Themed party ideas for adults

Party ideas adults

Being a parent is possibly one of the most rewarding experiences life has to offer. However, make no mistake – it can also be one of the most demanding! Splitting duties between work, family, and other obligations can make it hard to find time for yourself.  

While it’s important to factor some “me” time into your week, it’s also important to spend time with your friends. And what better way to throw a themed party? 

Throwing an adult-themed party can be a lot of fun and is a great way to add excitement and variety to any gathering. There are a whole host of different themes you can try out for your themed party – how about a “roaring twenties” party, complete with flapper dresses and jazz music? Or, for something more unique, why not try a “circus” theme, with colorful costumes and circus-themed games? Whatever the occasion, these types of themes can add an element of fun and excitement. 

In this post, we’ll explore some different types of adult party themes, from classy to casual. So whether you are planning a birthday party, anniversary celebration, or want to throw a fun get-together for your friends, we’ve got you covered.

What themes are there?

There are a huge number of themes you could potentially choose for your next themed party. However, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites, ranging from the classic to the more unique.

Roaring twenties

For a truly unique and memorable party, why not take inspiration from the roaring twenties? Guests can dress in classic flapper dresses and other 1920s-inspired clothing, and the decor can be all about glitz and glamour. You can even hire a jazz band to provide some authentic entertainment. Of course, no roaring twenties party would be complete without some delicious cocktails. Serve up classic drinks like gin martinis and champagne cocktails, and your guests will love every minute. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday or an anniversary, a roaring twenties party is sure to be a hit. 

Casino nights

Casino Night 

A Casino Night party is a great way to add a touch of class to any event. Whether you’re hosting a large gathering or something small and intimate, a casino night is sure to be a hit. You can transform your home into a faux casino by allocating dealers, setting up blackjack and poker tables, and decorating your home with casino-themed props. For an extra touch of class, you can even serve casino-themed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Guests will have a blast trying their hand at blackjack, poker, and roulette; and the ladies may even feel like they’re following in the footsteps of world-class women poker players! Whether you’re looking for something more unique or just a fun way to spruce up your next event, consider hosting a casino night party. Your guests will thank you for it.

Murder Mystery

This type of party is always a hit with groups of friends or family members who enjoy solving puzzles. Unlike the other types of parties where the focus is on socialising and dancing, a Murder Mystery party requires guests to work together in order to crack a notoriously difficult case. There are many ways you can go about hosting this type of party, but one of the most important things to remember is choosing a setting that will be conducive to problem-solving. A dimly lit room, for example, might make it difficult for guests to see clues that are hidden around the room. In addition, it’s important to have plenty of refreshments on hand to keep guests’ energy levels up as they brainstorm solutions. With a little planning, Murder Mystery participants can find a entertaining and unique way to spend an evening with friends or family.


If you’re looking for a fun party experience, jump back in time to the 1980s. A classic decade celebrating big hair, bright colours, and outrageous fashion, the 1980s was the epitome of a good time! For your decor, think neon lights and garish signage. As for the food, think Saved by the Bell-style cafeteria fare like pizza and burgers. And don’t forget the candy! Offer up a variety of sugary treats like Tangy Taffy and Warheads. For entertainment, put on some 80’s movies in the background or hire a DJ to spin some classic hits. With an 80’s party, it’s pretty hard to go wrong – this is an era everyone loves!

Masquerade Ball

Masquerade Ball

A masquerade ball is a great way to add a touch of mystery and intrigue to any event. Guests can dress up in elegant masks and gowns, making the event feel like something out of a fairy tale. The concept of a masquerade ball originated in Italy during the Renaissance, when guests would wear masks to hide their identity from each other. This allowed people from all walks of life to mingle and dance without fear of judgment. Today, masquerade balls are often held to raise money for charities or to celebrate special occasions. Whatever the reason for the event, a masquerade ball is a great way to add some mystery and panache to your party – try asking your guests to put on their masks before they arrive so you have no idea who’s who!
