What is everything but a cup?

Anything But A Cup Party Rules

The only rule for an Anything But A Cup party is that you cannot drink out of a traditional cup. This means guests have to find other creative things to drink out of and bring their own item to the party. Other than that, there are no special party rules or dress code. It’s a unique idea that can be used for any party or gathering. You can make people who don’t follow the rule do something funny (like wear a dunce hat or use it as the perfect opportunity to have them do something embarrassing).

This creative party doesn’t just have to be for alcoholic beverages or just for a college student party. It’s a funny idea for any age. It can be any drink of choice in anything but regular beverage containers.
