Kara Allen from Kara's Party Ideas gives tips on throwing a themed party!"5 tips on throwing a themed party"
1- Chose your theme and color scheme (white, blue & green party). Even themed parties need color schemes so everything matches and flows nicely and is visually stunning.
2- Center your invitation around the party. Think outside the box. Use a party hat as an invitation like this princess party invite...or take a photo of the birthday child in theme matching attire for the invite.
3- Food or Desserts? Decide whether you're serving a meal, or just dessert/cake. You can even replace a cake with cupcakes. It's fun to center your food/dessert around the party theme. I personally like having parties in between meals so you can focus more on fun desserts and treats that match the theme. It also makes planning less stressful if you know your guests have already eaten and you don't have to have a meal prepared for them.
4- Main party table. Put all your main party items in one central location and dress up that table or location to match the theme. Make it the focal point of the themed party . Don't stress about decorating the whole room or the park, for example, where you're having the party.
5- Party favors are a must have. Have fun with them and get creative when it comes to matching them to the theme. Doesn't have to be typical dollar store toys and trinkets. You can make your favors at home!
