There is no better way to celebrate a special occasion than with a themed party. Whether you are celebrating with friends or colleagues, they are just as much fun to plan for as they are to experience. Here are some ideas for a themed party you might want to try out yourself so you can turn a plain old get-together into a memorable shindig:
Murder Mystery Party
An interactive party game is perfect for a get-together or bonding session with friends. Depending on the setting of your story, a convincing ambience is the key to getting your guests in the mood to participate and stay in character. To do that, you will need quality decorations and party furniture. Buying all the materials would be costly, so it is best to rent them instead. Whichever state you are at, you should be able to find a place offering party furniture rentals, whether in Utah or New York. This way, you will be able to build a believable set without having to burn a hole through your wallet.
Great Gatsby Party
Can you think of a more fitting way to celebrate 2020 than with a roaring party inspired by The Great Gatsby? This theme would best suit grand celebrations that call for glitz and glamour, such as milestone birthday parties, wedding receptions, or your New Year’s Eve bash. For costumes and decor, think flapper dresses, crisp suits, lots of glitter and gold accents, fancy hors d’oeuvres, and towering bottles of bubbling champagne.
Hollywood Oscars Party
Elevate your office or graduation parties by throwing a Hollywood Oscars-themed celebration. Handing out awards is a witty and creative way of celebrating your colleagues or classmates. You can even have people act as paparazzi to take pictures of guests once they arrive at the entrance, then give out printed photos as souvenirs. Do not forget to lay out a “red carpet” for guests to walk on as they enter. Other appropriate decors would include trophies, silver and gold stars, Hollywood signs, clapperboards, and celebrity cut-outs.
If you are planning a birthday party, bachelorette party, or if you simply want to dance the night away, then a retro disco themed party is the way to go. When it comes to decor for a disco theme party, remember that the louder, the better. Bust out an 80s throwback playlist, spandex leggings, checkerboard patterns, mocktails, zebra prints, a dancefloor, and lots and lots of neon-coloured accents.
Indoor Beach Party
Bring the beach into your living room with an indoor beach party. This versatile theme is an ideal setting for anything, from a corporate party to a bridal shower. If you are willing to go the extra mile, you can fill the venue with artificial sand. Otherwise, seashells, plastic beach toys, driftwood, refreshing tropical drinks, seafood-based snacks, and casual beachwear will do. Also, a good summer playlist is a must.
These are just a few ideas to get you started on planning and throwing the ultimate theme party for friends, colleagues, and family.
