Invite the right guests
Invite the right guests: You only want positive, supportive people at your divorce party. If you're ready to date again, ask guests to bring eligible singles.
Plan the music
Have upbeat breakup songs on hand; avoid any music that makes you melancholy.
Consider a gift registry
If you lost a lot of joint possessions in the divorce, consider signing up for a gift registry. If you don't need anything but know your guests will bring gifts anyway, ask for donations to charity.
Include a ritual
Include a meaningful ritual during your divorce party, something that symbolizes that your split is a beginning, not an end.
Recite divorce vows
Recite divorce vows -- promises you make in front of friends and family to cherish yourself from this day forward.
Serve a divorce cake
Serve a divorce cake. To make one yourself, just bake a cake and split it down the middle. Congratulations on your divorce!
