10 Theme Ideas for Events

Glamour at the Movies

Invite your friends to a glamorous movie-themed event and roll out the red carpet for them at the front door. Whether you're watching a Hollywood awards show or your favorite flick, this event can be tailored to suit many different groups (or audiences). A teenagers' sleepover could include a private screening of the latest tween box-office hit, right in the comfort of your living room. You could even take everyone outside to watch movies in the backyard if you have a projector and a large, white bed sheet to hang on a clothes line to act as the movie screen. The party menu for teens can be as simple as candy and popcorn. Adults could arrive in suits and cocktail dresses for a live showing of the Academy Awards, complete with champagne and fancy hors d'oeuvres. Everyone, regardless of age, will love to take home photos snapped by a photographer -- the paparazzi -- as party favors once the event is over.
