Legendary parties have legendary party themes! What separates a good party theme from a legendary party theme? Specificity.

Your party theme idea should be as specific as you can make it. The more specific you are with your theme, the easier it is to plan your party. Thinking of having a pool party? Great! Expand the theme to be specific as in an 80’s Pool Party. Even then you should take it a step further and be even more specific such as 80’s Neon Pool Party. See the difference? With a pool party, the theme is vague and the vision for your party is weak. With an 80’s Neon Pool Party, you envision bright neon, graphic shapes and big hair! Now you can take that vision and you’ll find it’s easier to get invitations, decorations, food & drink ideas, and party games that all match.

Having trouble thinking of a specific party theme? Here is some inspiration for you!
