You might associate themed parties with your childhood, but themed parties can be great fun for an adult celebration too, and it's likely that it'll be a night to remember. Encourage your friends to get dressed up and get in the spirit of it; be silly and enjoy yourself. Here are some of our favourite themed party ideas.
1. 70s party
It's a classic but that's because it's a good one! Start playing all your favourite 70s tunes and don your favourite garish glad rags. Think flares, flowers and sunglasses. We have some excellent costumes for you, like our 70s Rainbow Hippie costume. Whip up a bowl of punch and go to town on the 70s party favourites. If there was ever a time to make prawn cocktail, now is it!
2. Wild West
If you have never been to a barn dance, this could be your chance to make it happen. The country tunes will have everybody up and dancing and there's nothing like a line dance to get to know your neighbours. Even the most reluctant costumed guest will be able to muster the enthusiasm to unleash their inner cowboy or cowgirl.
We have different Wild West costumes to suit everybody. You can choose from the Wild West Cowboy Kit or pick yourself up a Wild West Poncho. Don't forget the kids either, whether they want to go as rodeo cowgirls or dress up as the finest sheriff in town.
3. Film characters
This is the party for all those Hollywood lovers out there. You can pick the music of your favourite movie soundtrack to dance the night away to. Liven things up with a quiz based on movie trivia or movie style charades. Costume wise, this gives your guests tons of flexibility. Perhaps they will want to dress up as the Beetlejuice Woman or maybe go Grease style with our 1950s Pink Day Dress. For the men, we've got all your favourite superheroes, including Batman, and also the Muppets for a bit of extra fun. For a scary film twist, how about dressing up as Hannibal?
