In recent years, party themes – including weddings, graduation parties, birthday parties and everything in between – have become increasingly intricate and complex. Thanks to the rise of Pinterest and social sharing, parties have become a sort of “keeping up with the Joneses” situation, with planners competing – directly or indirectly, intentionally or not – to see who could throw the most unique and creative bash.
Of course, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Party planning can be a fun and rewarding endeavor. But for those who don’t love the process, it may be a relief to learn that simplicity is a major party trend for 2017. On the whole, parties are expected to be less intricate and more sophisticated – think large statement balloons, local snacks and craft cocktails, and a personalized invitation suite that cuts down on DIY.
Read on for specific party themes that are expected to trend in 2017:
- Unique themes: This will likely be the biggest theme trend this year, as parents and planners move away from characters, film and the media and choose unique themes based on kids’ specific interests. Ideas include animals, food, hobbies, sports, dance or something that is completely random. There’s a lot of room for creativity and fun in these themes, and since few others will be creating parties based on these trends, expectations will be low!
- Emojis: Your kids love emojis – and you do too. Why not throw an emoji party? The graphics are already created, and with the huge number of emojis, the possibilities are endless.
- Pokémon: Due to the ongoing popularity of Pokémon Go among all ages, this will continue to be a hot party trend in 2017.
- Movies and characters: These parties are always a hit, and with party material readily available in-store and online, planning is a breeze. Expect parties based on recent popular and party-ready movies such as Moana, Trolls, Beauty and the Beast and, of course, Star Wars.
