The height of entertaining season is upon us, but that doesn’t mean you have to throw a seated, multi-course affair. (Unless of course that’s your thing, in which case go for it.) In the midst of the friendsgiving get-togethers, extended family reunions and everything in between, we wanted to throw a party that was a bit out of the box — something that would pique people’s curiosity. A little glamorous without being pretentious; over-the-top but never too serious. Enter: the fanciest game night party ideas.
Yes, you read that correctly. Fancy game night. Party games and board games break the ice and instantly give people something to do, so they’re perfect for mixed friend groups or a night where you just want to think about how to demolish your besties in Scrabble® and not your never-ending to-do list.
But this isn’t a simple night of Bridge and Parcheesi®. Oh, no, our take on game night features an extra-festive dress code, champagne, oysters and … french fries. Hey, we said we weren’t going to take it too seriously.
