Every holiday is a new excuse to party! You might think that any particular holiday is theme enough. But, you can really create something spectacular with a few add touches.

Themed Party Ideas for HolidaysMaybe you're planning a 4th of July dinner. You may think hamburgers and flags are enough. But why not instead have everyone travel back to the posh 1920s or 1950s (or the Posh 1960s as shown in the photo) with an "era" themed party. Imagine what everyone would be wearing if they were dressing for Memorial Day in the year you choose. Or here's another crazy idea: how would everyone be celebrating Memorial Day in the year 2050? No matter what theme you choose, adding your own special touches is what will make your party memorable.

You don't necessarily have to have guests dress the part, but when they do, it makes the theme much more powerful. Some themes are easier to carry out without everyone having to come dressed up. But there are many dress-up themes that don't require guests to plan. For example, cowboy western or hawaiian themes are easy: provide hats or leis to your guests.

If you're in between parties, bored, and wish you could find something to celebrate, then see our Random Holidays page for party ideas.

Incorporating a party theme takes your party from "nice" to "EPIC"!

These unique party ideas will have your guests asking when you’re hosting the next celebration! Hosting a themed party just takes a little inspiration.

Finding Inspiration to Create your Own Party Theme

Sometimes great party theme ideas germinate from one small item: a loved antique dress, a party game, a movie, food, a song, or even a hip piece of furniture.

Parties can be inspired by a mere piece of clothing: my sister had a beautiful antique Mexican dress that she was given.

She used it to inspire a themed summer wedding where everyone dressed in their "loudest" happy clothing and her bouquet was made of brightly colored summer seasonal flowers.

Party ideas can spring to light by cleaning out your closet! Such is the case with purse parties, where each guest brings a gently used handbag to exchange with another guest at the party.

Visit the purse party pages for great ideas on how to make this party a hit for "girl's night in".

Other themed party ideas are inspired by an events such as an engagement party, moving to a new home, or even something as unique as celebrating your home's birthday!

That's right. I had a friend who threw a 100 year birthday party for her house. She had done renovations and wanted to celebrate the completion of her home's face lift.

Hundreds of guests came with potluck dishes and birthday gifts for the home. All were eager to see the home's new updates. There's no reason too small for a great party.

And, of course, we all know that parties can be inspired by an era. The songs, clothing, and even the food of the 1960's and 1980's are often celebrated party ideas.

One friend even took his 1980's theme party to the next level by celebrating the 80's movie, "Ghost Busters". Guests came in Ghostbuster "uniforms", as the beloved, "Marshmallow Man", or as any 1980's character from the movie.

Simple childhood games can also inspire great themed party ideas. Read how to turn simple games, such as scavenger hunts or pin the tail on the donkey into hilarious games for your adult birthday party themes on our Child's Play, Adult Style page.
