Everyone loves a good theme party.  Why not try one of these ideas for your next corporate party.

1. Era

With throwback shows like Mad Men on the air, we have seen an influx in decade influenced parties.  Get your whole office to dress up like a dapper Don Draper or a sophisticated Joan Hollaway and sip martinis and gimlets.  Consider renting décor from the era to complete the look.  To encourage your guests to participate, throw a costume contest and offer a prize to the winner, perhaps the Mad Men series on DVD.

2. Color blocked parties

We may not be invited to the infamous P Diddy “White Party” but we can certainly borrow his idea!  Host a color themed event!  Even Kim Kardashian’s recent wedding was a black and white formal affair.  Choose a color that is easy for everyone to find in their wardrobe, like black and white.  Rent modern lounge furniture and add pops of color to bring a little life to the party.

3. Casino

Discover a new side to your co-workers and gamble the night away playing blackjack (with play money of course) at a casino themed event.  Have the event staff dress like casino staff and hire a Vegas style entertainment group to enthrall your guests.  Write your seating arrangements on a set of cards, and decorate with a lot of red, white and black.

4. Hollywood elegance

An opulent Hollywood themed dinner party with some glitz and glamour will turn your party into a soirée fit for a celebrity.  Gold accessories, faux diamonds and a lot of sparkle are encouraged.  This is one of the few chances for everyone to dress up in their long gowns and tuxedos, so make it count!

5. Food and Cultures

Base your event around a cuisine or country that you love. A few ideas for you: Spanish tapas and wine, Swiss cheese fondue and chocolate, German brats and beers, or a Hawaiian Luau.  The possibilities are endless!  If you can't choose just one, throw an around the world party with cusine from all over the globe!
