Looking for a theme for your next party this month? Why not incorporate a monthly food observance? In August we are celebrating celery, fennel, cactus, kiwis, mushrooms, peaches, onions, oranges and papayas. It is also Family Meals Month, National Brownies at Brunch Month, National Panini Month and National Sandwich Month.

If your party takes place the second week of August, you can celebrate National Apple Week . Or, if you’re looking for a field trip idea, why not take a trip to your local Farmer’s Market to celebrate National Farmers Market Week, August 2-8, 2015?

Some of my favorite foods get a send up during this month. Here are just a select few:

  • National Ice Cream Sandwich Day – August 2
  • National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day – August 4
  • National Frozen Custard Day – August 8
  • National Rice Pudding Day – August 9
  • National S’mores Day – August 10
  • National Filet Mignon Day – August 13
  • National Vanilla Custard Day – August 17
  • Potato Day – August 19
  • National Pecan Torte Day – August 21
  • National Waffle Day – August 24
  • National Banana Split Day – August 25
  • Banana Lover’s Day – August 27
  • National Toasted Marshmallow Day – August 30

Every month has its food-focused “holidays” and these observance can help you make your parties fun. So grab you Ice Cream Sandwich today and enjoy!
