31 Reasons to Throw a Party... for No Reason!

Katie Sweeney

There is the unfortunate misconception that a party must be held around a special occasion. Whether it’s a birthday, engagement, or holiday, the majority of people throw a party for a valid and specific reason. But what if it’s September 28 and there is no holiday, birthday, or wedding in the near future? Does that mean you’re not allowed to host the most memorable and fun bash ever? No! I’m a firm believer that you can have a celebration whenever you want for whatever you want. To inspire you to get your hostess-with-the-mostess hat out, I’ve come up with 31 reasons to throw a party for no reason. So go ahead: Text your friends, pop the Champagne, plate the cheese, and have the most stylish affair around, simply because you can.
