Party Like You’ve Finalized Your Divorce

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Divorce can be depressing, but it can also lead to one heck of a party!

Christine Gallagher is the author of books like The Woman’s Book Of Revenge (Citadel) and The Woman’s Book Of Divorce (Citadel), and runs, a site that helps divorcees plan parties to celebrate their newfound freedom.

Gallagher says although divorce is a “sad and difficult situation,” you must pull it together and move on, and a divorce party is the perfect way to start anew.

And she has some fun, festive divorce party ideas.

For example, Gallagher suggests throwing themed parties like a “lemon party,” where everything from the drinks to the decor is lemon-related to remind you that when life hands your lemons, make lemonade.

A split-themed party is also a good way to honor D-Day. You can serve goodies like banana splits or split pea soup, and play empowering tracks like Johnny Nash’s “I Can See Clearly Now,” and Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone.”

For party activities, Gallagher says you could throw darts at a picture of your ex or play a game of pin the tail on your ex.

And if you really want to celebrate surviving your difficult divorce, try throwing a Survivor party, with coconut bras, sushi, and Gloria Gaynor’s jam “I Will Survive.”
