1. Evite

Now the go-to invitation website is the go-to invitation app! Create and manage invitations, view your guest list and comments, and get real-time notifications whenever someone RSVP’s, comments or changes their mind. This is particularly useful when you’re at the grocery store and can’t remember how many hot dog buns you’ll need!

2. 8,500+ Drink and Cocktail Recipes Free

Search over 8,500 drink recipes for the perfect Summer cocktail. You can add drinks to favorites for easy referencing or use the search bar to find a new favorite. Either way, you’ll look like a pro bartender with the help of this app!

3. Food Network- In the Kitchen: Recipes, Chefs, Cooking Tools & Shopping Lists

Get instant access to Paula Deen, Bobby Flay, Guy Fieri and other Food Network chefs and find the perfect recipes for your party with this app! Search thousands of chef-tested recipes rated by Food Network fans, click on ingredients you need to make a paperless grocery list and save the recipe for reference later in the “Recipe Box”! With helpful tools like a unit converter, and cooking timer, this app will be like your own personal chef to help you prepare for your bash!

4. Pandora Internet Radio

Deejays are expensive, and it can take hours to put together the perfect party playlist using iTunes- searching through every artist you own is tedious and now, unnecessary. Choose a couple of bands for inspiration, and Pandora will play their music along with the music of similar artists. The app is even integrated with the website, so if you already listen to Pandora online, your “stations” are waiting for you!

5. Talk About

Have you ever been to a party where you didn’t know anyone and didn’t have anything to talk about? Talk About is the ultimate “ice breaker”- it includes over 450 questions to get the conversation flowing between your guests. You can even choose from one or multiple categories such as Books and Movies, Computers and Technology, and Art. Even if you know everyone at the party, you’re sure to learn something new about everyone before they leave with this app!
