5 Party Themes for Any Age, Occasion or Gender

With the advent of Pinterest, there are so many party theme options out there. However, most can be expensive to pull off or only satisfy a small demographic. After working for over a year with a wedding venue, I've seen some pretty crazy themes! (Hint: Bright pink only works if you're under 10).

The 5 party themes below accommodate both genders, any occasion, and all but one satisfy any age. The book, camping, and travel theme utilize free decorations: newspaper, brown paper bags, and old maps, respectively. The Mickey theme utilizes basic dollar store red, white, and black goods and a mickey-ear stencil.

Enjoy these 5 Party Themes for Any Age, Occasion or Gender

1. Books: newspaper table runner and placemats, bookmark favor, stacked book centerpieces, catalog card invites and wish cards, newspaper flower garland

2. Camping/Outdoors: build your own trail mix station, s'more, flashlight tag, pinecone and branch centerpieces, scavenger hunt, brown paper bag table runner and placemats, dirt pudding cups

3. Monopoly/game themed: popcorn, top hat centerpiece, monopoly man dress up photo booth, "chance" card raffle, game board place mat

4. Mickey/Minnie: black and red table settings, mouse ear cookie cutters, pin the tail on the mouse, cheese crackers and oreo cookie snacks, mouse ear headband favors, hunt for the cheese scavenger hunt

5. Travel: old postcard name cards/invites/wish cards, map placemats, globe centerpiece, map or flag garland, mini pretzel and nut favors, boarding pass invite, boxed lunch


  1. Great ideas. I like the travel theme the best. My daughter's birthday is coming up. She wants to have a movie night. Visiting from Mom's The Word Linkup.
