Themed parties are a fun way to add a unique spin on a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary. If you’re planning an adults-only celebration at a reception venue, you might be wondering which theme is the most appropriate for the big day. Below are a few ideas for inspiration.
Ways to Make a Memorable Party
1. Las Vegas Night
If you’re inspired by the glitz and glam of Las Vegas, consider a casino-themed party. Set the mood at the reception venue by dimming the lights, setting up blackjack and poker tables, and adding red, black, and gold decorations. Encourage guests to order handcrafted cocktails off the drink menu while mingling.
Hollywood is an elegant theme for any occasion. Invite your guests to dress up in their fanciest cocktail attire and set out a red carpet for their arrival. Black and gold is the classic color palette for this theme; create centerpieces that represent different periods or films in Hollywood history. Consider adding a trivia element to draw out guests’ competitive sides.
3. The 1940s
The 1940s was a patriotic time in the country’s history due to the end of the Great Depression and the involvement in WWII. It also saw the rise of iconic Hollywood films and ragtime jazz. Relive this special time by throwing a 40s-themed party. Decorate with red, blue, and white props. Guests can show up dressed as soldiers or pin-up girls and enjoy some post-Prohibition specialty drinks.
