What are some ways to have a successful outdoor theme party?

Outside Theme Parties

If you are having a theme party outside, then you should keep in mind these party ideas while planning:

  • Theme parties are a lot of fun when you are having an outside bash. How about a Mexican fiesta or a Hawaiian luau? Or a patriotic theme party for the Fourth of July? There are plenty of theme decorations available at bricks-and-mortar party stores as well as online. Party experts can make sure you've got everything from the party plates to the party music covered.
  • Start your party with some upbeat music that everyone will love.
  • When it gets dark, tiki torches are a great way to light up an outdoor party. They are inexpensive and festive looking.
  • Keep clean up easy by using disposable paper and plastic products.
  • Food will be a focal point at your party so think your menu through -- from appetizers, to main dishes to desserts. Grilling is always a hit. You can easily keep your food in theme if you are hosting a theme party. For example, fajitas at a Mexican fiesta or pineapple-laced kabobs at a Hawaiian luau.
  • Have all food prepared ahead of time. You don't want to be inside preparing food while your guests are all outside having a good time.
  • Plan for possible rain. Clear out your garage, designate a room in your house or keep a tent on stand by.
  • Don't forget the citronella to keep the bugs away!
