A western-themed party is the perfect opportunity to put on your favorite cowboy boots and show off your dance moves. This theme takes on a more rustic vibe with wooden barn doors, benches, and bales of hay. The goal is to evoke cowboy westerns with gingham table cloths, glass mugs, and hanging wanted posters of your friends. Cowboy hats, tight jeans, and lassos can also help you all travel back in time without actually going anywhere.
Set a James Bond scene as soon as guests arrive with tiny tchotchkes that evoke the spy life. Then, inside your party space, add party games, twinkling lights, and black and silver streamed walls for a sense of thrill and secrecy. Set a formal dress code so everyone can show up as dapper as your favorite charming spy.
For warm-weather parties, start the grill and throw your loved ones a tropical-themed dinner party. Stock up on coconut-shaped cups, cold beverages, a blow-up palm tree, and a table full of delicious tropical food. Hang some twinkling lights around your trees for a soft, romantic glow after sunset. Throw on flip-flops and a swimsuit to really take yourself to an island paradise.
With a rainbow celebration, the more colors you use, the better. Start by blowing up different colored balloons to create a rainbow-shaped balloon wall for the perfect photo backdrop. Then, assign each of your guests a color of the rainbow and have their outfit reflect that color (if you have more guests, double up). Ask your guests to bring an appetizer that matches their color to fully immerse your party in the rainbow.

I love parties.We had a Hawaiian party today as it was summer. I made some pineapple sticks, we then did the limbo dance and had a great time as well. There even was a barbecue with burgers, and hot food too. Later on there was several platters of tasty cookies, chopped up fresh fruit and mini sandwiches.We also had entertaining live music in addition. It was a lot of fun. Someone prepared a few different mock tails and there was also a whole tray of appealing colourful sweets, cake and biscuits to eat. I loved it all. Next time we will try out a couple of your ideas and see what happens.

You don't have to be at a party to see this phenomenon in action, but there's a curious thing I regularly see at parties in social circles where people value intelligence and cleverness without similarly valuing on-the-ground knowledge or intellectual rigor. People often discuss the standard trendy topics (some recent ones I've observed at multiple parties are how to build a competitor to Google search and how to solve the problem of high transit construction costs) and explain why people working in the field today are doing it wrong and then explain how they would do it instead. I occasionally have good conversations that fit that pattern (with people with very deep expertise in the field who've been working on changing the field for years), but the more common pattern is that someone with cocktail-party level knowledge of a field will give their ideas on how the field can be fixed.
Asking people why they think their solutions would solve valuable problems in the field has become a hobby of mine when I'm at parties where this kind of superficial pseudo-technical discussion dominates the party. What I've found when I've asked for details is that, in areas where I have some knowledge, people generally don't know what sub-problems need to be solved to solve the problem they're trying to address, making their solution hopeless. After having done this many times, my opinion is that the root cause of this is generally that many people who have a superficial understanding of topic assume that the topic is as complex as their understanding of the topic instead of realizing that only knowing a bit about a topic means that they're missing an understanding of the full complexity of a topic. 041b061a72
