Theme parties are a popular way to make a party more fun and enjoyable. Not only Halloween and Christmas parties, but also birthdays, reunions and a simple wedding can be made more interesting by introducing a theme for it. It looks nicer when everyone sticks to one idea for clothing and accessorizing their getup. Planning a party with a theme can sometimes be a challenge; there are a few things to remember when you do.
Choosing the theme
Selecting a theme can be difficult; there are an innumerable number of theme ideas nowadays. What you need to consider is what ideas suit your guests’ taste and attitude, and what are more suitable for the occasion. For example, a graveyard theme can suit a Halloween party but not a wedding. Some themes are creative while others can be conventional. If the guests are young, they might not prefer older, tried and tested themes such as Hawaii or pirate. But “older” doesn’t mean dress ideas of decades gone by; pin up dresses from the Nostalgia Now, huge hairdos from the seventy’s and curled blond hair from the sixty’s still a hit with any generation.
World is going on change; if there is something that doesn’t change, that is change. Apart from popular and well known themes like Cinco de Mayo or comic-related ideas, there are now more technology-oriented as well as activity-based parties. Cooking parties are one such thing; guests mostly can be female but there is nothing against men participating as well. The guests come dressed in suitable kitchen attire and get cooking on a dessert or any other dish they agree on. At the end of course everyone can taste what they cooked themselves. It is not only useful as party theme but also a good practice session.
If you are picking a theme for the party, all else related must follow the same. Thematic invitations are to be sent out. It is easier of the guests are so inclined, sending an e-card, because designing it according to the theme will be comparatively stress-free. You can also add helpful hints and ideas of a costume or even a quote from someone. Decorations must also be suitable to the theme; it is always safer to appoint an event organiser for this, as it is a time-consuming task to decide on appropriate décor materials and designs. For example, a Hawaii party can have a tiki bar, banana leaves for plates, coconut cups for drinks and so on. Obviously food must also reflect the same theme along with any games and activities. For example, if it is a retro theme you can choose the best dressed in 1950’s swing dresses. If you are an independent individual planning a party or an event organiser, getting the reins right the first go of planning a theme party is important. You have to do to get practice in it.
