# 1 Classic Board Game Night
Invite the adults over for a night of classic board games. This party theme allows for endless possibilities when it comes to planning and preparation. You can go all out and require guests to dress as their favorite board game characters, provide board game themed appetizers, and decorate your house to resemble your favorite game. Or if you are looking for something more low key then just invite over your friends for an easy breezy fun night of games, snacks, and drinks.
#2 D.I.Y Party
This party theme is for the crafty and creative. Host an evening of D.I.Y projects ranging from painting to sewing to building. This party is perfect for those people who have those friends that are constantly raving about your creativity and always saying "I wish I was creative like you." D.I.Y parties allow you to share your talent with your friends.
But wait. what if you aren't crafty and want to learn something new, then host a party with someone else teaching the craft. There are a number of different types of local sip and paint studios offering nightly classes and in some cities you can even find just a general D.I.Y studio that offers other types of craft classes.
Also, there are different craft kits you can buy online in order to host your own D.I.Y party. Amazon offers a variety of different kits from candle making to string art. Another great place to find craft kits is at AdultsandCrafts.com. This company allows you to purchase individual craft kits and party packs. Each kit comes with all the materials and instructions needed to complete the D.I.Y project. Cost is around $20-$25 per person.
#3 Movie Night
Movie night is another party theme that can be as simple or as elaborate as you make it. You can invite your friends over to watch movies on your big screen tv in your living room while nibbling on popcorn and candy. Or you can invite over your neighbors and friends for a backyard screening of your favorite movie, complete with blankets, pillows, popcorn, and drinks. Or, if you are feeling really ambitious then have a movie theme party where all your guests come dressed as their favorite movie characters and require them to stay in character all throughout the party. Then at the end of the night hand out prizes for best dressed and best character rendition.
A masquerade party themed party is sure to delight guests. This theme usually works best for a larger party, but could also be a twist on a classic Halloween party. Invite your guests to come dressed in their fanciest attire donning a mask to express their personality. Don't forget to provide extra masks for those guests who forget. Decorate with twinkle lights, glitter and gold. Serve savory appetizers, elegant desserts, and a signature cocktail. Then dance the night away!
#5 Murder Mystery
This final party theme is one your guests won't forget. A murder mystery sparks the imagination and thrills the senses. Before the party begins send out invitations and a character synopsis to each guest. Let the guests know they are invited to a murder mystery and must play their part in order for the party to be a success. Once guests arrive the fun begins. The host will explain how the evening will proceed then it is up to the guests to mingle and sleuth. Before long the murder will happen. In walks the detective and the questioning begins. It is up to guests to listen, mingle, and deduce. Finally, the evidence is collected and guests make their accusations. Who will solve the mystery?
I suggest purchasing a murder mystery game/kit to assist with your party. These games can me found on amazon. You can also download puzzles from Etsy or head on over to Night of Mystery to purchase a murder mystery complete party.
What theme will you choose?
Hope your next party is one your guests will remember!
