  What is a Dinner Party?

Definition of a Dinner Party
"A dinner party is a formal social gathering at which people eat dinner together, usually in the host's own home. At the least formal dinner parties, a buffet of food is provided on a table or counter, and the guests choose items from the buffet and eat standing up as they talk and mingle. At the most formal dinner parties, dinner is served at a dining table with place settings. Dinner parties are sometimes preceded by a cocktail party, a social gathering in a living room or bar where guests drink alcoholic cocktails as they mingle. Female guests may wear cocktail dresses. Men often wear cocktail blazers/jackets. Cocktail parties are often held as a prelude to a dinner party."

The United States and Canada have experienced a recent Renaissance of the dinner party, most notably amongst college-educated urbanites in their mid-twenties to mid-thirties. While the spike in popularity of the dinner party has been witnessed in nearly all major cities, the Chicago Dinner Party Scene is arguably the strongest in the US. Many dinner party enthusiasts assert that the post-2000 North American dinner party trend had its genesis in that city. wikipedia / documentation_license

Potluck Dinner Parties
On less formal occasions, a host may invite guests to bring drinks, appetizers, main dishes, side dishes, or desserts. This is called a potluck dinner. 

Theme Dinner Parties
Everybody loves theme parties and many Dinner Parties are "Theme Dinner Parties"! It just another way can add a bit of fun into the formal gathering in a simple way. A theme party is a gathering of persons who have been invited by a host for the purposes of socializing, conversation, and recreation based on a certain theme."
