Cocktail Parties

We all love to enjoy a few alcoholic beverages and get our friends together. That said, there is an unfortunate misconception that a party must be held around a special occasion. Whether it’s a birthday, a holiday, or an engagement most of us need reasons to throw a party. But what if it’s just another calendar day and there is no holiday, birthday, or wedding in the near future? Does that mean you’re not allowed to host the most unforgettable bash ever? Of course not!

You can have a celebration whenever you want, for whatever reason you want. To inspire you to get your host hat out, below is 30 reasons to throw a party for no reason. So, go ahead: Text your friends, pop the champagne, plate the cheese, and have the poshest party around …simply because you can.
