Theme events are a surefire way to get the message across while giving your guests a blast.

A well planned party should be unforgettable. A theme for that event can add a touch fun and can set the perfect mood. Your theme of course depends on what your event is.

This specific event pictured below is an actual Blacksmith workshop, but if this idea intrigues you, there are definitely ways you can incorporate the idea into your own event.

Rodeo

Rodeo themed events are pretty common but it’s still a crowd puller. It’s fun and can be very easy to set up. You can even ask your guests to dress the part. Channel the wild west theme through these hay seats:

Or this cowboy food station complete with hats and scarves for your guests:

Casino/ Las Vegas

Casino and Las Vegas themed events are always a hit (minus the real showgirls of course). The clue here is to focus on the details. Add in some sparkling casino welcome signs, LED lights and costumed servers! Check out the ideas below.

Put in some authentic card dealing tables and some slot machines. Since this everything is just for the theme, you can limit the bets to make sure everyhing is just for fun.

You could also opt for this casino themed dessert table complete with cards and dice:

Then throw in some showgirls for the authentic Vegas feel. This option should be planned well, according to how formal your event is. You can specify the costumes to be worn if your event is a bit too formal for a normal Vegas number.

Circus/Exhibition

There is nothing that can awe us as much as a circus or an exhibition can. Employing this as a theme at your next corporate event will get you alot of nods and delights from guests. Here’s some inspiration for you:

And there’s not only one, but two acrobats!

As another option, you can set everything up outside and erect real circus tents complete with local circus performers. You can limit the tent size and number for your convenience.


Hollywood

This Hollywood theme will only need a few things to lend it authenticity. Include some fake Oscar statues, a red carpet to welcome guests, the Hollywood sign, movie reels for decor, black and white balloons and of course some walk of fame stars.

Here’s the staple Hollywood sign:

20’s Blast

Feather Boas and a black and white theme can give your party a Great Gatsby feel. You can ask your guests to don some cloche hats and flapper dresses. This event nailed it:

Disco

Disco? DJ’s? How about both of these things at your corporate event? For years the disco theme has been requested for parties across the globe. You can throw in some glittery decor, disco lights and perfectly positioned food stations disguised as bars. This one completed the disco look with a checkered dance floor:

Throw in a DJ booth complete with your guests’ favorite hits. You can make a list of songs they want to hear ahead of time by asking guests to name their favorite songs on their RSVP cards.
