It’s no secret that a good theme can take a party from average to wildly creative, fun and jaw-dropping, the world is too dull for us to keep having parties without themes, It’s 2019, and we all deserve a little bit more colour in our parties, and lives. I personally have thrown two parties in my life, for my 18th and 19th birthdays respectively, and they were both without a theme. But will I be making that mistake for my 20th birthday next year?, ABSOLUTELY FREAKING NOT!!!.
I have rounded up my 20 favorite party themes that I would definitely have to choose from for my next year party, and you all should also use them for that next huge celebration and make your party the talk of the town.
1.70′s Disco, 80′s Retro, or 90′s Pop Party Theme.
Everyone loves a good dress-up party so why not get everyone to come dressed in the fashion of the 1980s or as one of their favourite movie stars or celebrities of the decade. You could have your event management team put together a 80s-inspired playlist as well as some brightly-coloured mocktails for the guests to drink whilst dancing the night away to cheesy pop music. Pull out the wigs for a 70′s theme party, or even a 90′s UV party!
2. Game Of Thrones Party Theme.
I personally would give anything to have a Game Of Thrones themed wedding with Swords, Crowns, Hot pies, Fire, Ice, Thrones, Dragons and those amazing GOT wedding vows.
3. Superhero Party Theme.
There is absolutely nothing more powerful than being a superhero, even if it’s just for a day. So, yeah, why not whip up some Spiderman and Wonder woman costumes and put your superhuman powers on display. (No, it’s not just for kids!)
4. Victoria Secrets Angels Party Theme.
I’d honestly give anything to be a Victoria Secrets Angel, and I know lots of people will too, so why not get some sexy lingerie, jaw-dropping stilettos, angel wings and show your inner angel abilities. (You can take your cue from the Kardashians who recently used this theme for a halloween party). This is best for a bridal shower or an all-girl party.
5. Alice in Wonderland Party Theme.
This is a classic theme, usually enamored by bows of red, blue and white drapes, large rose trees, mad hatters, glittery signs, jam tarts, playing cards, giant mushrooms, large clock and chain, sweets and cakes, Alice silhouette, and of course a giant red shoe seat.
6. Casino Party Theme.
Think Cigars, Poker games, Poker tables, Card Decks, Large glittery dollar signs, dollar bills, Elegance, Luxury and Splendour. That’s exactly what a Casino Themed party is going to give to you. The men dressed in dapper suits and the women in fiery evening dresses is sure to have you feeling like actual royalty. (You can also take cues from John Legend’s recent casino themed party for his 40th birthday party).
7. Great Gatsby Party Theme.
When we hear Great Gatsby, we hear affluence and wealth, wine bottles and sequined clothes and that’s exactly what this theme will do for you, It will somehow make you feel like you have transcended from the 21st century into the 19th century Victorian era. The men need to be in bedazzled gorgeous suits and the women in Sequined colourful dresses. (Again, the Kardashians are frequent users of this party theme).
8. Silver Soiree Party Theme.
If you want an evening of entertainment, vintage glamour, and just a hint of tease, A Silver Soiree theme is sure to give that to you, To get the full experience, you need to have short cabaret-style presentations of popular mid-century music and dance.
9. Pool Party Theme.
Ofcourse, a pool party is everyone’s favorite, you are sure to have the best experience lounging by the pool side, right beside the DJ blasting loud pop songs, in your one and two-piece bikinis, while the men strut their toned legs in swimming shorts.
10. Denim & Diamonds Party Theme.
Nothing screams laid-back casual fun like denim, so gather up your old denim skirts, trousers and tees, and have the biggest denim party the world has ever seen. (You can take cues from Gigi Hadid’s Denim Themed 24th Birthday Party). Never forget to splurge on your diamonds.
(P.S. A Denim-made invitation card, laced with diamond crystals is a must).
11. Pyjamas Party Theme.
What better way is there to celebrate your next party than choosing comfort over anything else. Prank-calling, drunk-dialing and pillow-fighting with your favorite people in the world is honestly best done in pyjamas. Kristie Linda Meluso of KMA events suggests gifting “personalized silk pajamas with guests initials, SLIP Silk Eye Masks, Bubbly, etc.” (I’d totally go this way for my bridal shower if i do have one).
P.S. Falling asleep together in one great giant bed, is a MUST.
12. James Bond Party Theme.
As we all know, nothing screams fast cars and badassery like James Bond, so of course if you want to feel like an international spy for just one special day, This needs to be the theme for your next party. You need to have the scene set up with large 007 gold glitter logos, gun barrel backdrop, gold glitter bond ladies, bullion bars, Martini glasses, bond flats, casino signs and card decks.
13. Heaven Party Theme.
Think Cloth drapes in white and sky blue, 3D carved clouds, cherubs and angels, cloud cushions, cloud scenery, cloud banners, white Roman pillars, white swings, flower garlands, small white birds, pearly gates. You can gift everyone, little parcels with miniature wings and heavenly statues, and the gift bags would be labelled, “A Slice Of Heaven” Pure genius! (This is your best bet for a baby shower!)
14. Black-and-White Party Theme.
Nothing screams formal and Quintessential like a Black and white themed party filled with black-and-white satin and voile cloth drapes with black and white feather masks, white Roman pillars, black and white glitter stars, white trees, black chandeliers, and black and white feather hoops. (Btw, this is totally the theme for my wedding).

This is currently a very popular party theme that brings the rich Moroccan feeling to your celebration, Rich shades of red and luxurious gold cloth drapes, large palm trees, desert oasis, Bedouin tent booths, cushions, large pots and baskets, large lanterns, flying carpets, palace scenery. (The men need to have turbans and thawbs on, and the women should be dressed in abayas in order to look the part).

P.S. An Actual Burlesque dance performance needs to happen here!
17. Celebrity Party Theme
This is my favorite, favorite theme cause I’m always looking for an opportunity to dress up like some of my idols (Angelina Jolie, Michelle Obama) etc. A Celebrity theme basically calls for you to dress up like your favorite celebrity, and you can even do this with a partner, and come as famous couples like Beyonce and JayZ, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka or Ellen Degeneres and Portia DeRossi). You can literally dress in any way that makes your heart happy).
