1.     Choose a suitable theme

The first step to planning a themed party is choosing the right theme. Think of the themes that will ignite creativity and the decor pieces to go by. Consider your guests, their interests and preferences and go for a theme that will mean fun to everyone.

Examples of themes to go for include; rustic, fiesta, Mexican or Holywood. You can also go for superheroes, decades, beach parties and more. However, if planning London themed party nights, for race nights or casino or pub ganes, you need professionals to help you.

2.     The venue is key!

Venue matters a lot, and it should go hand in hand with your theme. You will likely have a successful event when you use the right venue. For instance, choose a rustic venue to complement your theme if you go for a rustic theme. Also, have professionals to help you decide on the most suitable décor and party accessories to spruce up the party.

3.    Plan for fun activities & entertainment 

Having the right theme and venue may not be enough. Plan for the right activities to keep your guests entertained. Hire the right band and team, and you will have an endless list of ideas no matter the type of event. The activities will depend on the party theme and the type of guests invited. However, you can adapt ideas such as;

Costume Contest: Encourage guests to dress up as per the theme and hold a contest to determine the best costume.

Trivia Games: Create trivia games related to the theme and award prizes to the winners.

Photo booth: Have a photo booth with props related to the theme. Have guests take photos and share them with friends or on social media.

DIY Activities: Provide materials for guests to make their themed crafts or decorations.

4.    Theme your food and beverages

Consider food and beverages that match your party theme. Also, be ready to explore new ideas that will make your event stand out and keep your guests entertained. For instance, for a Mexican fiesta party, consider the following;

  • Tacos with fillings like beef, chicken, or fish.
  • Quesadillas with cheese, vegetables, and chicken or beef.
  • Chips and salsa, guacamole, and queso dip.
  • Mexican beer and tequila shots.

For Hawaiian Luau Party, think of;

  • Pineapple and ham skewers.
