Colour theme party ideas


Color themed party

Decorations

Colour themed table

If you are thinking of holding a party with a colour theme, you may want to think about using coloured decorations, coloured table linen and accessories, and including the colour theme in temporary drapes and in posters. You may be able to carry some colours through with coloured lights, for instance by using coloured light bulbs.

Food

The theme can be carried through to the food, although it may be rather dull if all of the food you serve is the same colour.  Food generally looks more appetising if there is a variety of colours on the plate. That’s why restaurants often serve food with a garnish such as a little lettuce and a tomato wedge.  The red/green combination brightens the plate.  So even if you go for a predominant colour in your food, it will usually be a good idea to use some other colours to provide a contrast.

To serve with coffee at the end of the meal, you could put a plate of Smarties or M&Ms on the table.  They include most of the colours you are likely to use in a theme party.

Dress

You don’t need to carry the colour theme through to the clothes your guests are wearing, but you could let them know that you are adopting a colour theme and invite your guests to wear clothing that goes with the theme.

Colour competition

If you think that your friends would enjoy it, you could try a colour competition. For instance, you could ask your friends to come with one item in the colour you are using as a theme. Give a prize to the best or wackiest implementation of this request. Here are some suggestions for a pink theme:

Simple ideas:

  • Pink blouse or shirt
  • Pink scarf
  • Pink tie
  • Pink underwear

Wackier ideas

  • Pink streak in hair
  • One pink eyebrow
  • One pink shoelace
  • One pink varnished fingernail

If you try this, post the best suggestions on this website.  For even more fun, you could try a two colour combination such as red and green, or brown and blue.
