If your event is in the evening, place colorful candles (preferably red, white, or green), lanterns, or luminaries at different corners of your venue.
A carnival event theme can mean be an interesting theme for kids and adults alike. From streamers, balloons to banners and bunting, carnivals give you an opportunity to illustrate the theme idea beautifully. Just like Mardi Gras, you can organize a parade, entertain your attendees with jugglers or host a happening carnival party at your circus.
10. The Winter Wonderland
Create the magic of Christmas with the winter wonderland theme. Silver sprayed branches, twinkling lights, and cotton snowflakes when added to your decor can make your venue a real wonderland. For food and drinks, you can offer roasted chicken along with champagne, wine, or your choice of beers.

Aloha! As you greet your attendees with this term, welcome them with Leis (necklace or garland made of flowers) and tropical cocktails like a Piña Colada, Mai Tais, or a tropical punch with real fruit.

13. China Town
Transform your venue with a string of lights with vibrant colors like red, orange, crimson, and gold for your decor. You can place Chinese lanterns in every corner of your space. Let your attendees dress up in traditional attire. The ladies can wear a Qipao while the men can wear a Changshan (long shirt).
This theme doesn’t need an introduction. Whether you’re hosting a food fest with beers or a wine tasting event, the Oktoberfest event theme is sure to rock your event.

Bollywood is known for its best dialogues and its upbeat music. Kickstart the party with the greatest Bollywood hits and make sure everyone is dressed in traditional Indian attire. While the ladies can be dressed in a saree, lehenga, or a salwar, men can wear kurtas or sherwanis in the best color schemes.

With white-robed guests, a buffet of grapes, cheese and barbeque chicken and freely flowing wine, kickstart your Toga-themed event or a Gladiator party.
