To make the night memorable, however, you don’t have to spend a lot of dough. Potluck parties are a great idea (so long as your friends are good cooks), and by taking the time to plan out a few special cocktails, you don’t have to stress about stocking your entire bar. If you’re more of a do-it-yourselfer, the appetizers just need to be quick and easy, the kids happy and quiet, and the drinks delicious. And as you finish the night off with some delectable treats (see: chocolate covered strawberries), everyone will walk away happy. That is, unless your guests are rooting for cute little Bolt to win best animated feature (because WALL-E has that in the bag).
