1. Masquerade Party Venue

This Masquerade party lets you get in touch with your most glam side. Sequins are a great masquerade theme party decoration and can set the masquerade mood with your decorations. Your venue should be a place with a classic chandelier or better a candelabra. That will instantly sparkle up your party. But if your venue budget isn’t chandelier-level, there’s a simpler way to add some class and shine to your venue. You can drape glittery garland around the venue.           masquerade theme party

2. Great Gatsby Theme

The glitz and glitter of a Gatsby gala are unmatchable. You can celebrate the Roaring Twenties with champagne out of a coupe. And even mix up a bootlegger cocktail. Furthermore, adding in some Art Deco decor would be a great idea. We would recommend something bold or geometric patterns and metallic hues. And dont forget to encourage your guests to match their masquerade ball mask with their flapper outfit.

Mardi Gras and Masquerade themes go together like New Orleans and jazz. Mardi Gras masquerades are a traditional part of the celebration. Everyone is going to feel like they’re in the French Quarter with this theme. When you host your masquerade ball, encourage everyone to wear green, purple, and gold. With this theme, you can hand out beaded necklaces too as party favors.

But you shouldn’t have to limit yourself to only the classics. Keep the color scheme related to the likes and dislikes of the couple if it’s an anniversary party. If it is for a common event trying going for a general theme that usually works for your guest’s age group. Plan your color scheme to match your theme and you can also hand out matching masks.
