Have a "joke" cake where you use salt instead of sugar (then have some real treats).

The guests have to plan a practical joke to play when they get to the party and have to tell a joke to get in the door.

Snow Party

Plan ahead for this and when you have the first big snow of the year and the kids are out of school, you'll be ready at a moment's notice.

Plan games that can be played outside in the snow:

Do "snow painting" - Fill spray bottles with colored water and decorate the snow.

Have a snow sculpture contest.

Have a snowman dressing contest - have guests bring clothes to dress up their snowman.

For inside snow activities, bring the kids inside and have a warm snack ready and some homemade hot chocolate.

Teach the kids to make paper snowflakes.

Play snow spell - where the kids get a pile of macaroni letters and you see which team can spell the most snow-related words the fastest.

Build snowmen out of marshmallows and decorate them with edible treats.

As you can see, you can find an excuse to have every kind of party imaginable and it doesn't have to be a huge party or expensive. By having frequent, small parties, your kids don't expect the all-out, break the bank kind of parties and it's something your kids will always remember.
