When you first decide that you’re throwing a party, one of the first things that you may start debating is whether or not you want to have a general theme for the event. If you’re stuck on what you want to do, here are some pros and cons you should consider before settling on a theme: 

Pros

Make Your Party Stand Out

Rather than have the same aesthetic and look of a traditional party, a specific theme help makes your party stand out and be memorable to guests. For example, if you decide to have an “Under the Sea” theme, your guests will always remember walking into a room adorned in blue and other bright colors.

Make Decorations More Specific

Without a theme or color scheme, your decorations can sometimes seem commonplace or average. When you have a specific theme, you can get very creative and choose decorations that make the party pop. For example, a casino theme can allow you to incorporate playing cards, dice, and poker chips in your decorations.

Cons

Themes Can Sometimes Deter RSVPs

While this isn’t the case with every theme, if the theme you choose requires a certain dress code, it may deter guests from wanting to attend. After all, having to dress in a specific color or in clothing from a specific time period can be a bit more difficult than throwing on something you already own.

Easy to Misexecute 

When you commit to a theme, you really need to commit to it in order to do it properly. If you don’t use the proper decor, invitations, etc., the theme can feel lackluster and underdone.
