Awards Party Themes Take Center Stage

Note these dates on your social calendar and build your next theme party around a Bollywood party or Hollywood theme party.

Movie Theme Parties

Pop popcorn and snuggle in with the fam for movie night or dream big and snuggle up to a Marilyn Monroe party.

Film Festival Theme Party Decorations

Whisk your intellectual crowd into a sophisticated night of wine, International party supplies, and the sultry, Abhi Mujhe Mein Kahin or organize France party supplies throughout the banquet facility of your Cannes Film Festival event.

Country Music Party Theme

Celebrate country music in our cowboy party store. Show them city slickers that your tableware party supplies don’t have to be fancy because a Dirt Road Anthem surrounded by NASCAR party supplies is the party theme to remember. Invite military families to your event and open the welcome home theme party with We Take Care of Our Own.

City Theme Party Decorations

Go downtown and dance away at a sweaty, city theme party. Continuously play music videos and movies on wide screen TVs. Promote fresh, theme party faces like pop’s Asher Monroe,

soul’s Adele,

or Bollywood’s Vidya Balan.

Political Theme Party Supplies

Want to shake it up? Times are changing. Make a statement with your theme party supplies and political rally decorations. Anjulie will turn heads and so will Occupy party supplies or national debt party supplies peppered throughout your theme party decorations.

College Theme Parties

There’s time to coordinate a frat party, toga party, or birthday with the MTV awards night. Just add a few props, cocktail accessories, and rock star party supplies to go.

Corporate Theme Parties

Let music loosen up the execs. Invite Taylor Swift to your private concert or just watch her perform at the Grammys along with Coldplay.

Give guests a few elephant hats and decorate with baby elephant standees, safari decorations, and other mascot costumes to get in the spirit of Coldplay’s Paradise video. Paul McCartney will be honored at this year’s Grammys. Celebrate the successes of yesterday, while your company presses ahead into 2012. These retro theme party supply or Wizard of Oz party stores can help you emphasize both achievements and goals.

Funny Theme Parties

Laugh it up with clips of Billy Crystal going Off the Grid for the Academy.

Dress up as your favorite nominee. Send party invitations and decorate with party favors, party tableware, and party decorations (such as Money Ball baseball party supplies) that revolve around your picks. Give awards night male statuettes or awards night female statuettes to the most creative or funny, theme party costumes.

Awards party themes spice up winter dull drums and celebrate successes. Host your own Academy, Grammy, MTV, Bollywood, or Hollywood theme party!

Create your own Personalized White House Banner

The White House will be hosting a major dinner in the East Room to honor Mexican president Felipe Calderon and First Lady Margarita Zavala. Chicago chef Rick Bayless will be serving up some fantastic treats for all of the guests, according to the Washington Post. The chef has been tweeting constantly about the upcoming event.

After party crashers slipped through security at the last state dinner, the entire White House is working to ensure that the event goes of without a hitch this time. Approximately 200 guests will attend the high profile event for a night of feasting and entertainment, the source reports.

While the dinner menu is a closely guarded secret, Bayless did reveal that he has got a Mexican treat prepared: a black mole sauce that involves over 20 ingredients! Holy mole!

Though it made be hard to gain access to a state dinner with out having some serious connections, you can throw your own White House-themed party. Turn your dining room into the East Room by encouraging guests to wear their most elegant gowns and suits. Decorate your home with red, white and blue balloons and streamers, and your friends and family will feel like they’re on Pennsylvania Avenue! Be sure to hang a personalized White House banner.

Host a Sarah Palin Party for Election Night Fun!

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has created a media sensation with her “maverick” politics and big personality. ShindigZ has party supplies for hosting a Sarah Palin themed party that will be a memorable highlight of this election year.

This Sarah Palin Party picks up on well-known highlights of the Sarah Palin story, including beauty pageants, Alaska, hunting, and hockey.

Decorate your Palin-theme party venues with a Ski Lodge Decorating Kit which transforms the room into a festive Alaskan scene including a moose above the fireplace, icicles and a fun ski lodge entrance arch. To accentuate the theme, dress up in a Grand Coronation Tiara, royal sash or robe and a scepter to impersonate Sarah Palin or a John McCain mask to party as her running mate.

Let wildlife take a swing back by having people dressed in a grizzly bear mascot costume or a polar bear mascot costume. If guests come dressed as Sarah Palin, these mascots will make for fantastic photo ops.

ShindigZ’s Sarah Palin party theme is also emphasized by party favors that get guests into character. Bring out the hockey-mom side of the candidate with daisy swirl lip gloss and a hockey stick award pin or highlight the rugged Alaskan Governor side with toy binoculars and a plastic canteen to serve beverages in. Finally, emphasize fiscal conservatism with a pad of Bailout Bucks (toy dollar bills) and toy gold coins. For guests of honor or a prize in party games, try striped ski caps.

Be sure to have some games and activities to keep the fun going at your party. Create a game of “Pin the lipstick on the pitbull,” have some election trivia, or have a best Palin costume contest. Use our best costume trophy or a pageant sash as an award for the most creative Sarah Palin costume or the best look-alike.

As food for your Palin party, serve All-American favorites such as burgers and fries, buffalo wings, and chili, plus finger-foods like pretzels, chips and snack mixes. For desert serve up some Baked Alaskan. Serve your party snacks in patriotic style by decorating your tables in red, white and blue supplies. Cover the table with solid red, white or blue table covers and table skirts. Over the top sprinkle some silver star confetti. To the middle add a festive firecracker centerpiece or a coordinating kings crown for the pageant theme.

Love her or hate her, everyone’s talking about Sarah Palin and a Palin themed party is just one way to celebrate this historic election. ShindigZ has tons of party supplies for hosting debate watch parties, political rallies and election night events. With an election this big, it’s only right to make Election Night memorable.

Decorate Patriotic Tables for Election Events and Banquets

Patriotic-Tableware-EnsembleIf you’re having an debate watch party, election results party, candidate support dinner or any other political event this election season, you’ll need a festive table to bring all your decorations together and create an area for guests to eat and talk the issues. Here’s our tips for creating a fantastic patriotic party table!

Start by covering your table. Create a solid base using red, white, or blue plastic tablecovers or add some flare using a patriotic star table roll. The patriotic stripe tablecover is another fun look. Polish the look by adding a super shine party table cover in metallic red or blue or a wavy table skirt for a textured alternative.

Next, sprinkle some silver star confetti over the top of the table to add a little shine.

Add the final touches to your table with gleam n’ fest patriotic garland around the edge of the table. Finally, add a centerpiece to the top. We suggest the Festive Flags and Stars Centerpiece or a patriotic Firecracker Centerpiece.

Guests will need something to eat off of! Patriotic tableware makes  your table look even better. They tableware coordinates with the decorations for a polished look. Coordinate solid plastic tableware and cutlery in red, white and blue colors. Or, choose a tableware ensemble in a patriotic pattern. The U.S. Pride Flag Tableware is a fantastic option!

Create cutlery bundles using red, white or blue napkins and patriotic milky way garland. Simply wrap the cutlery in the napkins and tie it closed with the red, white and blue star garland. For an extra-special touch, use personalized napkins with your campaign slogan and logo embossed on them!

Add party favors such as Old Glory Skimmers or personalized campaign buttons to the table to finish it all off. The favors add a decoration during the event and guests can take them with them or wear them around for a festive, patriotic look.
