How To Plan A Party With A Historical Theme

by Heidi Wheeler

Are you crazy about history? Perhaps you are one of those people who actually loved learning about dates and places of events that took place in the past. If so, you might also be thinking about having a party with a historical theme. If you are, here are some ideas that will help you to plan an event your guests will always remember.

​Pick A Time Of History - You might ask yourself what period of time is the most interesting to you.

  • For example, do you like to study about happenings that took place during the Revolutionary War? Maybe the Civil War fascinates you. 
  • Do you like to study events that took place during Biblical times? Things that happened in the Middle East or Near East would be included in that period of time.
  • Perhaps you like more recent history that you can relate to better. That could include the fun '50s or the crazy 60s.

Send Out Invitations - Of course, you could phone or email the people on your guest list. However, receiving invitations in the mail would probably be more fun.

  • Have the theme be part of the invitation. For example, if you have selected the Civil War as your historic theme, you could have Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara from Gone With The Wind on the front of the invitation.
  • Consider asking your friends to dress as real people of the time of history you have chosen. If you've chosen the '30s, you might see men dressed as gangsters and women dressed as Charleston dancers.
  • Think about asking your guests to bring fun facts from the period of time you have selected for your party. For instance, if you have chosen the '60s, you might hear about The Beatles being on the ​Ed Sullivan Show. 
  • Be sure to include RSVP contact information so you'll have an approximate number of guests to plan for.

Part of the fun will be setting the stage for your party. Think of where the party will be. Will you have it at home, an event theater, or at a rented banquet hall? No matter where you have the party, you can turn your party room into something very special without spending a lot of money on decorations. Think outside the box. Copy photographs from books and have them made into posters to put on the walls. Go to thrift stores, antique stores, and garage sales to find decor that would fit the theme of your party. 

Be sure to take lots of pictures at your event so you can share them with your guests.
