How To Throw a "Time Travel" Theme Party

Have you ever wanted to go back in time? Say, to a decade from your childhood, or maybe even to an era from before you were born? If you're looking for a reason to celebrate with friends and family, consider a time travel party where you and your guests can venture back to some of your best memories or to historical time periods you wish you could've been a part of. Check out these tips for some inspiration to help you get started:
  1. Pick A Time Period: Before you can outline all of your party's details, you must decide on the time period that your party will reflect. Once you've made a decision, design your invitations in a way that matches the time period to get your guests in the mood before they even arrive.
  2. Suggest Costumes: To really set the tone, ask your guests to come dressed in costumes that match your party's theme. Encourage guests to be creative, and for some added fun, consider including a costume contest into the night's festivities.
  3. Decorations: Choosing the right decorations are crucial for any theme party. Before deciding on your decor, do some research on your time period to learn about what was popular, and then come up with the materials that you think will reflect it best.
  4. Music: A party isn't a party unless there's music. For your theme party, create a playlist of songs that were popular during the time period you've chosen and have them play throughout the night. For some extra entertainment, consider a game of "name that tune."
  5. Role Play: If your guests are going to come dressed up, why not dress up as an iconic person from the given time period? Encourage guests to come dressed as a celebrity, political leader, or other influential person that really captures the theme you're going for.
If you can't seem to make a decision on a time period, remember that you can always ask guests to choose one of their own! For some more tips on how to throw the perfect time travel party, click here.
