After long week of work and general admin, there’s nothing better than getting to the end of a Friday afternoon and going home for a weekend of relaxation and fun. Better yet – going to a themed party where you can let your hair down and have some fun!
Everybody loves a good dress up, so if you’re planning a party and you’re going to invite all your friends, the best thing to do is think of a cool dress up theme and put your heart and soul into it.
The secret to a successful themed or dress-up party is going all out. It’s really not something you can leave until the last minute, so think up some good ideas and get the ball rolling!
Here are 4 great ideas for themed parties.
- Dress Up as Something Starting with the First Letter of Your Name
This is a fun one because you’re bound to get a lot of variety. It can be something associated with your name or a nickname, or just something completely arbitrary. For instance, if your name is Tom, you could dress up as a Tomato, Tom Hanks, a tree, a tiger or anything else starting with a T – get creative!
Another cool thing about this theme is that it’s a great ice breaker for party guests. If people don’t know each other, guessing what they’re dressed up with is a fun way to learn each other’s names and strike up a conversation.
- Great Gatsby
A classic, everybody loves a Gatsby themed party. Go back to the era of flapper dresses and arm length gloves. This prohibition-era theme will ensure that everybody dresses up – both the men and the women – and looks great while doing it!
Gatsby is the perfect theme if you’d like your party to err on the side of sophistication. Everybody will be dressed relatively formerly, so it’ll make for some great photos.
- Under the Sea
Sure, this is probably one of the most common prom themes from every early 2000s teen movie, but there’s a reason for that. It’s loads of fun and it offers lots of possibilities for decorating.
When it comes to dressing up, guest can choose to simply stick with a colour scheme or get creative and dress up as some kind of marine animal.
- Movie Theme
Just like when you claim an online casino welcome bonus, the possibilities for a winning night are endless. You really can’t go wrong. Pick your favourite movie – preferably one that’s relatively well known, Like Lord of the Rings or Star Wars – and get all your friends to dress up as their favourite characters.
The nice thing about picking a movie is that people tend to think outside of the box. Sure, some will pick the main characters, and that’s great! But there will always be somebody who chooses an obscure and character but hits an absolute home run, and that’s the best part.
By picking a movie theme, you could go in the direction of something formal or more fun – the world is your oyster.
