Finding a theme not only streamlines the event planning process, it can also make it more fun. Whether planning a birthday party, a shower, or a wedding a theme can be a daunting task. There are so many choices and people creating new ones everyday!
I’ve put together the top 5 here to narrow the list. I hope this will help make this task more manageable.
Without further ado…. the top 5 party themes!
1. Movies and Characters
Depending on what is in the theater this category can vary. Right now Where the Wild Things Are and Alice in Wonderland/ Mad Hatter Tea Parties are both crazy popular. Lost and Glee weekly viewing parties might also fit in this category.
For the full details on a great Where the Wild Things Are party for kids, check out armelle. Too cute.
And for a fantastic Alice in Wonderland/ Mad Hatter Party, start with these awesome invites.
I lend toward a clean, white modern look. One of my friends love shabby chic– and I could throw a great party for her. I have even seen a preppy wedding. Is this fashionable choice right for your event?
Well, how about a Miami style pool party?
Or this rustic, elegant wedding? Any of these would be a beautiful party!
3. Time of Year
Seasonal parties give tons of options– from a summer BBQ to an Oscar event. Take a look at a calendar to give you an excuse to plan a gathering!
I loved this Kentucky Derby party put together by a fellow createmyevent blogger.
And Cinco de Mayo is right behind it!
I love color. Nothing ties a party together better or easier than coordinating the color of the napkins, plates, drinks and tablecloths. Varying the shade can keep it from being too matchy. To take it to the next level, pick a color then chose a style (#2). Too chic.
This place setting from Martha uses preppy style and green. So eye catching.
In addition to sporting events (Super Bowl, play offs), the activity category can dictate the decor for the event. From a fishing themed party, a murder game party, or simply loving to bike ride and using a penny-fathering on your invites, this choice can be cute way to reflect an active person.
This homemade fishing game is cute. (or check out my inspiration board for a full fishing party!)
And these bike themed invites are too cute.
I hope this list is helpful in picking the theme for your next party! What’s your favorite– on this list or not?
