Your Guide
To Themes

Whether you're planning a small social, or a two-day ball, a theme can really raise your event game above the normal call of duty.

Not only are themes a great way to get your guests involved, they can also make your event-planning descisions a lot easier.

  • Helps your event planning
  • Themed activities and entertainment tie everything together
  • Lots of photo opportunities
  • Creates a buzz prior to the event
  • Joint costumes are a fun, team-building activity
  • Makes your event more memorable!

Our Pick:

1920s / Prohibition Speakeasy

A very popular theme that suits balls and black tie events events because of the lavish feel. Go with Charleston dancers and a jazz band playing chart tracks in a 1920s style to really make the evening. Just add plenty of moonshine!
