5 great party theme ideas
What’s the occasion? The Olympics.
What better way to celebrate one of the biggest sports events on the planet than dressing up as the bona fide creators of sporting battles and, of course, the Olympics; the Greeks! With Tokyo 2020 just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to throw a Greek-themed bash.
There’s plenty of options when it comes to dress code, including white robed Greek philosophers, Greek Gods or even mythological creatures if you want to spice things up a bit. For the nibbles, you can do a lavish buffet topped off with fresh grapes and wine. For the decor, vines laced over furniture or walls will suffice.
Theme: Casino Royale
What’s the occasion? A Luxury Get Together
If you’re going for glitz and glamour, planning a casino themed event is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion.
Everyone gets to be a winner at a casino themed event. For your dress code, you can go classier than class with a 007 twist – think black tie and cocktail dresses. Alternatively, you could be a little more adventurous. How about ‘Just Married in Vegas’? Think glitter, gold and Elvis Presley.
You can truly go all out with this one, getting themed invitations, menus and decorations, casino games or even live entertainment if you fancy going all out.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to organise the event at home, there are lots of casinos that organise themed, bespoke events on site.
Theme: A Blast From The Past
What’s the occasion? Your Birthday!
For a nostalgia-rich event, how about inviting your guests to take a trip down memory lane and dress up as one of their childhood icons. The best part? These can be as weird, wonderful, or non-human as you like! Expect the likes of Mario and Luigi, Michael Jackson or Freddie Mercury – don’t forget to update your Spotify playlist! Maybe even a few Marlyn Monroes will turn up too!
For that added touch of nostalgia, how about organising a mini photo-booth to capture the memories?
Theme: The Wild West
What’s the occasion? Summer Solstice
For a truly unique gathering, why not try hosting a Wild West themed party to celebrate the height of summer? Under the summer sun, you can hold a BBQ for all your friends. There’s no excuse not to dress up for this one; cowboy hats, boots and a holster will do the trick!
For outdoor events, you can turn your garden into a ranch, maybe even revamping your old gazebo for some extra pzazz. Make ‘Wanted’ posters of your friends and family and have them posted around your home for a laugh. Bingo, Buckeroo and Pin The Tail On The Donkey are all great Wild West themed games, which are also great for kids if it’s a family event.
Theme: Nightmare on YOUR Street
What’s the occasion? Halloween.
For an ultra spook-athon, let your neighbourhood play a part in the world’s most iconic horror story. Invite your friends and family to dress up as their favourite (or most feared) ghoulies and ghosts. Prepare for some terribly wicked creations.
You can easily get themed candies and halloween music – movie playlists are a great place to start. You can go wild with monstrous decorations too; think cobwebs, green goo, mini fake spiders and, of course, pumpkins!
