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.

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!

(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.

I debated, for a short time, having a Star Trek themed sweet sixteen, and getting everyone Spock ears. :P

I'm going to a 70s Disco night on saturday - should be a lot of fun.  Still working out what I'm going to wear, but that's the fun part.

I've been to a 60s themed party, a pirates party, a 'sporting icons' party and a masquarade ball.  They were great. 

I'd like to have a medieval themed party and a 'famous fictional characters' party.

I'd love to have themed parties but I don't know many people who are into that stuff :( I actually know people who refuse to dress up for HALLOWEEN parties!

I had a 70s theme for my 16th though, we listened to my geeky collection of bowie vinyl, watched the rocky horror picture show and ate retro sweets and 70s cocktails. There were still a couple of people who refused to dress up though and one girl spent the whole party moaning that she hated the music and couldn't we listen to something modern (she wanted the jonas bros or n-dubz).

I'd love either a Cabaret themed party or a masquerade ball though!

As last night was the season finale of RuPaul's Drag Race, my friend hosted a drag queen party. We each dressed up and donned a drag queen name (I was Vivian Shimmer - we also had Lucky Cheng, Mary Pimpins, Connie Lingus, among others), and we had a quiz about this season of the show during the commercials and a pool for who would be the next drag superstar. Good times.

I had a Cabaret-themed graduation party, and every year for the past two years we have a House M.D party where we all pick names from a hat to see which character we have to be. Also, we occasionally have a fancy party where we dress up, drink tea and eat finger sandwiches.
I think Comfortable party was my favorite, though.

Goodness, I have too many theme parties, and now that I reflect upon it, they're all based around Tim Burton movies...I need to get more creative.

I'm currently building and making my decorations for a Sleepy Hollow murder mystery. My list of requirements to complete the party goes on and on, but eh, it should all turn out. I just need lots of pumpkins, skulls, heads, ect....And to finish getting the actual murder mystery together....

One time at a party, we decided everyone should take off their pants.

Also:

Mustaschio Bashio - all the guys grow mustaches before the party.
Cheesy dance music party - we only play epically cheesy dance music
open mic party- host an open mc where musician friends/poets/whatever do their thing at some point in the night

I haven't been to a whole lot of theme parties. I do go to a Zombie Pub Crawl. I've wanted to go to the Edwardian Ball but I usually work that day and don't have anything to wear.

I went to a "wear something you never have the chance to wear" party. There's always that ONE outfit in your closet that you never wear because you never have the "right" occasion to wear it. So have a party!

Someone just posted on FB that they were having a "letter party" and the letter they chose was H. So basically you show up as something or someone that stars with an H. So...horse...hipster...Hannibal Lecter...Hannah Montana...Hillary Clinton...

I suppose he's hoping for lots of HOs, though. I would be the Hamburglar!
