Why Theme At All?

Theming has become popular in recent years as it has been the vehicle or means through which party hosts can express their individuality, sense of fun and provide their guests the opportunity to escape their daily routines and pressures.
Most importantly, it adds an often hugely valuable 'extra layer' to any party, to almost guarantee guests will have a riot!
Theme parties are often the most memorable. Especially those for which every last detail has been planned and executed meticulously.
This can involve every stage of the party - from the invitations to the choice and style of entertainment, from the drinks menu to the food, the colour scheme and décor to choice of furnishings.
Marquees - Ideal for theming
- They are a blank canvas
- They can have a high roof height, and a frame construction is ideal for rigging, backdrops, sets and lighting effects
- They are infinitely adaptable and flexible, allowing for different areas or 'zones', levels and configurations. Marquees do not have to be singular and boring, they can be multi-zoned 'complexes'
- They provide a longer build and dismantlement schedule than most fixed venues
There is no limit to themes you can have for your party. Books have been written on ideas for theme parties, and even these can only touch the surface. Very broadly speaking themes can be brought into a handful of 'categories':
- Film/TV: e.g. 007, Austin Powers, Toy Story etc
- Era/Historical: e.g. Victorian, Stone Age etc
- Location/Geographical: e.g. Caribbean, Jungle, Russian, Wild West
- Colour: e.g. Black and White, Pink etc
- Children's Themes: e.g. Bob the Builder, Barbie etc
- 'Whacky': e.g. Back to Front Party (start with dessert, end with canapés etc), Rubick's Cube Party (guests arrive in 6 different colours, but must end the evening in the same colour...!)
- Miscellaneous/General: e.g. Fairground, Heaven & Hell etc
- Your own completely original theme
Choosing the theme can be as much fun as executing it. However, always be aware that too specific or unusual a theme can often phase your guests, especially if they do not understand it, or it is so specific that they do not have room for manoeuvre with costumes etc. If you can produce a sufficient list of theme ideas yourself then it could be a winner. Even if you love a theme but can only think of half a dozen tangible theme ideas to suit it then it may be too restrictive.
