Time to party! Look here for great ideas for entertaining -- indoors and out. Whether you're looking for party recipes, party decorating ideas, or great themes and recipes for birthdays and baby showers, this collection of ideas for entertaining guests will inspire you to throw a party this weekend. A birthday is one of the most popular occasions for a party. Check out our birthday ideas, including birthday party favors, cake recipes for boys and girls, game ideas, and fun birthday traditions. If you're giving or heading to a baby shower, check out our great ideas. A baby shower party is all about the new mom and dad -- pamper them with cute gifts and nibble on delicious light bites related to your party theme. Sometimes parties are best as casual get-togethers. Invite friends over for a weeknight grill-out, a low-key potluck, or a wine-and-cheese party. Each gathering ignites conversation and is sure to create memories of a fun-filled evening. If you're not hosting, peruse our potluck recipes and hostess gifts to show your thanks for the party invitation.
