Have a great adult party theme in mind? Here are some ideas to consider when planning your next party:

1. When choosing an adult party theme, consider aspects of your event that will get everyone involved. Costumes, games, and music can all be great ice breakers that help make even the shyest guests feel like part of the action. Having some interactive element at your party is a great way to make it stand out.

2. Send out your invitations at least 2-3 weeks in advance. This gives everyone time to get your event on their calendar and also enough time for your guests to RSVP so that you know how many people will be coming. (It is also helpful to include an “RSVP by” date.)

3. Use your theme to help guide you in your decorations. A great thing about an adult theme party is that most of the time it lends itself to lots of fun decorating ideas! Check out any of the many party themes listed on this page to find lots of themed decoration ideas.

4. Keep the fun going with food and drinks that tie into your theme. What’s a fiesta without margaritas?

5. Get your camera rolling! Themed parties are great for taking photos that your friends will love to have and to share. Crazy Joe in his disco wig and platform shoes? Annie and Kate in a hot dog eating contest? Some memories are priceless! If you capture some great photos at your party, you might consider sending them off to your guests as a follow up to the fun.

6. Enjoy your party. Relax! Know that with a little pre-planning your event will be great. You worked hard and you should enjoy it as much as your guests, so once the celebration begins, mingle, play, and have fun!

There are so many great themes to choose from…enjoy the party!
