time and space on cute edible rockets while blasting each other with water "ray" guns to get in the spirit. So leave your worries behind and head deep into the galaxy for a wild party worth having!

Murder Mystery Dinner Party

Hosting a dinner party takes a certain finesse. You must be able to not only gather the right people, but accomplish a gorgeous tablescape and pull together an unforgettable menu. But making it fun is a whole other challenge. Consider hosting a murder mystery party where you make one guest the “murderer” and dream up other characters to make the story (and dinner) more interesting!

Host a Puppy Party or Cat Party

For puppy parents (yes, they count as parents), it is completely rational to treat their furry friends like one of their own. So after your puppy has spent a year learning to listen to commands and resist destroying your rug, why not treat your little guy to a party celebrating just them? Cats aren’t always the most social creatures. While your puppy would completely appreciate a day celebrating them, cats are more standoffish. But an animal that can clean itself and ration its own food isn’t anything to scoff at. Show your little fluffball you care with a cat-themed party.

Does the idea of hosting a dinner party send you into a panic? You're not alone. A 2009 survey conducted by an after-dinner mints company found that 57 percent of respondents felt that hosting friends for dinner was more stressful than going to work!

When it comes to entertaining, the focus should be on fun--not perfection. In lieu of the traditional, sit-down dinner party, which puts all the stress of the food prep on you, opt for a casual, interactive feast instead. Assign guests to bring an ingredient or a dish, and make dinner a DIY activity. (Everyone always ends up hanging out in the kitchen at parties anyway!) By letting guests at least partially make their own dinner, you can not only deflect attention if something goes awry but also avoid having to cater to picky palates or food allergies. Here, we've compiled a baker's dozen ideas for casual, collaborative dinner parties.

Shake It Up Ideas

  1. Rethink Seating - Instead of sitting around a table, put floor pillows on the ground and eat around a low table or coffee table. This is especially fun if combined with a family-style dining option where everyone can pass food and sample different dishes.
  2. Dessert First - Serve the most anticipated meal first and then work backward to the appetizers. It’s a fun spin on a meal that will make all your guests light up when they’re handed a delicious dessert first.
  3. Go Vegan - Can vegan food be a theme? It sure can! Consider trying some of the new vegan recipes taking the internet by storm, such as cashew cream as a condiment instead of sour cream or plant-based burgers. You’ll surprise your guests with something new and avoid potential food sensitivities in one swoop.
  4. Family Style - Rather than serving a plated meal, put out large portions of delicious food and let your guests fix a plate. Dishes like sliced flank steak and sides like garlic mashed potatoes and homemade bread make everyone happy.
  5. Indoor Picnic - Kids love it, why not do it for adults? Put out a large blanket and plan an indoor picnic for your guests, just with more upscale food and drinks.
  6. Murder Mystery - Pick up or download a dinner murder mystery game and assign each guest a part to play. They’ll show up in character and you’ll get to play host. Pick menu items based on what will best match the murder mystery setting.
  7. Mini Menu - Only serve foods that are in their mini form — such as baby carrots and pigs in a blanket. Everything is cuter when it’s mini!
  8. Glow in The Dark - Maybe you’ve seen those restaurants where people dine in the dark. While you won’t make your guests do that, consider lighting the dinner with glow in the dark lights or settle for romantic mood lighting with candles.
  9. Drinks First - Rather than focus on the meal, put your effort into the drinks! Either serve one unexpected (but delicious) cocktail with a mocktail option or put out a few homemade juices and smoothies.
  10. Color Theme - Only make food that is a particular color, or two colors, for a fun twist.

10 Dinner Party Themes Your Guests Will Love

Throwing a dinner party can be stressful. What do you make? Should you decorate? Will your guests have fun? Add a theme to your party, and suddenly everything falls into place. It's a snap to figure out your menu and decorations, and chances are your guests will enjoy a themed event more than a standard party.

What theme you select is limited only by your imagination. More traditional themes -- say, a Mardi Gras dinner on Fat Tuesday -- are perennial favorites, while creative ideas such as an animal theme (all foods come from a particular animal or are shaped like it) are fun surprises.

To spark your creativity, here are 10 dinner party themes, both traditional and unusual.

One of the most popular dinner party themes is ethnic food. If you've got guests with finicky palates, stick with cultures whose foods are more mainstream (at least by Americans standards), such as Italian, Mexican or Chinese. Adventurous diners can sample Thai, Ethiopian, Indian or Japanese cuisine.

Decorations can be simple -- a red-and-white checked tablecloth topped with a candle in an old Chianti bottle for an Italian theme paper lanterns and a big bowl of fortune cookies for a Chinese theme figurines of elephants (sacred to the Thai people) and banana-leaf placemats for a Thai theme.

Play music from those cultures to add to the ambience just make sure the volume is set on the low side.

Don't stress over your party's ambience. Dropping a bundle on decorations isn't necessary, nor is a masterful playlist of tunes. The main thing is to have the table attractively set, and make sure your centerpiece is low enough to not interrupt conversation.

A Valentine's Day party can be lots of fun, but it's hardly a novelty. So try picking a lesser-known holiday or day of note from which to create your dinner party. The sky's really the limit here.

If you choose Groundhog Day, for example, you can serve all brown foods, foods shaped like the furry critter, or plan your evening according to the popular 1993 comedy movie of the same name, dining on dishes referenced in the movie, playing the soundtrack in the background, etc.

And why not even create your own holiday -- or steal someone else's. Throw a party to celebrate Festivus (every Dec. 23), courtesy of Frank Costanza on the TV show "Seinfeld." The Feats of Strength, one of the hallmarks of Festivus, would make for some great after-dinner entertainment!

Everyone has a favorite movie, book or play. So why not plan a dinner around yours? It certainly helps if your favorite has a strong food component, such as "Eat Pray Love," a movie which initially centers around pasta, or "Chocolat," a story about a female chocolatier.

But even if your favorite is the "Harry Potter" book series, it's not a problem. In fact, it might even be more fun. The books' butter beer, pumpkin juice, treacle tarts and cauldron cakes, just to name a few, would be fun to invent if you like to tinker in the kitchen. But you wouldn't have to do that the series is so popular, lots of Web sites, including, already created the recipes for you.

Still other movie/book/play themes -- "Casablanca," for example -- could center more around the decorations and ambience than the actual food served. With the movie playing, a sign reading Rick's Café over your dining area and classic cocktails ready upon guests' arrival, you'll be all set.

Dinner parties are more successful if you remember a few simple rules. Dinner parties are meant to be intimate, so don't host more than six to eight people everyone should sit together at one table. Figure out a good mix of personalities to invite, and add in interesting friends who can help keep the conversation going (and someone who can help you in the kitchen if necessary).

Certain times in history have left strong images in our minds, whether we were alive during the period or not. What do you think of when you hear about the Prohibition Era or Flower Power? What about the Victorian Era, the Renaissance or the Roman Empire? Translate that into a dinner party idea.

A 1960s Flower Power party can mean tie-dyed placemats, beads in the doorway and endless music choices (think the original Woodstock Festival). If you tie in the food from that era, you're probably talking comfort foods like meatloaf and mashed potatoes, with whipped cream-topped gelatin for dessert. Add to the ambience by purchasing nostalgic toys for guests to tinker with before and after dinner. It doesn't hurt to dress the part, either bell bottom jeans and a fringe vest would be right on, man.

Dinner party themes don't have to take their cues from food or drink: Color themes are a popular and fun way to make a meal unique. A Lemons and Limes party features yellow and green decor, and guests at Black and White dinners (which are increasingly popular) are often asked to wear only black or white.

Of course, it's easy to slip a little of the color theme into the food and drink -- lemonade, lime vodka cocktails, lemon bars and key lime pie are all easy items to add to your Lemons and Limes party. Similarly, a Black and White dinner can conclude with, say, vanilla ice cream accented with chocolate syrup, followed by White and Black Russian after-dinner drinks.

If you decide upon a more unusual color for your theme, like purple or yellow, don't dye your mashed potatoes or other foods guests might find that a bit unpalatable.

Don't let a fear of proper etiquette stop you from hosting a party. Your main job is to make everyone feel comfortable. Do this by introducing your guests to each other, graciously accepting hostess gifts and creating seat assignments.

Love pizza, tacos or pasta? Take a signature dish and make a few variations of it. For a pizza theme, make one standard pizza (but use quality ingredients), then go wild. Make a baked potato pizza: Top the crust with thin slices of potato, crumbled bacon, onions and cheese, and add a few dollops of sour cream when it's served. Assemble a Thai pizza with shredded beef, grated carrots and cabbage, sliced onions and peanut sauce. Leave one crust plain for guests to toss on whatever they'd like for the final pizza.

Into Mexican food? Set up a taco -- or burrito, nacho, fajita, whatever you like -- bar with a mix of hard and soft shells, a variety of meats and beans, salsa, avocado, cheese, sour cream, cilantro and any other toppings you and your guests will enjoy. Don't forget coordinating side dishes, beverages and dessert!

Remember to select your theme according to foods you're comfortable cooking. If you've rarely or never made barbecue, for example, now isn't the time to experiment.

Being green is increasingly becoming the norm, so why not throw a sustainable dinner party? Start by shopping at your local farmer's market for as much of the meal's components as you can. Or, if you belong to a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) organization, use whatever's in your weekly box. Talk to the growers to glean any stories about your food that you can share during dinner, or simply ask the farmers about their growing practices, location and history of their farms.

When preparing your table, use fresh flowers from your yard as a centerpiece, rather than buying some from the florist. Fruit and veggies from the market can also make an attractive decoration. Set the table with cloth napkins, and light beeswax candles.

Even if you grew up in the days of canned vegetables and over-boiled meat, you still probably have several favorite meals from childhood. So do your friends. Plan a potluck dinner where everyone shares his favorite dish, which you can divide up in any number of ways. For example, the host will supply the entrée, and each guest brings a side dish or dessert. Or you can assign everyone to a category (appetizer, sides, salad) and the final dish will be revealed at the party.

During dinner, guests can explain how their dishes were created, and tell any favorite family stories associated with it, such as the Thanksgiving when Aunt Dorothy pulled out this very gelatin mold from her fridge and it slid onto the floor. Extra points go to guests who bring the recipe with them or a photo of them as a child during the time they typically ate the dish they brought.

If everyone at the party is roughly the same age, play background music from that era, or create a mix with songs popular from every guest's childhood.

Much like the game Clue, guests at a murder mystery dinner are first assigned identities, then become suspects in the crime. During the meal, clues are handed out, and guests quiz each other to determine who the fictitious killer is. While these events are often big hits, it's best to purchase a murder mystery party game to help guide the action.

Not a big cook but still want to throw a dinner party? Serve soup -- it'll be a cinch! It's easy to whip up a few pots: broccoli and cheese, chicken noodle, minestrone, just to name a few. Throw in something more adventurous, too, like beef borscht, crab bisque or tortilla soup. You can also make a few variations on one soup: think chili with and without beans and white chili. And while it's great if everything is homemade, you can certainly mix in some store-bought creations.

Fill in the dinner with salad, a few bread choices and a simple dessert (fruit crisps can be baked in advance and served warm or room temp). Foster the cozy ambience with a fire, if you have a fireplace, or dim the lights and use lots of candles. Not surprisingly, this type of dinner party works best in the fall and winter months, and because of its intimate nature, it's also better to have a smaller group of guests.

While a growing number of people are adopting vegetarian and even vegan lifestyles, most Americans still eat meat and dairy products and aren't well versed in the foods these diets accommodate. This makes vegetarian foods great choice for a dinner party, as everyone will learn a little about these eating patterns.

Web sites like Vegetarian Times and PETA offer a wealth of information on what it means to eat a vegetarian and vegan diet, and plenty of recipes are included. Just be sure to select a variety of dishes for your dinner party. At the start of the meal, explain the two types of diets and point out which dishes are which, and why. If any of your guests are vegetarians or vegans, ask them to share why they adopted this lifestyle and what they most enjoy about it.

We hope we've given you a few original ideas for your next dinner party. Happy cooking!

Tailgating Cooler Strategy

If you pack efficiently, you might only need to bring one or two coolers to game day. To make sure everything fits, only use containers just big enough to hold each item. Pack the cooler(s) just before leaving home, with the meat items on the bottom in between ice packs. Wrap any breakable bowls and jars in towels, and put condiments and veggies in last.

Tailgating Tip: Keep perishable items, such as burger condiments, in the cooler until you're ready to use them.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Separation Anxiety in Pets Can Lead to:

Chewing, Digging and Destruction

What Causes Separation Anxiety:

A number of things can cause separation anxiety in pets. A clear reason right now is due to covid-19 requiring individuals to stay home for extended periods of time. Then these individuals were able to return to their daily lives leaving pets along for extended periods of time. Another reason is some adoptable dogs may have separation anxiety when first adopted because they fear their guardian may leave. Another cause is if a pet experiences a sudden change in its normal routine for example covid-19 it can in return cause separation anxiety in them. Be aware that also moving can cause separation anxiety so if your dog and you move around a lot it can trigger separation anxiety in your pet.

How to Maintain Separation Anxiety:

If your pet has a mild case of separation anxiety try turning when you leave into something exciting for your pet. This can mean offering them treats before you leave so they start to associate you leaving with getting a treat. It can also be helpful to leave them puzzle like toys like the brand KONG offers toys that you can put treats into or put food like peanut butter, or cheese in. This toy will distract your pet for a while, and they get a reward when they play with the toy. These toys try to offer only to your pet when you leave the house. This will train your pet to start to enjoy the time when you leave because they know they will be given a reward.

If you pet has a moderate case of separation anxiety it can take more time to get them accustomed to you leaving. This means taking the process of leaving them way slower. Start only leaving your pet for short periods at a time and continue to reward them. As they begin to get used to it increase the period of which you are gone. Over time your pet will start to recognize that it is oaky you are gone because they receive rewards. For dogs who have severe anxiety especially when they notice you put on shoes or grab your keys. For these pets try to associate these items with you not always leaving. Try to use these items but not leave to show your pet they are not to be feared of these items. If you have a pet who typically follows you around try to do things like telling your dog to sit and stay outside a bathroom door while you enter that room. Gradually increase the time you leave your pet on the other side of the door. This trains a pet that they can be by themselves and will be okay. This process will take a while so remain calm and patient with your pet. This process should start out in a room but should overtime get up to you being able to leave your house and go outside without your pet following. Continue to watch for signs of stress in your pet like pacing, trembling, panting etc. If any of these signs and others appear take a step back and move slower. During this overall process it is important you take it slowly so try to not really leave your pet at all which can be very difficult. Try to arrange if you do need to leave that someone like a friend can stop by and be with your pet or try using a doggy daycare service just so your pet is not totally alone.

Some Other Tips:

When greeting your pet after being gone say hello in a calm manner and then ignore them until they begin to remain calm. Same thing with saying goodbye remain calm and do not give into them being wild and crazy. To calm them try having them perform a task they know like sit or down. Another tip is to possible crate train your pet. If your pet associates their crate with being a safe place this can ease their anxiety when you do go to leave. It can also be helpful if you do not crate your pet to provide a safe room that your pet typically fees the most comfortable in. Another tip is to provide plenty of mental stimulation for your pet like treats and toys. Also try giving your dog some sort of exercise before you leave every day. Leaving hidden treats and food for your pet to find throughout the day will also keep them busy and entertained. If none of the above tips help, try seeking help from a professional in pet behaviors. They will be able to determine a regimen to help you and your pet get better. Medication may also be necessary for severe cases so to speak to a veterinarian about the different options for your pet.

Separation anxiety can be common in pets especially after the year everyone has had. Look for signs of separation anxiety in your pets and notice the different ways you can assist your pet in getting better. Also remember to never punish your pet for any anxious behaviors. Do your best to not discipline and instead use these tips to avoid future behaviors. Separation anxiety can be maintained with patience.

Ten Recipes and Designs for Edible Cats for a Cat Themed Party!

Most people really love their pets and often give them an extra treat or two on their birthdays. So this post is going to be for all the Cat owners out there that want to celebrate with their feline friends on their birthday or Caturday. But don’t be confused, this is all human foods that we can eat, and maybe some titbits for the cat…

Black Cat Oreos

Nothing too complicated to start off this list, just some simple black cat Oreo cookies. With green M&M eyes, a pumpkin nose, and some chocolate chip ears they are fun to make and above all very simple. And as an added bonus is would be perfect for a Halloween party as well.

Baked Pumpkin Cat Doughnut Recipe

I would normally say that these baked pumpkin cat doughnuts are just too complicated for most of us to make ourselves, but thanks to the well-written step by step making guide it makes it look and sound fairly simple to make them, so might have to have a go.

Crispy Cat Head Treats

I’m sure most kids have played around with the old comedy rice Krispies, chocolate, and marshmallow mix. So why not use that method to make some of these rather tasty looking cat head treats! Once again these are more themed towards a Halloween party that a Caturday one. But the end effect is still the same, you get a tasty looking, and simple to make cat themed treat.

Cat Fruit Platter

Made using some Pineapple, a cherry, olives, and some wooden toothpicks, this cat party food is perfect for those who would like to try and eat as healthy as possible. Best of all is that they are fairly simple to make as well. No making guide in the link, but it does contain a load of other fruit platter fun.

Black Cat Cheese Ball

If I’m perfectly honest with everyone I am not really sure what a cheese ball is! But it seems to be made from several different kinds of cheese and a few bits and pieces to season it, then just roll it into a ball! It’s just not my cup of tea but if you like a nice tasty cheese ball I hope this is a great idea for you.

Pretty Kitty and Tom Cat Cake Pops

The simple round design of a cake pop is perfect for this style of a cat head (by just adding some ears) but you are still going to need some rather high cake making skills. But if you have the time and patience to make something like this then there is a really good step by step making guide in the link.

Cat Pizza

Every party needs to have a pizza and so I present to you this cat themed cheese and tomato pizza. Sadly you are going to have to hand make the base no matter what happens, but it shouldn’t be too hard to mould into the shape of a cat’s face, then simply add the vegetables and toppings of your choice to make the cat’s facial features.

Cat sandwiches

Sadly I couldn’t find a making guide to these great looking cat themed sandwiches, but do we really need it? Probably not, just cut circles out of normal sandwiches and then a dip in the head. Get it and never did for the ears and it should at least end up looking something like these ones.

Kitty cat ice cream sandwich faces

Probably best to save the recipe for the summer because ice-cream is not necessarily a winter treat. But if you a partial to an ice cream sandwich anyway this would be perfect for any cat party celebration. Made with soft sugar cookies, chocolate candy melts and some black liquorice laces for whiskers they are a cool treat in all aspects.

Black cat cupcakes

Trying to pick the best cat-themed cupcake was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. It was just so much choice, variety, and style to choose from that it was almost impossible. But I think my final choice is a rather good one simple cupcake design, covered in chocolate sprinkles and black liquorice laces have whiskers I think they are fine looking and sound rather tasty.
