1. Pick the ‘Right’ Theme
A big part of planning a successful themed party is choosing the “right” theme. There are themes that will ignite your creativity. Examples of these types of themes could be Luau, Mexican Fiesta and Wild Wild West themes. These ideas have stood the test of time; therefore, finding decorations and other essential items should be a breeze! Other themes, however, can leave you struggling to find décor and simply fail to get your creative juices pumping. Try to choose a theme that makes “theming” fun and creative yet simple.
2. Pick the ‘Right’ Venue
Planning a themed party can be easy if you have the right venue! Do you have a rustic theme? Explore rustic venues. Do the same for a more contemporary theme. The more you can make your venue “fit the theme”, the more realistic it will be! Our client made use of the space they owned to host their fundraising event. Although this venue doesn’t naturally have an “Around the World” feel, our client made amazing use of décor to dress it up.
3. Themed Activities & Entertainment
Entertainment that coincides with your décor will elevate the look of your event. Do you have a Mexican Fiesta theme in mind? Hire a mariachi band. 007 theme? Casino games would be perfect!
