Party ideas for the special days of the year!
You don’t have to look too far in your calendar to find a reason to party; every month of the year has at least one holiday or special occasion that you and the kids can celebrate. Sure there’s the obvious, like Halloween and New Years; but did you know that August is National Sandwich month, March 10th is Middle Name Pride Day or that in the US, April 30th is National Honesty Day? No lie.
There is something going on every month and to make it easy, holidays come with established traditions and built in party themes. You can even add a twist to your holiday parties by combining the holiday with another party theme. For instance with luau decor, grass skirts and tropical treats you can host a Caribbean Christmas or try a Victorian Valentine’s Day party with fun paper crafts and parlor games. There are as many possibilities as there are reasons to party!
Here is a quick list of the major holidays that you can celebrate in 2015 with a fun party:
