6 easiest theme party ideas

Posted by John Smith on May 12th, 2016

Everyone loves a party and themes a great way to create an instant feeling of connection between the guests. It’s also a good conversation starter between guests who don’t know each other well. It takes a little bit more effort but it’s fun and in the end it’s well worth it. Here are some ideas that don’t require a lot of effort to produce great results.

  1. Hawaiian

It is cheesy but there’s a reason why it’s used so much. Props are easy to make or cheap to buy and anyone can pull out a costume from their wardrobe since all they need is summer clothes. Here are the key ingredients you need to incorporate:

  • Flower garnets
  • Umbrellas and fruit pieces in drinks
  • Hawaiian shirts
  • Tropical fruit
  • Beach items
  • Sand
  1. Americana

It’s easy for Americans because it’s simple to get a hold of typical American items. Most are probably in your home and you can get others very cheaply if needed. The theme colours are of course red, white and blue. What you will need:

  • Items with flag symbols
  • A lot of lights
  • Pizza
  • Red cups
  • American beer
  • Doughnuts
  1. Spring

No need to only do this in spring. It’s super fun to throw a spring party in the middle of winter to have people forget about the cold and snow. Bring out the spring dresses and light shirts. Just remember to turn up the heating. You will need to incorporate:

  • A lot of flowers and greens
  • Bird ornaments
  • Picnic food and picnic decorations
  • A lot of floral colours and patterns
  1. Superhero

Since superheroes are very popular right now this is the perfect time to use them as your theme. Items to use are plentiful and your guests will have a lot of fun coming up with their super hero name, powers and costume. And everyone can make a costume out of their own clothes. For decoration you should use:

  • Masks
  • Comic books
  • Bold colours
  • Props from famous super heroes
  • Name drinks to reference super powers
  • Use napkins, plates, cutlery etc. for children’s parties with superhero motifs
  1. Pyjama

It sounds silly but it’s actually very fun and people find it easy to relax. The idea of it is comfort. Just be careful to not make everyone too comfy so they don’t fall asleep after a few drinks. Pyjamas are of course a must. You should use:

  • Pillows and cushions everywhere
  • Drinks from mugs
  • Marshmallows
  • Feathers
  • Night theme décor (stars, moon etc.)
  • Nightlights
  1. Period themes

You can use any period in time but obviously the last few decades are the most popular and easy to use. Especially if your guests grew up in the era you’re using. It should be pretty easy to throw together and would be very nostalgic for some. People tend to remember the time when they were younger and they loosen up. Use whatever items and décor you remember or know to have been used in that era.
