Great Ideas for Party Themes
September 28, 2018
Celebrating important events in one’s life with a party is always a great idea, but celebration with a party that revolves around a great theme is even better. No matter what the reason for the celebration or the age of the guest of honor is, a well-chosen, creative theme can make the party unforgettable for everyone present, so if you are currently involved in organizing your own party or in throwing a party for someone else, here are some great ideas for party themes that you can use for inspiration and some factors that you should consider when picking a theme.
What Should Determine Your Choice
The most important aspect to bear in mind while thinking about party themes is the event to be celebrated. If you are organizing a birthday party, think about what the guest of honor likes – if it is your own party, think about a hobby or a habit that defines you; if it is a party for someone else, try to put yourself in that person’s shoes and figure out what would make the guest of honor happy in a way enjoyable for the guests, too. For example, if the guest of honor is a naturally shy person, making karaoke the overall theme might not be a good idea.
The venue is also very important. Try to pick a place that is friendly and informal, maybe a place that has some sort of emotional significance for the guest of honor that is also a venue suitable for the theme of the party. If it is your own party, you can have it in your own garden or backyard – private properties are great for themed parties because they be decorated any way you want, and there are Denver party rental places to get all you need to supply chairs and tables and music.
Don’t forget the food and the drinks either – good catering is essential for a great party and you can have party food revolving around the overall theme, too. Good examples include cheese plates for a Paris-themed party or tacos for a Mexican event.
Some Party Theme Ideas
You can choose a powerful theme that dominates the event entirely or partially or you can choose a lighter theme.
If you pick an era, such as the 1920’s or a period of many treasured memories for the guest of honor, you can make the party revolve around it with the help of the right decoration and music, but you can also ask the guests to dress up in costumes inspired by that era, it all depends on the crowd you want to entertain.
If you pick a place as inspiration for the theme, such as Paris or Hawaii, or you use a more mysterious formulation, such as Mysterious Island or Treasure Garden, you can emphasize the theme with decorations and lighting. You can also spice up the event with games inspired by the theme, but make sure all the guests are comfortable playing games (not everyone is).
Whatever theme you pick for the party, make sure that the atmosphere is informal and friendly – allow your guests as well as your guest of honor to relax and to have a great time.
