ideas for a party theme

Theme parties can go either way; they can be a good time for everyone or they can make some of your guests feel uncomfortable. If you would like to put on a theme party, then you need to consider your guest list and whether the people you plan to invite are likely to get into the theme and dress up. If the answer to this question is no, then you may want to keep your theme limited or give guests the choice of whether or not to dress up.

If you are hosting a holiday theme party, then it is easy to decorate your home with seasonal decorations to set the theme. For instance, a Halloween party means that your guests will have to get costumes; make sure that the guests that you plan to invite are comfortable with this. If they are not, then they might not attend your party.

If you want to have a theme party which is easy for everyone to get into the spirit of, then you can keep things simple by making a color the theme for your party or having everyone wear hats. Your guests can simply wear something that they're comfortable with and essentially, this gives them control over how much they want to do to go along with the theme of the party.

When you throw a theme party, there is more to think about than what you and your guests will wear or how you will decorate your home for the party. You may want to try to work the theme into the refreshments you'll serve to your guests. More unique ideas for a party theme here

For example, you could have a theme party which is a potluck and have your guests dress up in traditional clothing from their countries of origin and bring dishes from their ancestral countries. You could also have a tea party where you get out the fine china and serve cucumber sandwiches; whatever the theme is, you can bring it into the menu, your invitations and every other aspect of the party.

You may also want to consider a craft party. These are events where the host hires an expert to teach the guests a particular skill (like knitting, for example). After a lesson in the craft, everyone can socialize and relax. The food and drink served can be chosen to fit the theme as well. Craft parties are especially good choices for children's parties and for groups of like-minded adults.

Theme parties can be a lot of fun for the guests as well as for the host to plan for. They aren't everyone's cup of tea, but a well-planned theme party can get guests involved and enjoying themselves; and isn't that really what a party is all about anyway?
