So I'm kind of a big fan of the theme party. I don't know, maybe it stems from my college days, but give a good party, a great theme and it's just that much more fun. And the FB pictures will be that much better... you thought about it. Don't lie.
Base it around your favorite decade, like a Depression (Recession hello?) Era 30's party, and awesome 80's theme party, or a swingin' 60's party, or if you're a pop-culture fanatic like I am, opt for your favorite TV show or movie as your theme. I threw a Glee themed party (Admittedly a total Gleek) when the finale aired back in June, and we had a blast.
I know there are a lot of Mad Men fans out there, so I have a feeling there will be more than one Mad Men theme parties planned for Sunday's premiere. Who doesn't want to throw on a cute patterned shift dress, and some red lipstick and put on your best Joan Holloway to your hubby's Don Draper. Oh, and if you really want to get a good idea of what you should wear to your Mad Men Party... just go "Mad Men" yourself at AMC's website.
This is me a la Mad Men...
And this is Mad Men Melissa....
Way too much fun.
Speaking of TV premieres... the other craziness set to premier this week... how about a quick trip to the Jersey Shore? Yes, I know. This show is completely insane. It is. I know. HOWEVER, you have to admit, that throwing a Jersey Shore theme party, might turn up some AMAZING outfits, and a pretty memorable party. Just make sure you get your tan on the week before (or use a ton of bronzer), and there is plenty good ,music for ample fist pumping. Seriously, these are the hottest Greek life theme parties on college campuses now. Why should they have all the fun?
And finally, what's a theme party post without Twilight?
Team Jacob, or Team Jacob... come together (on one thing) and throw a Twilight inspired party for any of three movies as the theme. Eclipse Theme parties, Twilight theme parties and New Moon parties are popping up all over, and people are throwing Twilight inspired parties all over. Or wait until Halloween, and throw it then. Either way, there are plenty of fun and unique ideas that you can do yourself that won't cost a fortune and will definitely impress your fellow twihards.
Playing dress up isn't just for kids. Go plan a theme party, and get your dress up on.
