Party Planning Ideas: Unique Party Themes For Adults

Your party may have a theme as simple as the color Teal or as detailed as a Retro cocktail party, complete with Snack People!  Regardless, the theme is central to your event’s continuity and distinction.

Whether your theme is inspired by a guest of honor, holiday, event or other purpose, it will serve as your guiding reference for planning party invitations, flow, decorations, lighting, cocktails and music.

We've organized a wide variety of party themes to get your creative juices flowing. You're invited to peruse our evolving list of party themes below, or click on a section to jump ahead...

Guest of Honor Themes

Although you may be hosting a party for the guest of honor, choose a theme that everyone will enjoy and remember. For example, a Birthday Luau or Pink Flamingo Birthday is much more creative and memorable than an Over the Hill party.

If you want to relate the theme to the birthday boy or girl, instead of a 30th Birthday Party, throw a “Bon Voyage 29 Party” or simply use the guest of honor’s favorite color as your theme.  Here are some ideas for inclusive birthday party themes specific to the guest of honor, I'm sure you can think of more:
  • Favorite Color –Color theme
  • Birth Decade or Year – 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s
  • XX and still hot! – Mexican Fiesta theme
  • Bon Voyage XXs – Nautical theme
  • Magical XXth – Magic theme
  • Favorite TV show or movie – Specific TV or movie theme
And remember, every theme can be adapted with a few extra touches and surprises for the birthday boy, anniversary couple, graduate, divorcee, bachelorette, or honoree.  See Birthday Considerations for details.

Once you have chosen a theme, you are ready to put together your guest list and invitation.
