What kind of party are you having?  A baby shower, child's birthday party, graduation party, wedding?  There are so many reasons to host a party that sometimes we miss having people over just because.  In today's world of scheduling and play dates and online calendars, do we often make the time to just get together?  Everything seems to be so scheduled around activities, work, and well, stuff.  The best nights we have is meeting up with the neighbors in the driveway and end up talking for a few hours because we can.  And we didn't have to clean the house, load up the car or plan a fancy meal.  I understand that there are responsibilities and commitments we all have and I am not saying to toss those out the window but sometimes the best things are unplanned.  I think that putting the camp chairs in the driveway is a great way to get together and have a party too.  Bring out the grill and burgers and there you go!  Now, if you know a neighbor who happens to have a bounce house or a waterslide, well that can't hurt either but you know, one thing at time!
