Mardi Gras masquerade party:
These days, the terms masquerade and party go hand-in-hand; and that’s because of how popular Mardi Gras masquerade parties of New Orleans have become. If you want to throw a great party with lots of fun and foot-tapping music, then a Mardi Gras masquerade theme party would be a fantastic idea! Especially so, because your decorations will become easy! Just hang some fancy masks on your wall with some colourful drapes, ribbons and pom-poms, and ask your guests to come disguised as someone (or something) else!
Arabian nights party:
Arabian Nights-themed party, is where enchanted palaces meet exotic animals and desert beauties. Send out your party invites on Arabic parchment roll with a silk-sequined cover! Let your guests know that a land of mystery and intrigue awaits them at your party. You can have an Arabian nights party at your home itself; all you need to do is cover your floor and walls in carpets and drapes. No need for seating arrangement! Spread a mattress and lots of cushions and have a hookah each in all the corners. Get creative and place faux date palms and stuffed camels at the entrance!
Casino Royale theme party:
When it comes to throwing a casino theme party, it has to be 007, of course! And if you play your cards right, your guests will be treated royally and you’ll be the talk of the town. Send out the invitations with Top Secret stamped on them, James Bond style. Here’s a fun quote you can use “M’s Secret Service invites you to spend the evening of December 31st at the Casino Royale (your residence) to celebrate and bring in the New Year!” Serve your guests on casino tables and give them a box of poker chip shaped chocolate coins to take away!
The easiest party to throw would be karaoke party. Download the best party songs and maybe some pop songs as well, and have your guest croon the night away! Rent a karaoke machine for the night of the party and inform the guests beforehand that there would be lots of singing happening. You can also encourage them to dress up as their favorite performer. A fun touch would be to give out awards to those guests who are brave enough to stand up and belt it out.

Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or the New Year, black-and-white parties are a fun way to include your guests in the fun party experience. Send out black and white invitations and let your guests know that the theme and dress code is black-and-white. Suspend black and white helium balloons and faux flowers to create an ambiance. Serve black foods (read more here: ) on white plates and play songs that fit the theme of your party! “Black or White” by Michael Jackson, “Men in Black” by Will Smith, “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” by KT Tunstall, “Fade to Black” by Metallica, “Black Magic Woman” by Santana, are some great songs for a party!
Ultraviolet theme party:
There’s nothing more fun than an ultraviolet light flooding a dark room and reflecting off of anything white to make it pop! The unexpected brilliance that the lights spread gives your room a fun, futuristic atmosphere. But you need to keep a few things in mind; keep the place completely dark and spray ultraviolet paint on anything that could make someone tumble and fall. Rent fluorescent UV bulbs for the party, and hand out a UV glow-stick to all your guests so that they wouldn’t run into each other while chilling! A great and unexpected way to enhance your black light party effect is to incorporate black light responsive drinks. Glow drinks are either white (milk or cream based), or clear (water based drinks).
So what are waiting for! Plan a rocking New Year party to welcome and make it a memorable day for everyone.
