Whatever the occasion, a themed party can be a lot of fun for guests and hosts alike. You get to pretend you are someone else for a night, and you can dress up as wild and as crazy as you wish. Even if people think you look pretty hilarious or foolish, it’s just a costume, so you have nothing to worry about. Themed parties can be fun, but if you’ve never been to one or thrown one before, you might be at a loss over what themes you can use. Here are a few ideas to choose from, if so.
This one is probably more suited to the people who grew up in the 70s, but bellbottom pants and fringe jackets are back in fashion, so this can be fun for retro-loving youngsters. Afros never went out of fashion at all, so those huge wigs can be fun (or funny) to don with a little comb in the side just like the Motown singers back in the day.
You may have seen these depicted in just about every frat party on TV or in the movies. It certainly doesn’t seem to have gotten old, with people still throwing these parties long after their college careers have ended. It’s the easiest costume to wear too. Just wrap a white sheet around you, pin it up here and there, and voila! You have an instant, cheap costume! This kind of party will be best complemented with the indulgences of the Romans, meaning you’ll probably need some alcohol and plenty of food and mooncake delivery.
This theme is more suited for a sophisticated party, wherein guests get a chance to represent their heritage. A great way to add to the fun is to have each guest bring a traditional dish. You can still log cakes in Singapore or hire caterers, but this can be a fun way to get the guests more involved.
This one is fun for all ages and all occasions. You can even pick a certain kind of movie and have guests dress up like the characters or simply follow the theme of the movie. If you have a general Hollywood theme, people can dress up as their favorite actors and actresses from any Hollywood era. So you may find Marilyn Monroe talking to Johnny Depp at the bar
If you’re not afraid a little friendly competitive teasing, you can always have a sports party. This is especially fun if you want to throw a party for a major world sports final or other competition. Guests don’t have to be fans of the teams that are playing, but they can still dress up as their favorite players or in their team jerseys and join in all the fun.
These are just five of the most entertaining themed parties you can easily organize and throw.
