Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Any ideas for theme parties.

I am planning a party in mid-summer for my wife who will be celebrating a major birthday.
I have tried theme parties in the past, mostly very successful.
I had a Christmas party in July one year, a mid summer party a week before Christmas, a Bob-the-Builder party, when I was doing a property development project. You can get the drift of how my mind works.
I am now looking for a theme for this year, and would be grateful for any suggestions. I am thinking about Vicars and Tarts, or As Bare as you Dare. I expect to have about 25/30 people, and the food of course will be BBQ. I plan to have three large eggs, borrowing 2 from friends who will help me cook on the night.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Greetings from Ireland,
Roger

    irishrog,
    I went to a "wig" party once and it was a blast. Very simple, dress as normal, but everybody wears a wigs.... it really tells a lot about some people.

    irishrog,[p]A variation on the wig idea is a hat party. (Hats are a bit easier to come by.) When my youngest was not quite 2, he wore hats everywhere. He had to have a hat on his head at all times. He wore the funniest hats - ladies hats, old straw hats, etc.[p]So for his birthday, we dedided to have a hat party. It was pretty much all adults being invited. We did something like 'hats off to Jesse.' I told everyone they had to wear a hat and I would have extras on hand for those who showed up without a hat (shower caps were threatened to be used). It was great fun. Only one person absolutely refused to wear a hat. You guessed it - Jesse! LOL He hasn't worn a hat since. Ornery little kid.[p](We also went to another adult hat party that was lots of fun. People choose funny hats.)[p]Gwen

    dimplesmom,
    I remembered this morning another party I did a few years ago. Very simply, the men came as women and the women dressed as men.
    We got everything from hairy legged nuns to James Bond with a very full shirt.
    All suggestions for this years extravagansa are being taken on board, and the decision of the organising committee (me) will be final.
    To be fair to those who normally come to my parties, they get involved in the theming, and tend to stay very late before going home. i.e. 4/5 a.m. is not unusual!!
    Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Roger
