Set your time machine to New York City's artistic boom years and invite your guests to become one of Andy Warhol's Superstars (Baby Jane Holzer, Edie Sedgwick, or even one of his many friends) for just one night.

2. Zine Party

Invite friends to bring old magazines, drawings, poems, or any other zine-a-ble items. Break off into teams, set out all your materials and plenty of paper and pens, and let the collaborative magic happen. Find out more about how to assemble zines here.

3. Twin Peaks Party

Grab a red light bulb, play Laura's theme on repeat, and invite everyone to put on their best drab 1989 garb on. Add a game of Twin Peaks trivia and you have a spooky party David Lynch would probably approve of.

4. Name That Tune Party

At a "Name That Tune" party, everyone dresses up as a song title. For example, someone in a bee costume would be "Imma Be" by The Black Eyed Peas. Once all the guests have arrived, take turns guessing what songs each costume corresponds to!

5. Vine Party

What better way to challenge your friends than by pitting them against each other in a game of social video creation? Each guest must make several Vines per hour, all labeled with a predetermined hashtag, for a chance to be named that hour's best Vine creator.

6. Crazy 88 Party

The Crazy 88 are O-Ren Ishii's personal army in the movie Kill Bill. To throw a proper Crazy 88 party there are two rules: 1) The venue must be swanky, and 2) Everyone must come dressed as Yakuza.

7. Waffle Party

Did you know you can make just about anything in a waffle maker? Have each guest bring an ingredient and get to work assembling outrageous waffles. Check out these awesome recipes for inspiration.

8. Jazz Age Party

Time to practice your Charleston and set your hair in finger waves! Jazz age garden parties are all about dressing to nines, and twirling parasols while calling each other "old sport" as much as possible.

9. Monochrome Party

Whether it be white, pink, or orange, the monochrome party is a fun challenge for both hosts and guests. Guests must arrived dressed in shades of one pre-determined color, and hosts must decorate and provide foods that are all within the same color family.

10. Shakespeare Party

Everyone dresses as their favorite Shakespeare character and everyone speaks only in grossly exaggerated Shakespearean english.
