How to choose theme party ideas

Do you need event ideas? If you are planning a party, consider giving it a theme. Themes can range from conservative, such as nature, patriotic or opera themes to wild and crazy like Mardi Gras, sports or pirate themes. Here are some tips as to how to choose the right theme, including entertainment ideas.

Theme party planning

When choosing a theme for a party, the first thing to think about is the guests who will be attending. Consideration should be made for the age, gender and general interests of those who will be invited. While children may love a superhero, video game or princess party, adults would be more inclined to prefer a retro, murder mystery, Mexican fiesta or casino themed party.

Ideas for themed parties

In planning a theme party, pick something that you have some kind of knowledge of. It would be quite difficult to put together a Harry Potter party if you have never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. Keep in mind that the theme should start with the invitations, then continue with decorations, food, music, games and entertainment. Season-related themes
While some themes can work year-round, others are generally season-related. A beach party theme would work best in the summer months as items needed would be easier to come by during this time of the year. The same holds true for a winter wonderland theme.

Entertainment ideas for parties

You can add fun element in a party by adding entertainment. This can be as simple as setting up a horseshoe tossing competition for a western themed party or hiring a belly dancer for an Arabian nights party. As food is a very important part of party planning, it can also be incorporated into a form of entertainment.
Hiring a mime If you are hosting any kind of entertainment theme party, such as a movie or T.V. series theme party, contemplate hiring a mime to serve food. Party guests would probably really appreciate being able to watch a bartender create Romulan Ale if you are putting on a Star Trek party. Knowledge of the right food and drinks should be factored into choosing a theme. Final note
Planning a party can be a lot of work. If you are looking to choose a theme, do not be afraid to ask potential party goers for their input and advice. Mull over a variety of possibilities, then pick a theme which is best suited for your situation. You should also keep in mind the guests who will be attending the party and also, your knowledge of the party's theme.
