I love an elegant theme party. It's a chance to delight your friends with inspired decor and a clever menu to match. Who wouldn't love an invite to that bash, right? Unfortunately, I feel like once springtime rolls around, people are less likely to sink their teeth into a hosting a proper party, instead favoring a casual get-together around the pool or patio table.

But guess what? You can still throw together a bash that's laid-back and on theme. It's the best of both worlds! Here are nine creative ideas:
