HOLI PARTY THEME Derived from the Hindu “Festival of Color” also known as Holi, this party theme is best served outdoors, unless of course your landlord appreciates modern art. Everybody loves graffiti parties, and everybody loves paint parties, it stands to reason that EVERYBODY will love a Holi Party. Color in powder form…enough said. [...]
Everyone from our generation has watched Cartoons. That, or they are some kind of weird stunted human-being who was denied their childhood. In any event, it is safe to say that everyone has at least heard of cartoons enough to google an iconic one to design a costume. It is loads of fun to walk through a party and relive your Nickelodeon glory days with a room full of Arnolds, Chuckies, Rockos, and whoever elses. Who knows, maybe you’ll even encounter a SpongeBob.
The Jetlag Party Theme is one that few college partiers ever consider an option, and the reason for this is that in the wrong environment it can quickly elicit a noise complaint. However, in the right environment it takes partying to a completely different place. The idea is that timing can make all the difference in the world, and can in and of itself make a theme. Instead of throwing your party starting at 10pm as per every college party / night out ever, throw it just before dawn. Think 4:30am and let it carry through the sunrise. What makes it amazing is that the atmosphere changes completely, the champions of the night who have been out since 10pm the day before will still be going hard, and those who vied to attend will have undoubtedly gotten their weekend’s homework done, taken a nap, and will be fresh and ready to tear up the ENTIRE next day.
If there are two things that the Homeless party will not do…it is 1: make you Relax, or 2: make you Kill the Prime Rib of Micronesia. HOWEVER if you are interested in having an awesome crazy time, then it is the way to go. The Homeless party is one of the most fun parties to decorate and dress up for, and for this reason is a GREAT college party theme.
Halloween is arguably one of the biggest party weeks of the year for college students, and for this reason it requires special Halloween Drinks. For girls, it’s a free pass to dress promiscuously. For Guys and their friends, its an excuse to dress in ensemble outfits, because “being the guys from Entourage would be so fuckin’ sick.” Naturally, all of this vaudevillian hooliganry is predicated on being drunk, but unlike other holidays, Halloween doesn’t have any booze to call it’s own.
In India, the Holi Festival is celebrated at the end of Winter or beginning of Spring in order to usher in the new season. The colors in Holi Powder are meant to be appreciated in a way similar to one appreciating the return of color and life that occurs in Spring. Mythologically, Holi varies by region, but themes that are somewhat constant are love and passion, and common motifs are fire, rebirth, color, and vitality. Seems appropriate for College, right?
