"A successful party takes ideas, organization, and your shoulder to the wheel.
When it is successful there is nothing like the satisfaction of knowing you put it across. The easiest way to do it is to set a theme, decide on the kind of food your crowd likes and provide enough space and opportunity for activity to keep the party moving.
The following party ideas can be used in combination with your own ideas and we hope they will spark some new ideas of your own. The food is all easy to prepare and you can do it yourself as part of the fun of having a party.
Be the Elsa Maxwell or Lucius Beebe of your gang. No party will be complete without your contributions and presence."
