If you’re getting ready to throw a themed party but aren’t sure how to go about this or where to start, you’ll be glad to know that there are a few areas of party planning that can help you turn any old get-together into a full-on themed party. To help you see how this can be accomplished for the party that you’ll be throwing soon, here are three things to remember when throwing a themed party.
Get Your Guests Invested, Too
If you’re going through the trouble of putting together a themed party, the last thing you want to have happen is for your guests not to have just as much fun as you are. So to help ensure that everyone enjoys themselves at the party, you’ll want to find a way to get them invested in the theme, too.
One simple way to do this is to encourage everyone to dress in the theme of the party. By having guests come already in the attire of the theme, you can help them get invested in the theme well before the party even starts. As they get their costume together, they’ll get excited to share their creation with others and participate in everything you’ve put together for your themed party.
Your First Impression Is Everything
People’s first impression of your themed party will set the tone for the entire night, so you want to be sure that their first glimpse of your party represents that theme exactly as you want it.
To do this, try to make the first impression of your themed party both comfortable and exciting. You don’t necessarily want to shock people when they first arrive, but you do want to include themed elements that will have them instantly feeling the vibe of your party and knowing without question what the theme is. Try to keep the entrance of your party high energy with the right themed music, decorations, people and more.
Let The Theme Guide All Your Choices
As you get everything ready for the day of your themed party, you’ll want to make sure that you have the theme guiding all of the choices that you make for your party. The theme should permeate through everything you include and how you set everything up. Choose samplers of food that represent your theme, music based on the theme, and lighting that showcases your theme. If there’s anything that doesn’t add to the theme, consider removing it so that everything at your party supports the theme and helps your guests have an immersive experience.
If you want to throw a themed party that’s a hit with all of your guests, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you plan everything perfectly.
