Selecting A Party Theme
Coming up with a theme is the easiest way to create an atmosphere for your party. Selecting your party theme should be one of the first steps in your planning process. A theme doesn’t eliminate spontaneity from your event it makes it more complete. Before you create your party theme think about how some themed parties made you feel in the past. Was it the Hawaiian party theme, or the 60s flower child theme, or Mardi gras party theme was the most precious experience? Your theme could be a single theme or variations on other themes.
Whatever your party theme may be make sure you incorporate it in as many aspects of your party as you can. For example, if you go with a Christmas party theme make sure everything speaks “Christmas.” You should ask your guests to come dressed in Christmas theme close. Make sure you prepare foods normally served around Christmas time, and serve it in Christmas theme plates. The possibilities for decorating your house for a Christmas theme are endless. Even the colors you use should reflect your theme.
If you are having a party for your child, get her involved. Your child will have a lot of fun just choosing the party theme.
Because most holidays reoccur every year, you have plenty of time for planning and preparing. You can stock up on supplies long before your event. If you have a Christmas party every year, you may be able to save a lot of money buying decoration items after the holiday season. By planning ahead you are not only better prepared but you can also save a lot of money. Gift and party stores are full of great deals to be had after the holidays. It gives you an opportunity to pick up holiday themes plates, napkins, tablecloths, cups, and many more items you may need for your party.
The fundamental difference between theme parties and parties that feature themes is the amount of planning involved. With some thought, a lot of creativity, and careful planning you can create a great theme party everyone will love.
