Whether you’re planning a 21st or a 40th birthday party, a dress up theme is a fun (and hilarious!) option. Throwing a dress up party not only sets the theme for a great¬†celebration, but it also allows you to choose the music, food and decorations to suit. For example, a 80s theme party definitely calls for some trendy disco music, vol-au-vents and some roller skating fun!


So here’s our favourite adult dress up party themes that are sure to make your party absolutely hilarious… and tons of fun!


1. Mad Men Party

For an adults-only party, a Mad Men theme is a must. Bring out your inner Don Draper, whip up a few ‘Old Fashioned’ cocktails and let the good times roll! Suits and tight fitting dresses are a must!
