If you are looking to have some fun throwing a party, you may want to try making it a theme party. It may just add some excitement and life to an ordinary party. Here are some suggestions for theme party ideas.
1. Decade theme party – If you are throwing a party for people of the same age group, you may want to have a decade themed party. For example, if the people at your party grew up in the 80’s, then you could throw an 80’s theme party. You could tell people to come dressed as 80s singers or just dressed in 80s apparel. You may want to make a play list of some good 80s songs and play them at the party. By having a decade themed party, you can bring back some memories of how it was back then.
2. Hollywood night theme party – A Hollywood theme party may include dressing up as different actors and actresses. You could roll out a red carpet out for your guests who are arriving. You may want to video tape the event and pretend that you are the paparazzi, asking different questions and interviewing your guests. You could have a contest to see which guests can do the best interpretation of famous Hollywood actors and actresses. The guests who win the contest can have an award ceremony and be given prizes.
3. Tropical theme party – A tropical theme party may be a good party to have outdoors. However, if weather or space does not permit, an indoor tropical theme party may be just as fun. If you are serving alcoholic beverages, you may want to make drinks with a tropical theme, such as pina coladas or mojitos. You may want to buy a few hula hoops and have a hula hoop contest. Some decorating ideas you may want to use are tiki torches for outdoors, leis, beach balls, and Hawaiian grass skirts.
4. Casino theme party – A casino themed party may be a good idea for those who like to gamble. You could have playing cards at tables for poker or other card games. You could buy small casino board games, such as roulette or a craps felt table cover. If you are serving alcohol at your party, there is a shot roulette game you could purchase, which is a roulette game that has a spinning roulette wheel, 2 balls and numbered shot glasses going around the wheel. You may want to purchase some mini slot machine banks and place them around the room for decoration and fun.
5. Cookie theme party – You could invite guests over for a cookie party but your guests would be involved by baking their own home made cookies and bringing them to the party. This type of party is nice to host during the holidays. Everyone shows up with their baked cookies and they are shared among all of the guests. You may want to request that each person who bakes cookies will bring the recipe to share with others. You could have a cookie contest and a prize that goes to the person who baked the best cookies. Also, you may want to give the variety of cookies that may be leftover to guests before they leave so that they can take home an assortment of cookies.
