Even though they know a party is on the way, why not make it super special using a fabulous birthday theme. If you’re confused about where to start from, then we have a birthday theme ideas list already in line for you. So if you are a parent, siblings, cousin or friend wondering where to start on the birthday planning, here are some ideas for you.

1. Movie-based Birthday Theme

Youngsters who are movie buffs might appreciate your research in movies and then a movie-based birthday theme. They need just the opportunity to let all that gathered up information spill away, so make their birthday a great day for them. You can decorate the venue in movie posters (try their favorite ones), design a cake with their favorite character, instead of steamers, use camera reels, make a photo booth with a feeling of being in a movie poster, and much more.

2. Bibliophile Birthday Party Themes

Bibliophile means people who are a lover of books. Reading is not just a hobby but a passion that consumes them day and night. It might seem like a plain and simple hobby for you, but if you might do simple research, you will find how vivid and vivacious the bookish worlds are.
For a bibliophile birthday theme, you can use any bookish world (such as Hogwarts, Narnia, Camp Half-blood, Arrakis, etc.) as your vantage point and begin your preparations or combine the elements to create your magical world.

Try to bring back the childhood by using characters like Scooby, Power Rangers, Power puff girls, Spiderman, etc.

If you have noticed, most of the bars and clubs are decorated with neon lights.  It fills us with immense pleasure and just sets the mood right. They are always a great attracter for the young crowd. So if you want to be a cool party organizer, and then go for these neon-based party themes.

7. Historical and Geographical Party Theme.

History has always sounded so boring when a teacher starts ranting in the class. Students get drowsy and even the adults could feel their eyelids drooping. But, does it have to be that boring? History is about the past, the things that have happened, the wars that have been fought, the diplomatic tracts that have been constructed. It can be fun and interesting to know about the culture of Africa before it was colonized. It can be interesting to guess the path of continental drift. If the birthday boy/girl seems interested in stuff like these, you have just landed on a perfect page.

8. Christmas Party Theme.

If birthday and winters are around the corner, then one of the suitable themes would be to combine them. In the Christmas-based 21st birthday theme, you could use the same color palette as Christmas and create a Christmas vibe. After all, Christmas is a time to celebrate.

9. Masquerade Party Theme

If the birthday boy/girl finds himself/herself swooned by Bridgerton and such Victorian-style grandeur, this is the perfect stop for you. Masquerade Balls were super in trends in the Victorian era, but that doesn’t mean they are not now. You can easily create a masquerade-based birthday party by providing a mask to every guest. It will delight them immensely for sure.

10. Music-based Party theme.

If there are movie buffs, then there are music masterminds too. We often take music as something that everyone loves. It should not be ignored that while we like listening to music there are people out there who live amidst the music. They create music, critic music, tune music, and play with music and whatnot. For all those music masterminds out there, try these party themes.
