Yes, you can say that each one of them was nice.

You can also say, "Each party was nice."

You can also say

3: All of the parties were nice.

I suggest that both your example and David's subtly suggest that every one of the parties had something special about it, whereas mine is more likely to be understood to mean that they were all fine, but nothing really stood out to distinguish any of them in particular.

Emad,

To me, "every" sounds more natural, but both are correct.  And, of course, you can also say:

6: Peter has been to a lot of parties this month. He enjoyed all of them.

I must say that I don't have nearly the same sense of difference in meaning as I did with the earlier set of examples, although I really can't explain why.  This is one of the dangers of using "sense" as opposed to demonstrable rules, as I have done here.

I hope my colleagues can help provide the insight that I seem to be lacking just now.
