If you’ve already hosted parties before, you know what it’s like to have a movie-themed party. However, films like The Great Gatsby, Alice in Wonderland, and Grease have been used as a reference for tons of party so it’s time for you to update the updated theme.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, parties since 2019 have been postponed so you might have missed your chance to host a party with the movies released from that year. The good news is that in the 4th quarter of 2021, many countries became open to gatherings and parties as long as the minimum health protocols are followed.
With that, here’s the list of the most popular films from 2019-2021 that you can use as references for your next themed party!
1. Avengers: The End Game Theme
It’s time to go big with the Avengers: The End Game theme party! Yes, it’s been a while since The End Game was released but the hype never stops.
So Thanos removed half of the population when he snapped his fingers, then the remaining Avengers planned to get back to him. At first, they’re all hesitant to work again even after five years of mourning for the ones they love. But of course, they still decided to save the universe.
Now, if you’re planning to host a party with this theme, you can be as detailed as you want but you should ask for help from event coordinators to lessen your stress.
Start the party with a gauntlet cake that everyone will surely love. Then, you can focus on the decor which represents the Avengers. You can have a dartboard with a design similar to Captain America’s shield, some hammers just like Thor’s, and Spiderman’s web.
When it comes to food, you can also some Hulk jello shots, Black widow-inspired cupcakes, and Ironman tacos.
2. Cruella Theme
Cruella is the prequel to the well-known film, 101 Dalmatians (1996). It’s the story about a girl named Estella who’s born to be creatively different. Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates her talent so she hid it ‘til she met Baroness von Hellman.
It’s easy to think of a Cruella-themed party because you’ll just need black, white, and red for the decorations, food, and drinks. You can ask your guests to wear black and white, while as the host, you’ll get to wear red.
As for the food, you can serve cookies and cream flavoured deserts, blank and white cupcakes, and just add some notes that are based on the movie for some food that can’t represent the theme.
3. Kingdom: Ashin of the North Theme
Kingdom: Ashin of the North is another prequel, but this one’s based on the Netflix hit series Kingdom. It’s the story of the main character, Ashin, who wants to cure her ill mother so she hunts for the plant that guarantees to bring dead people back to life.
Meanwhile, 15 people are found dead in a Josean mountain which sparked misunderstandings and more killings. Ashin’s family and friends took the blame so she was left devastated.
Although this movie is a heartbreaking one, it can still serve as a great theme for your next party. As you may already know, Kingdom has plenty of zombies so there’s no excuse for not having a zombie-theme party.
It’s best if you hire event coordinators to help you set up the venue and the zombie-related food.
4. Free Guy Theme
Free Guys is about the story of a bank teller who discovers that he’s just a non-player character (NPC) in a video game. He wants to do something with his life like saving the world and having a girlfriend so he tries his best to remember everything every day.
Since this is a movie based on a video game, the outfits of your guests can be based on the characters. In addition, your party venue can also look as if you’re inside a video game. Isn’t it cool?
That being said, you should assign a role for each of your guests, and ask them to remain in character for a certain time being. Additionally, you can prepare games that are based on video games like your all-time favourite, Pinball. Oh, don’t forget to serve some bubblegum ice cream!
5. Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)
Another option is Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) where Harley and her girlfriends save the day on their own. It’s a girl-power movie, indeed!
This movie is best for a slumber party where you can serve drinks based on the main characters. You can also dress like them, and be as colourful as you like. And according to Harley, you should order some pizzas and pasta. It’ll be so much fun!
6. Demon Slayer -Kimetsu No Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train Theme
Can’t get over Mugen Train? Then you should have a party!
As you may already know, Tanjiro’s family was murdered and he’s finding the cure to return his sister, Nezuko. Together with Inosuke and Zenitsu, they continue their mission of being demon slayers into the Mugen Train.
As the characters have their unique personalities, it’s not that hard to think of a costume. In addition, you can decorate the venue with sceneries from the film. You can ask event coordinators to help you find some fox-themed masks which you can give as a souvenir.
7. The Mitchells vs. The Machines Theme
Whether you want to dress up as the Mitchels or the Machines, you’ll probably enjoy a party with this theme.
First of all, the movie is about a family road trip that led to surviving the robot apocalypse. Although they’re still facing an internal family problem, they also need to find out who’s behind the apocalypse, and survive without getting caught by the robots.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to embrace your weird side, and start planning the party of the century!
Are you excited about your upcoming party? Well, you should! It’s not every day you get to dress up to be a movie character so you should go all-out!
