    Hey there !

    My roomates and I are soon to welcome a whole bunch of our friend for our housewarming party.

    We were trying to find out a special something, a theme for the party.

    We had some ideas like :
    - Moustache Party
    - Tail Party (make it your own)
    - Bring your own plant

    Sooo, those ideas are lame, in my opinion, but they thought "Bring your own tail" was gonna be our party. So I have to come with a better idea to top that one and have a real great party !

    Do you have any idea or did you ever experience a fun theme party?

    Thanks !

    Only theme party I've ever been to was a superhero themed party. I enjoyed it because I stayed up the night before hand-making a blue leather mask.

    I like the plant party, nerdy as it is, only because I love plants icon_razz.gif

    I like that... Though, I just have to be a little more strategic on who I'm inviting icon_rolleyes.gif

    EDIT : Aaaaaactually, I just remembered, we ALREADY did that. Halloween 2007, we had a party with the naturist theme. I was a goth naturist. I won the costume contest, thanks to my huge... whig icon_twisted.gif.

    One of the best parties I ever went to was a "Dress as your dream job" party, BUT the guys who organized it also sent out an Excel spreadsheet where you had to type your first name into the first cell of the spreadsheet and it would, based on your name, tell you what occupation your dream job was. Mine ended up being "Bunny Rabbit Trainer". There were all sorts of "jobs" at the party and the best part was that you didn't have to think about WHAT you were going to go as, but had to work within the constraints of what you were told to come as while being creative AND identifiable.

    I don't even think there were that many duplicates.

    I have no idea how to set up a spreadsheet to do it, but it was a ton of fun, especially because you didn't know what your friends were going to come as!

    for the creative ones I've actually enjoyed I would say:
    neon party- get black lights and make people dress in dayglo
    element party- kinda nerdy but everyone dresses like a periodic element
    stereotype party- dress as your fav stereotype
    internet party- dress like something from the internet

    I recently had one where everyone came as their favorite drink, be it a shot, cocktail, mixed drink or beer. The outfits were priceless!

    You have people show up completely dressed in one color. The colors you can use are the colors on a rubix cube. RED, GREEN, BLUE, YELLOW, WHITE, ORANGE. You make a shit ton of jello shots in those colors too.

    So if you chose GREEN for Instance, you'd need a green shirt, pants, underwear, socks, a headband, a bracelet, whatever you want, just all of it green.

    As the night goes on everyone must trade clothing until they are all dressed in the 6 colors on a rubix cube. This makes for some funny looking outfits and helps drunk people bond in a really fun way. I've seen guys end up with girls panties, girls end up wearing colored jockstraps and some other pretty rediculous stuff.

    if your friends are politically aware, you can have a Tea Party--har har---guys come dressed as glen beck with white hair; girls as palin with the sex-bomb librarian outfit.

    you can serve long island iced teas. and of course there will be the obligatory teabagging.

    (i'm only kidding.....this is lame. i am in no way a tea party supporter. i just have politics on the brains)

    I've heard this one the other way around. You show up in a bunch of different rubiks cube colors, and the goal is to leave as one solid color. The best way to do it is go to a salvation army or goodwill to get the clothes, so then you don't have to worry about getting them back!

    Superhero party FTW, though it's not that original I suppose.

    I bet you looked hot in the blue leather mask Ciarsolo - any pics?

    I went to a fun party where we all had to make and decorate our own hats and then wear them for the night.

    However; I love the Rubix Cube and Pimp, Pornstar, Princess party theme as well. You could combine the two?

    Or, mock weddings! You can marry couples off and have a ceremony, and then the divorce court lawyer right behind them!


    White trailer trash twinkie party with little hotdog weenies in bbq sauce.

    'Scary thought... sounds like some of my old family reunions...'

    I just remembered another good one: ABC Party - Anything But Clothes. Pretty self explanatory, but you come wearing other random things that are not clothing. I've heard of duct tape, ribbon, trash bags, even stapled together paint samplers!

    I thought the theme of housewarming parties was...housewarming. Don't people just bring you OXO Good Grip utensils and a bottle of wine?
