Are you getting ready to throw the perfect soiree? Whether it’s a holiday party, a birthday party, or a “just because” party, you want it to go off without a hitch. It all starts with picking the perfect party theme.
Sure, your party doesn’t need a theme, but some of the most memorable parties have themes. Who doesn’t love dressing up for a special themed party?
But how can you choose the right one? We’re here to give you some inspiration. Keep reading to learn all about it.
First: Where Are You Hosting It?
Sometimes the venue will dictate your theme. Sure, you can pick a basic venue and fill it with anything, but you could also pick a venue that makes it obvious that you’d have a specific type of party.
Do you have a love of gambling? Why not look into some fun casino party ideas? You can have a classic gambling night at your local casino with a fancy dress code.
Are you having your party at a local pool? Why not have an old-fashioned pool party, fully equipped with tropical drinks, pool games, and fun in the sun?
Renting out an old barn? That’s right, it’s time for a hoedown. Don your best cowboy boots and set up the dancefloor for line dancing.
Do Your Guests Like Fun?
This might seem like a silly question, but you also need to consider whether or not your guests actually want something fun, or if they want something fancy.
Not all guests are up for costume parties, dancing, and pre-planned activities. Sometimes people just want to gather, chat, and eat food with friends. In other words, you have to know your audience.
If you have a serious group, consider a simple black-tie affair or a wine and cheese gathering. If you have a group that’s itching for a quirky and fun time, why not think outside of the box and do a murder mystery party or a game night?
What’s Your Budget?
Let’s face it: parties can be expensive. Hosting parties is fun, but when you’re the host, you’re footing the bill.
Make a brief party budget before you start planning. How much are you willing to spend on your venue, food, decorations, and entertainment? You don’t need a large budget for fun parties, but if you don’t plan your spending, you’re going to run into problems later on.
If you’re working with a smaller budget, consider parties that you’re able to throw at home. Again, murder mystery parties are great for this, but you could also throw a potluck garden party or a wine and cheese night in which everyone brings their favorite wine.
If you have a larger budget, you have the flexibility to go all-out.
What’s Your Perfect Party Theme?
The best parties start with the right party theme. What type of theme is right for you?
Do you want a serious and simple black-tie event? Do you want to go all out at a night at the casino? What about a Gatsby-style 1920s shindig?
Regardless of what you choose, your party is sure to be a blast. It’s time to start planning!
