I often get requests for suggestions for themed events. These types of events are very popular for seminars and client appreciations because they add a touch of fun. I wouldn’t recommend them for every situation but certainly, if a themed event is done well and professionally, it can show your audience your creativity, personality and attention to detail.
Here are some ideas for themes:
- Baseball (or a sport that is currently in season)
or a particular movie (Indiana Jones) Hollywood
- Travel or select a particular country
- Island –
- Holidays such as July 4th – stay clear of religious holidays
- Rock and Roll of the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s
Themes can be carried out in invitations, food, décor and attire. Check party rental stores, party stores and even toy stores for ideas and props. Keep your event professional and in good taste, no matter what theme you select.
