April 2, 2010, Newsletter Issue #285: Ideas for College Theme Parties

Tip of the Week


College theme parties are some of the hottest parties around. College kids absolutely love to host theme parties and tend to go all out when doing so. Here are some examples of college theme parties in case you are in the mood to party like a college kid.

Toga party: have everyone dress up in a toga. Togas can easily be made from any fabric found in a fabric store. The really ambitious can even buy a row of fake foliage to wear as a crown on top of their heads.

Nuts and bolts party: when the guests arrive the women reach into a bag of hardware and grab a nut; the men reach into another bag of hardware and grab a bolt. The party is spent trying to find out whose nut and bolt fit together.

Lei party: Everyone starts out wearing a Hawaiian lei. Party goers go around asking questions to try to get other party goers to say "no." This becomes fun when the questions get absurd and the party goer must answer "yes" or come up with another creative answer or face danger of losing her lei. If someone says "no," then person who asked the question steals their lei and puts it on themselves. The person with the most leis at the end of the evening wins.

Around the world party: each area of the room features a drink from around the world. For example, a White Russian represents Russia and a Margarita represents Mexico. To keep expenses down, the drinks can be featured as shots. Of course, if drinkers are underage then the drinks should be made virgin style.

Pajama party: guests show up wearing pajamas and party all night in their flannels and puppy dog slippers.

Marriage party: both girls and guys pick a number out of a hat and then are paired up if their number matches. They are tied together by the wrist with string or duct tape. In order to get divorced, they must perform a task. Divorce can happen if they aren't compatible, have to use the bathroom or want to stop playing. At the end of the night, the couple(s) still attached win.

70's party: everyone dresses up in their grooviest clothes and dances the night away to 70's music. This can be done with any decade.

Graffiti party: guests show up in plain white t-shirts and everyone is given a marker. Party goers spend the night doodling and writing messages on each other's shirts.

Pink party: everyone wears pink (yes, the guys too). Drinks are pink. Decorations are pink. It makes for a fun setting and is great for picture-taking.

Cops and Robbers: one gender (the cops) must leave an inexpensive but recognizable item in a dish. The other gender (the robbers) must take an item. The cops then spend the night trying to find the robber who took their item. Once they find them, they must handcuff themselves to the person to ensure that they don't steal again.
