Planning a Theme Party in Style

Everyone appreciates a good theme party, but you need to make sure that you get all the details just right depending on what you have chosen the event to be based around.

Here are just a few of the things that you need to consider along the way to give you a helping hand.

Choose a Party Theme

First and foremost, you need to actually choose a theme in the first place. Perhaps you could look through history to pick out an era that you would like to throw a party around such as a 60s night or even a medieval banquet. Maybe you are looking for something from film or literature such as a Harry Potter theme. Or maybe you want to get even more creative and come up with something to suit your individual personality.

Plan Activities and Games

No matter what the theme of your party is, it is nice to have at least one themed activity or game in mind. So, if you are going to have a film star party, why not have everyone act out their favourite scene from the movie and award prizes for the best? Of course, you don’t need to plan out the entire evening, but it is the little quirks like this that will ensure that your party lives long in the memory.

Decorating Dilemma

Decorating your party can get quite pricey, so you need to strike a balance between making sure it looks good but not overspending. The colour scheme is the first thing that you should start with, and this will give you a strong basis to start from. Before you hit the big party stores, check out the budget retailers and pound shops as you will save a lot of money this way. After all, a lot of the things that you buy for the party will only ever get used once.

Music Makes a Party

Get your party playlist arranged in advance to help add to the mood. If you want to go for a very special event, you could even hire a live band. Perhaps a classic rock group for a 70s night or a jazz band for a roaring twenties themed event - take a look at for some different options. Make sure that you structure the playlist to ebb and flow throughout the party.

Send Out Invites in Plenty of Time

If you are expecting everyone to dress up for your party, you need to give them plenty of time to
plan and prepare rather than springing it on them at the last minute. You could even create mailout
invites which clearly display your theme to build up anticipation. And make sure that everyone you
invite is going to fully embrace the theme from the get-go!

Planning a theme party can be a challenge, but it is ultimately worthwhile when you create an
occasion that people talk about for years to come.
