Even though I never really throw many parties of my own, when the occasion does come along I’ve always been interested in finding a neat, simple and fun theme to work with. I feel like whenever a party is themed, guests arrive already in a fun and pleasurable party mood. This week my mom and a friend of hers threw a joint birthday party. She told me that the theme was a ‘Purple Party’. I didn’t think much of it and I didn’t think it was anything special. A Purple Party wasn’t a theme I’d seen anyone else use – but, when the day came I walked into the room and loved what I saw. I thought everything was so simple, yet so well done. There was a purple candy counter (including only purple M&Ms and jelly beans) with purple paper bags to match. Purple pencils. Purple candles, flowers and butterflies everywhere. Purple balloons – and even boxes of purple sunglasses, necklaces and pashminas for people to take and enjoy (not pictured). Everyone came dressed either in purple from head-to-toe, or added just a hint of purple to their outfits. Everyone and everything looked so gorgeous!
I have never been fond of purple, but after this event it really has grown on me. A simple, colored theme (not including black and/or white) for a party sounds so fantastic and fun to me now. So classy, simple and beautiful.
If you are throwing party and need a simple theme – I highly suggest picking a fun colour and going all out with it!
