Planning the Perfect Themed Party | Kelly Hansard

A themed party is a great way to celebrate key events and occasions. It can be a great way to involve everyone and make the event memorable. Bobby McGee’s, a unique event venue in Melbourne, has helped create some of the most memorable themed parties around. They talked about some of their tips and tricks for making the most of themed events.

Use Themed Invitations

It is important to create an invitation that sets the tone for the event and guests. If the event requires a certain dress code, this should be the place to set expectations. Some examples of invitation themes include Disney, retro, Las Vegas, or circus carnival.

Choose a Venue That Will Match the Theme

Before you decide on a venue, make sure that the venue allows you to style the room. Doing so saves a lot of time and money. Also, be sure to ask about the time constraints that you will have to set up the venue. If you are not able to do so, the pressure of organizing the best event ever will be on you.

Ideally, the venue should be central and easily accessible. Before choosing a venue, check if it can be reached by public transport or has car parking. 

Be Sure Venue is Large Enough

The size of the group is also a factor to consider when choosing a venue. It should be able to accommodate guests with varying numbers. If the venue is too big for your event, try incorporating some styling features that can make it feel smaller. For instance, a large backdrop or a clever lighting design can help make the space look bigger.

Immerse Guests in the Theme

The success of a themed event depends on how well the guests are immersed. For instance, if the theme is Hollywood Glitz, make sure the guests feel like they’re in a lavish nightclub. Having the right food is also an important aspect of a successful party.

Not only does it help to serve up good food, but it also adds a fun and unique touch to the event. A signature cocktail is a great way to start the party, but make sure that non-alcoholic drinks are also available.

Encourage Guests to Dress According to Theme

Encourage guests to come in dressed up, which can help build momentum and increase anticipation for the event. This can also help make the day and event more memorable.
