Everyone loves a themed party — and you’ll probably be invited to numerous during your time at college. At some point, you may also like to throw your own party. Make it one to remember by choosing from some of the top themes.

1. Decade Party

Go back in time with a decade party. As well as picking a decade, you can set a specific theme to make your party unique from any other you’ve attended. For instance, an 80s party could have a neon-clothing or Ghostbusters theme. Whatever you choose, you’ll need to play tunes from the era all night.

In the past, decades parties were mostly 60s, 70s, and 80s, but now the 90s and early 2000s happened long enough ago to also be possibilities. Alternatively, you could also go further back in time — roaring 20s parties are particularly popular at the moment.

2. Graffiti Party

In a graffiti party, everyone comes wearing a white T-shirt and marker. You write messages and draw doodles on each other’s T-shirts throughout the course of the night. It’s even better to use highlights and black lights, as you won’t be able to see what’s on your T-shirt unless you’re under a black light. It can be particularly fun to have a graffiti party right before graduation, as it will mean everyone ends up with a memento from their time at college.

3. Disco Party

If you want to make the focus of the night dancing, opt for a disco party. There’s no need to feel limited to just disco music, though — anything with a danceable rhythm is fine.

4. Toga Party

A classic at college is the toga party. If no one has thrown one already, it would be great to do it yourself. Unlike with many other types of costumes, it’s easy to throw together a toga — you only need a plain white sheet and sandals. To complete the evening, make sure to plan some party games that have a Greek or Roman twist.

5. Anything But Clothes

Another option for inexpensive costumes is an ABC party: anything but clothes. Get creative by putting together an outfit made from trash bags, cardboard boxes, towels, lampshades, or anything else you can think of.

6. Pajama Party

For a more intimate party with just your closest friends, consider a pajama party. You can watch movies, eat snacks, and gossip — all in your pajamas. At the end of the night, everyone crashes at your place, and then you make breakfast together in the morning when you wake up. It’s sure to bring back some high school memories.

To throw any kind of party, you’ll need to be living in an apartment that has enough space to host guests. Foundry First is offering student accommodation in London, Ontario. You’ll be living steps from Fanshawe College in a student community where you’ll have a spacious suite to entertain your college friends. Plus, you’ll have the chance to meet plenty of new people in places like the lounge and theatre. Schedule a tour to see what makes our housing facilities unique.
