Birthdays and parties are always good fun so why not add some more excitement to yours and throw in a theme!

These themes are adult friendly and don’t all require dressing up (though that is the most fun!)

1. Classy
Dig out that ball gown you wore to your debs five years ago and make an excuse to wear it again. Make your theme black tie and have fun being anything but classy in gowns and tuxes at your houseparty.

2. Party in the US
Go all American and get some red cups (you always wanted an excuse to buy them), some hot dogs, Budweiser, Reese’s Pieces, flags and anything else you can think of!

3. Vintage tea party
Bring the girls around for an afternoon of triangle cucumber sandwiches, pastel macaroons and mimosas.

4. 80’s movie stars
Dress up as your favourite 80’s movie star, we’re thinking Sam Baker from Sixteen Candles, and dance the night away with Marty McFly.

5. Garden party
If the weather permits, take your shindig outside and doll the garden up like an enchanted forest. Lots of flowers, garlands, outdoor lighting and fairy lights will have your garden looking magical.

6. 90’s band party
Channel your inner Lene from Aqua and go all out with gummy bracelets and a Baby G watch.
