Planning a party and need a theme? As most people know, a well planned party only gets better with a well planned theme. Therefore, deciding on a party theme becomes very important for party planning. A party theme incorporates all aspects of your party by using the same theme for all items (decorations, invitations, party favors and table ware). For the most part, there are two types of themes to choose from, new and classic.

Parties held every year are most likely to have a classic party theme as they become a tradition. On the other hand, a new party theme is one that is temporary and is popular for that season. Classics take years to get that way, but it's possible for some new party themes to become classics with time.

The great thing about classic parties is the cost saving ability to use the same themes year in and year out. Some great classic party themes are sports related (basketball, football, soccer, bowling, etc…). Decorations for these themes tend to be simple and have been around for years. For the most part, the decorating revolves around finding items that relate to the sport and using them for the decorations with the addition of sport related tableware (paper plates, cups, and napkins).

There are many classic party themes that are considered traditional boy and girl theme party items. For instance, the boys in your house may enjoy a race car party, wrestling party or an army party, whereas, the girls in your house may like a traditional doll party, tea party or a dance party. Cartoon characters such as Winnie the Pooh and Mickey Mouse are used as classic party themes. Both of these parties are considered classics because they have been around for years.

Today's new theme party ideas bring new variety, with some becoming very popular. For the boys in your family, having a NERF party may be just what the kids have ordered. Most of the guests coming to this party know that it is a NERF party and bring their own NERF items (NERF weapons, toys and other activities). On the other hand, girls these days love having princess parties. We've seen a variety of new party ideas added to the princess party. Other new party themes center on game shows, music artists and television shows. For the most part, these party themes are popular as long as the show or artist remains popular.

We have looked at different party themes, both classic and new ones that can be used for parties. The decorations, party invitations and party favors for both the traditional and classic parties may vary, but the food and drinks can remain the same. Therefore, a new party theme, such as, "The Jonas Brothers," may have decorations related to the Jonas Brothers, but have traditional food and desserts for the guests. Take the time to plan and organize regardless of the theme for all to enjoy.
