What is a Theme Party?
by Cathie, Pure Romance
A theme party is simply a party, with food, drinks, decorations, and maybe even clothing, relating to a specific holiday or idea.
Some of our more popular choices are Margarita Monday, Wine and Chocolate Wednesday, and Happy Hour!
Margaritas (obviously), Mexican beer, chips and salsa, guacamole, taquitos, cheese crisps, and flan for dessert. If you want to serve tacos, ask different guests to bring cheese, lettuce and tomato, sour cream, etc.
Wine and Chocolate Wednesday
Ask your guests to bring their favorite wine, or a chocolate item, (think truffles or brownie bites). Perhaps serve a cheese and veggie tray. You can create finger sandwiches or a quick casserole.
A shorter, faster version of a traditional party. Make this a BYOB. All you need to serve are chips and dips, and a crudité plate.
These types of shows make the hostess’s job much easier, because guests can bring appetizers, wines/cocktails, and even side dishes, if you choose to serve a meal. This helps the hostess concentrate on just one or two really amazing offerings, instead of having to create the entire experience by herself.

Pulled Pork Sliders
Photo/recipe from CDKitchen.com
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons sweet paprika
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground red cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
6 pounds boneless pork shoulder, blade roast or boston butt roast cut into 2 pieces, fat removed
16 soft buns (or more)
Combine all ingredients, except pork, buns, and coleslaw. For a tomato based sauce, add an additional 1/2 cup each of your favorite BBQ sauce and ketchup. In a crock pot, place the pork pieces, pour sauce over to coat. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours until pork is very tender and falling apart (may be cooked overnight).
Transfer pork to a large bowl or platter, cool and pull apart with fingers or two forks, removing any visible fat. Place shredded pork back into the sauce. Serve on buns topped with creamy coleslaw and additional hot sauce to taste for a true Southern style pulled pork sandwich.
