Party Theme Ideas for Your Event

There are plenty of good reasons to throw a party, including just because it’s Tuesday. You can throw a party– and even create engaging party themes – that work for any occasion. Whether you’re hosting a small party for the family or a no-holds-barred party for friends, themed party supplies, decorations, gifts, and novelty accessories can help you celebrate in a way that gets everyone in the party spirit.

At Canuck Amusements and Merchandising Ltd. we know that you don’t need a special occasion to celebrate in Calgary – and that themed parties, accessories, costumes, and party favors can help build a great time. We deliver to customers throughout North America, and we’ll be happy to provide you with all the supplies you need for your next celebration.
Theme parties are a great excuse to gather together with friends and family. Start with tableware as the foundation for the whole party, and moving on to party favors – invitations, hanging decorations, balloons, confetti, scatters, table centerpieces, and you can even autograph toys to help preserve memories of the event. Custom banners can offer personalized messages with mixed colors and a festive motif. To help you get party ready, here are ten ideas from Canuck Amusements and Merchandising Ltd. for some fun themed parties in Calgary:
  • Back to Prom with a retro theme party, fancy dress is entirely optional.
  • 1980s Dance Party with leg warmers and dancing to Madonna all night.
  • Champagne and Dessert party with bubbly and mini cupcakes.
  • Mexican Fiesta with Mariachi music and a do-it-yourself Margarita bar.
  • Princess Party, just ask your guests to dress up and supply everyone with tiaras.
  • DIY Spa Party, hire a manicurist and prepare some do-it-yourself face masks for guests.
  • 1920s Speakeasy or Great Gatsby themed parties are always a hit, with 1920s-inspired attire, and retro cocktails inspired by The Golden Era of Hollywood.
  • Farm-To-Table Dinner, get inspired by the latest culinary trend and create a dinner with only locally sourced ingredients to impress your guests. 
  • Toga parties are a classic favorite for many reasons – who can forget the 1978 classic National Lampoon’s Animal House. 
  • Picnic Party, enjoy Calgary’s summer with a picnic blanket in your backyard and serve picnic foods like a charcuterie plate.

A party without a good theme isn’t really a party—it’s really just a group of people all gathered in a room together. When it comes to themed parties, there’s something for everyone, and for every occasion too from birthdays, to bridal showers and weddings, graduations, anniversaries, and even reconnecting with old friends
