Plan The Decorations
No themed party is complete without the right decor. Make sure that as you prepare for your party, you plan out the decorations. Whether you choose to purchase everything or you want to go the do-it-yourself route, take some to consider what you will need long before the big day arrives.
The best way to plan out your decor is to focus on where the party will be held. Will everyone be hanging out in the backyard? Will people be spending a lot of time in your living room? Once you determine where most of your partygoers will hang out, focus on how to decorate the space. From hanging a fishing net on your wall to purchasing tiki torches for your backyard, get creative with how you can turn the space into a beachside oasis or ship themed
Create A Drink And Food Menu
Once you know how you plan to decorate your space, start focusing on the drink and food menu. Do you plan to provide everything yourself? Will you ask guests to pitch in any way? Take the time to create a clear directive for your menu so that there is no shortage of food and libations the day of the event.
Don’t forget, as much as your decorations contribute to the theme of your party, your menu does as well. Look for fun ideas for snacks and beverages that help make your theme shine through. From pirate punch to mermaid cupcakes, have fun putting together your menu.
Send Out Themed Invites
Make sure that once you have put together a great theme and menu you send out invites that express to your party goers what the theme is. Whether you opt to send out an event invite through social media or you physically mail invitations, include important information, such as the following:
- Date, time, and location
- The theme details (e.g. Pirate’s Cove, everyone come in costume)
- Whether or not your guests should bring food or drinks
- Whether or not you require RSVP
