You Can't Go Wrong With a "Theme" Party!

A couple weeks ago I wrote about throwing an awesome graduation party for your son or daughter with the Hawaiian Luau theme.  Since a lot of high school and college graduations are right around the corner I thought I'd throw out a few more ideas for some great themed parties that everyone will enjoy! Mardi Gras - you can't go wrong with this party theme and as they say, Mardi Gras in New Orleans is known as "the biggest party in the world".  Decorations, music and costumes are all part of this theme.   You'll have fun decorating with all the festive colors of Mardi Gras in royal purple, emerald green and shiny gold.  Instead of with the Hawaiian Luau theme of putting a lei around the neck of your guests as they arrive, with Mardi Gras you would greet your guests with a string of beads or even a really cool feather mask.  Mexican Fiesta - the word fiesta means "a festive celebration" and that's exactly what a graduation party should be.  You can greet your guest senoritas and senoras with colorful sombreros.  The colors of the Mexican flag of red, white and green are ideal when decorating for the party.  Christmas lights around your deck gives the party a festive ambiance.  Pick up some Mexican ponchos, maracas and of course a Mexican fiesta would not be complete with a pinata!    You'll find everything you need here at Halloween Express.  We have all your Mardi Gras and Mexican Fiesta party costumes, decorations and accessories that you'll need to throw the graduation party of the year!
