It’s no secret that the perfect party theme can take your party from basic to creative and fun. But it is one of the most difficult parts of planning a party. Throwing a party can be expensive, with the average American spending slightly over $1,400 on a party, and a theme can play a part in how much you want to spend. Apart from figuring out your finances, finding inspiration for the perfect theme can quickly become stressful. Fortunately, this article is here to inspire and help you find the best theme for your next big party. Are you ready to throw the most memorable party?


  • Arabian nights theme

If you’re organizing a celebration and want vibrant colors, delicious and sumptuous food, and amazing entertainment, you should think about going for an Arabian night theme. You will need to start with a tent of your preferred size. The kind of tent you choose depends on the number of guests you plan on having and the location of your party. Marquees, yurts, or dome tents are all ideal examples. Your decor will inform your guests about your theme, and it’s one of the first things they will notice. Use vibrantly-colored props such as pillows, candles, lanterns, curtains, and potted plants. Any items that will make your guests feel like they are in the Middle East should suffice. 

To take your theme up a notch, you can play some beautiful Arabian music. You can also include belly dancers to add extra excitement to your event and a henna station. This theme is perfect for birthday parties and weddings. 


  • Masquerade ball theme


A masquerade ball theme is an excellent option if you want a more sophisticated and mysterious theme. With a party planner or thorough research, you can plan the perfect masquerade ball with the right décor. You will need lots of candles in different shapes and sizes and dangling lights. You also need to choose a color scheme that fits your ball’s theme. You should consider using color combinations like royal blue and canary yellow, gold and red, black and white, and silver and white. Use vases for your centerpieces with beautiful flowers or feathers. Don’t be afraid to use a lot of glitter or sequins for your tabletops. 

Keep your dress code formal and get your guests into the theme by providing them with masks to add to the mystery of the night. For an extra touch of luxury, you can include a chocolate fountain that would wow your guests. You can also play fun games like murder mysteries to add to the anonymity this theme provides. 


  • Cinco de Mayo theme


Cinco de Mayo is a special day in Mexico that commemorates Mexico’s victory against the French in the Battle of Puebla in the mid-19th century. Over the years, it has become a popular party theme for both Mexicans and non-Mexicans. It would be best to have the right decorations when planning a Cinco de Mayo-themed party. Ideally, you must aim for a fiesta vibe, including bright colors and many string lights in your decorations. Use colorful flowers in yellow, red, and green shades for your tabletops. You can also use brightly-colored plates and cutlery that match your theme. You should also ensure that your menu- drinks and food- properly reflect your party theme.

No Cinco de Mayo party theme is complete without a classic piñata. You can fill this décor piece with little treats and have your guests attempt to break the piñata in a fun party game. This party theme is perfect for birthday parties and fun dinner parties. There are several other Cinco de Mayo party ideas for kids and adult parties to include in your theme. 


  • ‘90s theme


There are many reasons why throwing a 90s-themed party is an excellent idea. One of the best reasons is because of how entertaining it is. It’s the perfect opportunity to go back in time and relive the past. There are tons of activities to include in this themed party, including setting up a classic photo booth, playing retro games, and having a 90s dance-off. You can serve up some delicious snacks and meals popular in the 90s. 

To stick with the theme, ensure your décor is reminiscent of the 90s. Have your guests show up in their best 90s clothes, including busy geometric patterns, bucket hats, and bright tracksuits.

These are just a few of the many party themes you can incorporate into your next big celebration. These tips will inspire you to create the perfect theme for your next big party with any luck.
