Whenever I’m planning a party, the first thing I do is choose a theme. Partly because it makes it so much easier for me to plan the rest of the party (I can then simply choose food, drinks and decorations to loosely fit the theme) but mainly because I know that most people l-o-v-e themed parties!
There are a lot of fun party ideas out there, many of them perfect for kids or college parties, but if you’re looking for something a bit more grown up than a Frozen theme and more unique than a classic Toga shindig, here are my top 50 party themes for adults:
