Dinner party themes that guests will love include a casino theme with food and dessert shaped like casino chips, complete with slot games to entertain guests, or a Mardi Gras-themed dinner with masks for each guests, classic New Orleans-style food and brightly colored decorations. A potluck party where guests bring their favorite dishes to share with attendees is also a family favorite.
Instead of a savory main course, host a desserts-only dinner party for guests with a sweet tooth and serve pies, cakes, cookies and muffins.
A green-themed dinner party for the environmentally friendly crowd should be a guest-pleaser; use recycled plates and utensils to serve local and organic foods. Meet the needs of your animal-friendly friends with a vegan- or vegetarian-themed dinner party or celebrate with a color-themed dinner party, only serving foods of a particular color, such as green grapes, lettuce, green Jello and green beverages.
A breakfast burrito bar dinner party complete with eggs, fresh veggies and burrito toppings offers a serve-it-yourself environment perfect for children, whereas an Italian-themed party with spaghetti, lasagna and fine wine is ideal for adults. An additional dinner party idea would be to serve Asian selections; offer each guest a traditional kimono and use chopsticks instead of knives and forks.
