While parties and celebrations don’t have to have a specific theme, very often they do. Sometimes, the theme is related to the particular person or occasion being celebrated or honored at the party or event, but theme parties can also be totally spontaneous and random. Western theme parties are quite common, which are based on the cultural-historical stereotypes of the American “Wild West”; there are also Christmas theme parties that are generally celebrated around Christmas time and may or may not have religious themes and decorations; some people like theme parties based on a particular decade of the recent past.
An essential element of theme parties is proper theme party decorations (venue and decorations are, by the way, crucial to planning parties in general, not just theme parties). The goal should be to create an atmosphere through which the theme can be represented to the participants in a fun, engaging, tasteful, and authentic way. Theme party decorations can really make or break the party! Don’t worry though—there are lots of theme party resources out there for anyone planning parties, regardless of how much party planning experience you have.
