We say it all the time here at SHOT – while not every party is a theme party, every party has a theme. While brainstorming a great theme for your party, remember to focus on the experience you’re trying to create. The theme of your party is one of the most important thing that we, as hosts, have to get right. It will determine all the planning, will communicate to your guests exactly what to expect, what to wear, what the food will be like, and more. So, coming up with the perfect theme is integral to how to plan a party.

We spent some time putting together an extremely comprehensive list of over 100 theme party ideas to help you get your party hosting creativity flowing!

Murder mystery party tip!

Get the package that fits your CONFIRMED guests, not the “maybes” and “on-the-fencers”. We live this hosting life, and know that not everyone can firm up an RSVP (and let’s face it, some are just flaky… yup, we are just dropping truth today…). The packages are designed to have everyone, even if they aren’t a suspect themselves, be fully involved with the mystery, so don’t worry about anyone feeling like they aren’t involved. Trust us – most times the Sleuths have more fun than the Suspects.
