If you are planning a party, you need to have a theme, if you don’t, how will you know how to decorate it appropriately? Whether you are planning on a huge scale such as for a wedding or a school prom, or a smaller gathering for a child’s birthday party, having a theme can also help people know how to dress appropriately.
Dressing for a party
If you need something smart you might want to consider browsing NA-KD UK where you will find clothing to suit all tastes. From the classic little black dress to more casual separates, you can even pick up some accessories like matching shoes and bags to complete the ensemble.
If there was a fancy-dress theme for the party, then clothing choices are wide open. You can go as your favourite Disney character, TV personality or as one of the more generic but very popular choices such as fireman or nurse. In this instance, the occasion would determine the decorations rather than the theme.
Decorating for occasion
If you are decorating for the occasion rather than to fit in with the theme of the party then you are sure to have plenty of options, for example, a male child’s birthday party may be decorated to suit the child’s likes such as Cowboys, Pokemon, or Harry Potter, while a female child’s party might be Disney Princess, or based around a certain colour such as pink or purple or even have a bouncy castle to play in. The downside to planning the decorating for a child’s party is that they can change their mind and their likes and dislikes on a whim. What they like this week might not still be the flavour of the month next week.
For the grown-ups, the decoration might be more subtle than it would be for a child’s party. While some adults would still love to have a go on the bouncy castle out in the garden, inside the home or venue should match the theme. If you decided you were throwing a Monte Carlo themed party, people would dress in evening wear, and some of the decorations would include casino games tables and slot machines. If it was a warmer day and the theme was a pool party, then the decorations might include poolside barbeques and tiki hut style bars.
Decorating for someone else
If the party is for someone else and you have been asked to help with the decorating, make sure you are clear on what theme or what style they want, you definitely don’t want to be the one giving modern touches to a 1920s themed party night!
The most important thing though is to have fun, what is the point of spending time organising the party, meticulously decorating and finding the right things to wear when you are not enjoying yourself?
