Tips and Tricks when Picking your Party Theme

With quite a few years of planning parties under my belt, I have found that the right party theme can really set your event apart. Whether you’re planning a child’s birthday bash or a special celebration, here are some tips that will help you pick the right theme for your event.

  1. Start with the Very Important Person
    This should be an obvious one, but from experience I have attended a number of parties where the Birthday child wasn’t consulted about their party theme. Seeing as it’s their party we recommend parents ask the special guest what theme they would like. You just might be surprised by their choice.
  2. Match the Party Theme with the Party Type
    What do we mean by that? By party type we are referring not to the theme but to the overall idea behind the party, for instance; a first Birthday, Quinceañera or Baby shower would be a party type and Dinosaurs, Trucks or Race Cars would be the party theme. Making sure the theme complements the event’s purpose (type) is important when planning a party.
  3. Venue and Seasonal Considerations
    Your party’s location and the season it’s held in should influence your theme choice. If you’re having a boys outdoor party during the summer, a “Pirate” or “Race Car” theme might be perfect. For indoor venues, in Winter you can explore a wider range of themes, like: “Fortnite“, “Harry Potter” or “Minecraft“.
  4. DIY or Go Pro
    One of the big choices is going to be whether you DIY or go with a Professional Party planner. For many parents (myself included) planning the party theme and finding everything the party needs is all part of the fun. But there are of course a lot of Pro’s to hiring a party planner can take the stress off your shoulders and ensure a polished, professionally executed party theme.
