Over the years, the event industry has changed time and time again, in what we enjoy, where the standards sit and how they’re conducted but through all of its changes, one thing has remained constant. The love we have for a well put together themed event.

If you have been to a themed event before, then you will already know why, but for those that haven’t, let me tell you. A properly thought out theme is a marvellous thing, as it can transform any boring old party into an event set in the heart of a 16th-century banquet, or on the gleaming streets of Las Vegas, or at the bottom of the deepest oceans. The ability to theme an event allows you to take your favourite setting and share it with your guests.

With that being said, here are our top 5 most popular themes for 2020! (in no particular order)

#1 Masquerade / Venetian Theme

I think you can imagine why this fantastic theme is so very popular. With its combination of elegant costumes, mysterious masks and civilised atmosphere, the Venetian ball is an excellent option for those that are looking to create a memorable night that is both unique, exciting and stylish.

#2 The Wonderland Winter Wonderland Theme

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Well, a lot of people are dreaming that all year round, so why not make it happen! Although this theme does make for a mesmerising one during the holiday season, winter wonderland is perfect for events all year round; like weddings, anniversaries, parties or winter events!

#3 James Bond / 007 Theme

Now before I explain how amazing this theme is, I would like to add that James Bond, Las Vegas and sometimes even the Hollywood theme can fit together perfectly! So don’t get stuck with just one theme! Mix and match!

Back to Bond. Similar to the Venetian theming, 007 is an excellent idea for creating a stylish and exclusive atmosphere that your guests can truly get lost in. Dressed in their nicest finery, you can spend the night sipping martinis, spinning the roulette table and of course, performing espionage.

In addition to being perfect for private events, the James Bond theme is perfect for creating an exciting atmosphere at conference events or company meetings.

#4 Sci-FI & Futuristic

A really cool theme for such a wide array of events, the science fiction theme is an excellent idea for creating an interesting event as it is such a massive part of popular culture. Predator, Doctor Who and Star Wars, are just some of the choices you have in creating a Sci-Fi themed event

Similar to James Bond, this theme can be well used in conference and experiential events also, as you can cater it towards specific objectives, for example, “Focus on the Future” theme can help an event based around the future development of staff, branding, sales etc.

#5 Traditional Christmas

Come on now, you didn’t think we would write this blog and not feature traditional Christmas, did you?

The star at the top of the Christmas tree of themes, traditional Christmas is one that will always be a favourite. With a warm, homely atmosphere, colourful decorations and recollections of ripping open gifts in the early hours of Christmas morning, this theme is an ultimate night of fun.

Obviously, with this theme, you are slightly restricted to Late November and December time, but there is nothing that gets people as excited for an event than knowing Santa might be there!
