Are you planning a themed party? Whether it’s for a birthday or as part of a promotion, a lot of work goes into making this type of event look just right. The most important thing is getting your guests interested and excited to be involved! Once you have that sorted, the rest of the party should all fall into place.
Don’t Wait too Long to Choose Your Theme
Picking out what you want your theme to be is the most important part of planning this type of party, so there’s no use putting it off until the last minute. Discuss possible themes as a group – whether it’s part of a committee or just your group of friends. You’re looking for a theme that everyone will enjoy and be enthusiastic about. As well as this, you need to choose a theme that will be easy for you to organise and decorate for. There’s no point in choosing something that’s too out there, as people always expect big things at themed parties, so you don’t want to leave them disappointed.
Do Send Invites
If you are looking people to go to your themed party, the best way to do this is through personalised invites. Ditch the WhatsApp group message – we all know how easy it is to ignore these. You want to be able to post or hand-deliver a physical invite that’s related to your theme. Something that your friends can stick to their fridge and enter into their calendars straight away. Even sending a personalised email in the form of a card is better than the generic social media invite. Something that specifically names the person invited will always get a better reception.
Don’t Underestimate the Need for a Good Venue
While you might be busy planning the ins and outs of how to really make your theme come alive, it can be easy to overlook the need for a great venue to facilitate all of this. If you are having a party that you can’t accommodate in your own home, then you are going to need a venue that you can transform into a room that encapsulates your theme. Think about how you can use the architecture of a venue to your advantage and use that to help you narrow down your search. There are loads of great themed venues for hire in London that will suit a range of different party ideas.
Do Encourage Costumes
If you are having a themed event, with all of the bells and whistles, then it just won’t be the same if all of your guests turn up in their usual party gear. Make wearing a costume mandatory to attendance. This will actually encourage many people to become even more excited about the event. After all, who doesn’t love dressing up? It gives a chance for everyone to use their imagination, and if you promise prizes for a few of your favourite costumes, then you’re sure to tap into people’s competitive spirit as well.
Don’t Forget about Décor
If you want your themed party to be the talk of the town then you’re going to have to get the décor right. Any time something has a definite theme, you can never do too much when décor is involved. This doesn’t mean that you have to cover every available surface however. By going big on décor, we mean big on detail, not necessarily quantity. If you can show that you’ve really thought out how to transform your venue into the perfect space for a themed party, then this will show. It’s the little details that guests will be most entranced with and that they will remember long after the party is over.
Do Have Party Bags
The best parties are the ones where you get a gift just for turning up. Having party bags gives your guests something that immediately gets their attention and starts the night off on a good note. When they are all kept to theme, this will cause hilarity and help everyone get in the mood. Have a mixture of items that can be brought home as mementos and ones that are going to add to the party and be instantly entertaining. For example, if it’s a disco theme then glowsticks are a must and novelty bandanas can be used for a variety of different themes.
Don’t Overdo the Party Games
Everyone loves a good party game, and they can be amazing icebreakers for a group of people that don’t know each other and are just trying to get into the party mood. However, it’s important that these are scheduled and good times throughout the night when people are going to be ready for a bit of added entertainment. All of your guests will also need time to mingle amongst themselves and get chatting to each other, so games shouldn’t go on for too long or be scheduled back to back – people will easily get bored in this case and wander off to do their own thing. Remember, there is such a thing as too many activities, so keep them sparing!
Do Take Loads of Pictures
In order to make sure that everyone has brilliant memories of your themed party, having a professional photographer there to take loads of snaps is a must. Another great idea is to install a photobooth at the venue so that others can take their own pictures with all of their friends. Making sure that the photos are available as soon as possible after the event on social media is important if you want everyone to get tagging and chatting about the party afterwards. If you’ve got some really good pictures, why not send out some high-res copies of them for people to print and enjoy?
Once you have your theme sorted, the rest of you party planning should be a breeze. Just remember that attention to detail is important and to give your guests some breathing room in between activities to simply dance and have a good time!
