Travel Themed Party
With an idea like this, you can go all out. There are countless ways to decorate, a wide variety of foods you can serve, and many engaging activities you can plan for a travel-themed party!
Narrow Your Theme
You may want your party to celebrate travel in general, and that’s a fine idea. However, you may instead want to narrow your theme to travel within a certain country, region, or part of the world. Or, you may want to focus on one method of travel, such as backpacking or cruising.
No matter what your sub-theme, your travel-themed party will be memorable if it matches your interests and the interests of the people you invite. If some people you invite are not as into travel as others, the people that are passionate about traveling will pass on their enthusiasm to the other guests.
Build Excitement with Themed Invitations
You can begin to build anticipation for your party with themed invitations. Encourage guests to bring travel photos or souvenirs from their travels to share, or ask them to bring a dish of local cuisine from their favorite destination.
There are several options for effective invitations, and some are easier than others. You can hand make invitations yourself, buy some at a store, or use free party invitations online to send to your guests via email.

Get Creative with Decorations
There are many great ideas for travel-themed decorating. If you are focusing on a specific region or country, base your decor on that.
If it’s a general travel-themed party, though, you can print out or buy travel posters, display food in open suitcases, use maps as place mats, and make airplane cupcake toppers on sticks.
You can use balloons filled with helium to create hot air balloons, or make a cardboard train centerpiece out of old shoe boxes.
If you are throwing the party in your garden, you may consider getting a nice garden furniture set.
Play Travel-Themed Games
You can adapt many well-known party games to a travel theme. Instead of pinning the tail on the donkey, you can pin a special landmark on a map. Play twenty questions; the correct answer must be a destination. If you like drawing games, write travel-themed words on index cards, try to draw the word, and encourage other guests to guess.
Teach and learn dances from other countries, or ask travel-themed trivia questions. Play word games, too. For example, one player names a city or country, and the next player must name a city or country that begins with the last letter of the first guest’s choice.
There are many different directions you can go with a travel-themed party. You may be so inspired by this first one that you have more in the future. No matter what happens, you will have a memorable party you will never forget.
