Putting theme parties back to basics: the alphabet party

Going back to basics for your themed event party is a great way of getting your guests involved in the theme. The imagination and creativity shared among guests is the perfect ice-breaker. The theme really is the basics; pick a letter! The rest is up to your imagination and a good décor hire company to bring your ideas to life.

Pick a Letter:

This isn’t just for pre-schoolers anymore. The way you go about choosing the letter is up to you, but it tends to be the first letter of the first name of the person hosting the party. If your ‘A party’ is a raging success why not follow it up a ‘B there’ party, it seems only natural.

The beauty of this theme is that you can implement it into absolutely everything. If we use ‘A’ as our example:


  • The food.You could use it in a broader sense by serving African food for your party. Alternatively you can make each dish correlate with your theme. I.e. Antipasto for appetisers, angel hair pasta with andouille sausage for main and apple crumble with almond crumb toppings for dessert.



  • The drinks.Seeing as this is not a party for pre-schoolers and apple juice is not what your guests are likely to want, try cocktails. Appletinis, Absinthe Martinis and Amaretto.



  • The décor. Besides using the letter A as décor this could be absolutely anything from Aardvarks to Azure (that’s a shade of blue for any of you planning a colour party).


You could go for a full blown ABBA theme with these ABBA cut outs; GIMME! GIMME! GIMME!

You could even stick to an African theme all the way through, from the food to décor.


  • The costumes.Get everyone in on the fun and make it a dress-up party! This is wonderful ice-breaker and a peek into the creativity of others. You could go as an Astronaut, an Alien, Austin Powers or Alice in Wonderland.


Themed event parties are all about the interaction and ambience of an event. By collecting the creative ideas and connecting them with the ideas of others (along with some help from a trusted décor hire company) is a sure way to throw one pretty A-mazing party.
