Classic fairy tales aren't as wholesome as Disney would like us to think. Host a Brothers Grimm party to honor what really happened to your favorite fairy tale characters. The average American watches five hours of television per day, so we're bound to have a favorite show or character. Have a Couch Potato party and encourage guests to dress like their favorite TV characters.

Choose a unique theme and your guests will no doubt thank you for helping them come up with an awesome costume!
