'Clueless Chick' shares fun excuses to throw a party

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

If you are looking for an excuse to throw a party this weekend, we have three that you will love. January is full of fun holidays you've probably never heard of like National Pie Day, Beer Can Appreciation Day and Chocolate Cake Day. Jennifer Durbin, author of Party Planning Tips for the Clueless Chick is here with some fun and yummy January party ideas.

National Pie Day

Jan. 23: Thursday is National Pie Day, a day sponsored by the American Pie Council to encourage people to bake their favorite pie. So why not bake (or buy) your favorite pie, or better yet chose pie as the theme for your next party. You can serve pizza pie, bite size pumpkin pies, pot pies, Sheppard's pie, pie pops, good ‘ol apple pie and decorate the house with pie charts and show the movie Life of Pi ;-)

Beer Can Appreciation Day

Jan. 24: That's right beer lovers, there is an official day dedicated to the beer can. Beer Can Appreciation Day commemorates that great day in 1935 when beer was first sold in cans, thus forever changing tailgating. What's the best way to celebrate Beer Can Appreciation Day? By cracking open a cold one of course. Or, if you're crafty, throw together a Can Cake or up-cycle your favorite beer can into a fabulous bud vase. Either way, you will also have the perfect centerpiece for your Super Bowl Party.

Chocolate Cake Day

Jan. 27: Wait, what?!? A day dedicated to chocolate cake?!? Yes, please. Send January out with a bang by throwing your own Chocolate Cake Day celebration, just remember that a yellow cake with chocolate frosting just won't do, it's all chocolate all the time on January 27th. Whether you bake the Clueless Chick's favorite Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake, pick up a chocolate cupcake, or bake chocolate chocolate whoopie pies for your coworkers, have a piece for me!
