No Cook Party Ideas

This blog is all about entertaining and how you can do it better and easier; because lets face it, at the end of the day it's all about family and friends being together. So here is 3 EASY peasy ways to throw together a party without getting 1 pan out, starting the oven or even boiling water. Get your take out menus and lets have a party!

Pizza Party
Who doesn't love pizza? Call up your local pizza joint and order a few large pies with fun toppings on it (ordering 1 large per 4 people should be enough) like pineapple and ham, white pizza with ricotta and mozzarella or shrimp and garlic. Ask them to cut the pizza into 16 slices and lay them out on nice platters. Order a big salad and DONE!
Drink this fun cocktail from Giada De Laurentis:
Sgroppino
1 Cup chilled Prosecco (Italian sparkling wine)
2 tablespoons chilled vodka
1/3 cup frozen lemon sorbet
1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh mint leaves
Pour Prosecco and vodka into 2 champagne flutes, spoon a scoop of sorbet in each flute and sprinkle with mint leaves. Serve immediately.
Decorate with some pretty Sunflowers that are available at your supermarket now.

Mexican
Go to your local burrito joint and order a variety of burritos. My local place Salsa Salsa has yummy varieties like Nacho Burrito, Whole Wheat Spinach Burrito and Seasonal Fish to name a few. These puppies are huge so ask them to cut each one into 4 pieces. Place on a platter, order chips, salsa and guacamole and DONE!

Drink Corona... enough said.

Decorate: since you need the limes anyway use a few along with lemons and oranges and place in a large vase. Festive, fresh and chic, just like you!

Chinese
Get some dim sum, dumplings or go nuts and order the PuPu Platter (try to stifle your giggles while ordering please...we're adults!). Get an order of lo main and/or cold sesame noodles. Arrange the dim sum on a bamboo steamer if you have it and pretend you made them. DONE!

Since the food was super easy put your time into making a Lychee martini.
Mix Lychee vodka with Lychee syrup and garnish with Lychee fruit

Decorate your table with a bunch of lanterns in various sizes and shapes. Surround with candles...done!
