Theme parties
« on: March 28, 2010, 07:29:14 PM »

I couldn't really think of where else to put this.


I know some people don't really like theme parties because you have to make a costume and it's effort but I love em.
I want to know what kind of theme parties you have been to or just ideas for a theme party.
I recently went to a 'Pirate party' and it turned out awsome. There was food served in a treasure chest and a sign that said 'The Black Pearl Gurl'

For my birthday in June if I have a party it will be a cowboy themed party.
Within the next two weeks my friend will be hosting a Cher party, we will listen to Cher music and play a game in which we match pictures to era's (If you can think of more Cher things please tell me)

I also plan at some point to have the following parties:
Wig party
90's party
Ghetto party
Ridiculous shirt party
Colour party (Dress head to toe in on colour)

I went to a heroes and villains night the other night. Someone also said something about a party where you have to dress as a hero/villain that you've made up.

I think I'll do this.

Oooh that sounds like fun!

My friend once had a birthday that was themed "cross-dressing pirate zombies". She's bad with decisions.

I just had a green party for my 21st. Everyone had to wear as much green as possible, and all the decorations and whatnot were green. I tried to get as much green food and drink as I could.

I went to a Mad Hatter's tea party last year. Where everyone had to wear a crazy hat, and there was a looong table and we all had to sit and drink alcohol from teapots and teacups. I thought it was a pretty sweet idea!

I would have rocked that, I own so much green it's not even funny.

(Tinkerbell's rack looks silicone-enhanced.)

I love themed parties. I've been to the following:

A guacamole party (everyone brought guacamole. My girlfriend and son and I made shirts.)
A pocket-food party (foods included: samosas, dumplings, pierogie, other stuff I can't remember. There was also a papier-mache samosa people could put on their heads and have their picture taken).
Murder mystery party (it took place in the 1920s... there were lots of flapper and gangster costumes).
Clue party (we dressed up as the characters from the game/movie and played the game).
Apple pie party (this was mostly because Amber had too many apples and couldn't eat them all herself).

Halloween is only once a year and thats not enough! :P

I always try to convince my friends to have theme parties, but they never do. Looks like I'm gonna have to throw one. I'll keep checking this thread for good ideas :P

I had a Victoriandustrial/Steam Punk sweet sixteen almost a year ago. It was fun. My friend and I made a dress that was similar to one of the more popular dresses you see in pictures of Emilie Autumn, and my mom went through a steam punk obsession for about two weeks.  :D

I've also been to an Alice themed party (my friend dressed mannequins up as the Queen's guards), and a Broadway themed one (different friend made the tables themes of different musicals she liked at the time). And my sister/best friend is having a Star themed sweet sixteen, which I'm really excited about! ^ - ^

Oh, and another friend of mine isn't into planning parties, so she's having a pool party for her sweet sixteen and is telling everyone to dress as outrageously as possible (which means I'll probably wear obscenely high heels and enough makeup to get ruined by the water. Yayy)

I had a space-themed 18th birthday, complete with a cut out of captain kirk. I was dressed as Dr. Who (if he were an american girl ....).
Otherwise I haven't been to many themed parties.
I love the idea of them though. I just don't know a lot of people that would participate.
