One of the most creative and enjoyable themes for a party is a foreign country! A little foreign flavour is undeniably enticing and you can get incredible turnouts for your party.
A good option is to try an Asian theme. You can choose from a variety of countries like China, Korea, Japan or India. In fact, you can base it around a festival of the particular country. If you plan to celebrate the Chinese New Year, you could have the house decorated professionally or you could do it yourself. You can put up oriental fans and the classic Chinese paper lamps with Chinese calligraphy on it. Using beautiful posters of oriental dragons could make the house look more refreshing. Making sure the home décor is matched in the colours of the Chinese flag and using similar colours like red and yellow to decorate your wall, would add to the charm and authenticity of the themed party. Of course, Chinese cuisine is a hit at any party! Maybe you would like to add a little flavour to it and order a whole course from a nice restaurant instead of the ready to eat noodles at home.
If you are looking for something more Indian, you can try asking everyone to dress up in saris or other Indian outfits. A great idea is to have a henna-drawing session in the party and some authentic Indian make up and glitter. There are a number of good Indian restaurants that you can contact. Some may even be able to provide a lady to apply henna and can help with a number of theme ideas for the party. Not only that, many of them also offer totally planned theme parties in their restaurants with indigenous DJs performing their own mix! It is a great idea to check out for a pre-planned party.
Another popular theme for parties is the Arabian Nights party theme. It is a great ethnic idea to spice up your party and provide a beautiful Mediterranean experience to your guests. This theme is extremely popular not only because of the Arabic experience, but also, because it can provide a magical landscape.
There are many options for fun in this party theme. If you are looking for a simple affair, you can do this by displaying Arabian carpets on the floor with Mediterranean style liquor holders. The guests can be dressed up in harem pants or saris or a beautiful flowy Kaftan. The beautiful Arabian music never goes out of style and the food is simply irresistible!
If you are interested in a more personal party, you can plan a number of games and fun activities. Some of the interesting activities include passing on a Persian lamp and asking everyone to write 3 secret wishes as others try to guess it. A great option is to find beautiful veils for the ladies and headdress for the men to make it an “Arabian Masquerade”. You can try making your décor more in the theme of “Arabian Nights” with flying carpets, genies and the traditional carpets.
The most enjoyable part about country themed parties is,that they are full of fun and excitement and for those few hours, people can live out their fantasies of being Jasmine or a beautiful Chinese Royal!
