So you want to host a party – that’s great! But what kind of party do you want to host? Lots of your friends may have been getting into the whole “wine and cheese” party thing, but you want to do something a little different and a little more exciting. So what sorts of party themes can you enjoy as an adult? Which ones are worth the time and money investment? Here’s a look at three of the most popular types of party themes for adults that you can try out, either with kits or with your own creative ideas.
Hawaiian Luau or Tropical Theme
If you want to feel like you’ve hit the beach or gone away to a tropical location, you can have a ton of fun with a luau or tropical island theme. You can have an old fashioned pig roast or make up some delicious barbequed foods, and you can have all types of bright colors and themed drinks (hurricanes, anyone?). Everyone should get a lei, of course, and maybe even ask people to dress up in costumes! Have a costume party, have some fun places to take pictures with props, and just go all out with what you have. A tropical themed party can make even the coldest days of winter feel a little bit warmer to everyone who is in on the fun.
Murder Mystery Party
Murder mystery parties are a lot of fun for adults because that means that they get to mingle while figuring out difficult puzzles that will help us solve a crime. And who doesn’t want to feel like they are on a crime show or part of the FBI? The good news is, murdermystery.com.au has a murder mystery party kit that you can use in order to throw your own murder mystery party. All you have to do is get the kit, provide the venue, and host the party (or work with one of their hosts that they have trained to run these sorts of events). You can have finger foods as part of the meal, make sure the area is big enough for everyone to move around, ensure that the venue won’t have noise distractions, and then have everyone get their detective hats on. You can do costumes and such for these too, if people want to get creative!
Decade Themed Bashes
Depending on your group of friends, you may have a decade (50’s, 60’s, 70’s, etc) that you feel nostalgic for. If that’s the case, then why not put together a party that allows you and your friends to go back to that decade in style. Play music that is from that era, ask everyone to dress up in outfits that help you kick it back to that time, and even check out some of the most popular foods that were being enjoyed at parties all over the country and world. You can teach dances from that era (or remember them together) and do any other number of things so you can get a little taste of that nostalgia, together.
There are lots of ways that you can pull these sorts of things off effectively. If you take the time to plan them out or get kits that can help you to put them together, you will find that you and your guests will have a great time, no matter what theme you may use. It’s all about getting creative and figuring out the best things for you and your party guests to do and enjoy throughout the entire party. The only thing holding you back is your imagination.
